UFC 144 poster for 'Edgar vs Henderson' on Feb. 26 in Japan

The UFC is turning Japanese (I really think so) this coming Feb. 26, 2012, as the world's largest fight promotion will head to the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, for UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson."

The event will be headlined by a lightweight championship showdown, as current titleholder Frankie Edgar puts his strap on the line against top contender and former WEC lightweight king, Ben Henderson.

But that's not all.

You just knew the powers that be would throw a few names on the card that should draw interest in the "Land of the Rising Sun," and they've done so in the form of Yoshihiro Akiyama and Quinton Jackson, who will take on Jake Shields and Ryan Bader, respectively.

Not a bad fight card, huh? And the poster is pretty slick, too.
