UFC 150 video preview for 'Henderson vs Edgar 2' (Extended)

Former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) Lightweight Champion, Ben Henderson, will look to defend his Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 155-pound title for the first time when he takes on the man who he beat to win the gold, Frankie Edgar, at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colo., on Aug. 11, 2012.

UFC 150: "Henderson vs. Edgar 2" will be a rematch from UFC 144, which took place earlier this year from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. "Smooth" walked away with a tight unanimous decision victory, but many mixed martial arts (MMA) fans, including Edgar, felt that the "Answer" did enough to retain his belt.

So now it's time to run it back.

In other pay-per-view (PPV) main card action, Jake Shields -- who will make his 185-pound debut for the promotion -- will collide with The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) alum Ed Herman in the co-featured fight of the night. Donald Cerrone will also look to take center stage against Melvin Guillard, while Buddy Roberts -- thanks to an injury to Rousimar Palhares -- will attempt to "Thunder" past Yushin Okami.
