For the first time since 2006, Quinton Jackson is back in Japan for a fight.
He'll take on Ryan Bader at UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" this Sat., Feb. 25, 2012, at the Saitama Super Arena and to commemorate the occasion, the UFC has released a special poster dedicated solely to "Rampage."
How you digging it, Maniacs?
Jackson, of course, isn' the only one in action, as the world's largest fight promotion has brought a fairly stacked card to "The Land of the Rising Sun" in its first trip back in over a decade. In the main event, Frankie Edgar defends the lightweight title against Ben Henderson while Jake Shields welcomes Yoshihiro Akiyama to the welterweight division.
In addition, Joe Lauzon will battle Anthony Pettis in a lightweight bout with serious divisional ramifications. That's without mentioning Yushin Okami vs. Tim Boetsch or Cheick Kongo vs. Mark Hunt. Or even Hatsu Hioki vs. Bart Palaszewski.
All seven of those bouts will be broadcast on the main pay-per-view card, folks. It's a doozy.
