Frankie Edgar: Ben Henderson is a tough guy, but there's a reason I'm the champion (Video)

"I'm not in this to play second fiddle to anybody. It's not so much the belt that holds the significance, it's what the belt means and how much I worked for it, how much my team's worked for it and how much my family's sacrificed for it. So yeah, I'm not gonna give that belt up very easily. When I leave Japan, I'm gonna come home still the champion. I know Ben's a tough guy, but there's a reason I'm the champion."

For the first time in over a decade, the world's largest fight promotion is headed back to "The Land of the Rising Sun," as UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" invades the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, this Saturday night (Feb. 25, 2012) live on pay-per-view (PPV), featuring a lightweight championship bout that sees reigning titleholder Frankie Edgar put his strap on the line against former WEC 155-pound kingpin Ben Henderson.
