For the first time in over a decade, the world's largest fight promotion is heading back to "The Land of the Rising Sun," as UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" invades the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on Sat., Feb. 25, 2012.
The pay-per-view event features a lightweight championship bout that should prove to be a thriller, as reigning titleholder Frankie Edgar puts his strap on the line against former WEC 155-pound king Ben Henderson.
Also in action on the card is Quinton Jackson, who will look to bounce back from his loss to light heavyweight deity Jon Jones against Ryan Bader. And don't forget about Yoshihiro Akiyama making his welterweight debut against Jake Shields, who is looking to avoid a three fight losing streak.
It's certainly not the most loaded of fight cards, but it's a pretty damn good event, Maniacs.
