As the post-mortems and dissections of last weekend’s Fox-televised UFC card in East Rutherford continue, some hard news – welcome hard news has emerged: The Benson Henderson vs Frankie Edgar fight we had mentioned two days back is now official! Mark the date: August 12 (aus time). It will likely be the main event at UFC 150 at Pepsi Center, Denver.
Henderson had got the nod from the judges when they had lit up Japan in UFC 144 less than three months back; however, large numbers of fans and the media contingent had seen things rather differently. Come 12th August the controvery can be put to rest. Edgar has proven himself a sportsman by giving rematches to vanquished foes so he deserves this rematch. The prize for the winner, besides the title belt, of course may well be a matchup with the sport’s most ‘happening’ fighter: Nate Diaz.
