Resident SB Nation/MMAFighting photographer, Esther Lin, was on the scene in Japan to shoot several of the notable fighters who will compete on the UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" pay-per-view (PPV) main card at the event's open media workouts.

Naturally, the two men who will compete for the lightweight title in the main event of the evening, Frankie Edgar vs. Ben Henderson, were on the scene to promote their not so highly-anticipated 155-pound clash, as well as work up one of the last few real sweats prior to fight night (Sat., Feb. 25, 2012) in "The Land of the Rising Sun."

Co-main event participants, Quinton Jackson vs. Ryan Bader, were also in attendance prior to their 205-pound bout, along with welterweights Jake Shields and Yoshihiro Akiyama, who will also throw down on the main card. And don't forget about Takanori Gomi.
