The UFC 150: "Henderson vs. Edgar 2" event is still a couple of days away, but that doesn't mean main event participants Ben Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar couldn't get together for a pre-fight staredown.
That's exactly what they did earlier today (August 9, 2012) at the press conference which was held at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver to tie up any loose ends prior to this weekend's (August 11) lightweight title showdown at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
In addition to the main event match-up of Henderson vs. Edgar, top-ranked lightweights Donald Cerrone vs. Melvin Guillard will collide. They're former teammates and the winner will be making a move towards the top of the 155 pound division.
Check out the co-main event staredown after the jump.
