"Benson Henderson's first defense of the UFC lightweight belt is likely to take place in Denver.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) today confirmed with sources close to the event that Henderson and former champ Frankie Edgar have verbally agreed to meet at UFC 150, which is expected to take place on Aug. 11.

Edgar (14-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC), of course, surrendered the belt to Henderson (16-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) at this past February's UFC 144 event."

Not happy with the precedent this sets. I think Edgar/Penn 2 and Edgar/Maynard 3 were legitimate rematches. Edgar whining that he had to fight two rematches is a terrible argument. Rematches should be about the closeness of the previous fight, not that a fighter deserves some sort of privilege to a rematch because he has been in close fights previously.

I can get the time off to go
Just don't know if I wanna do it. I am hoping 151 will
Be in late Aug or Sept in the states. Only thing is the main event could easily be non title

Let's get this over with.

I was going to say this in the other thread about Hioki not taking the title shot and asking for another fight.

Pettis and Rashad were passed over and lost out on title shots and I thought it was odd Hioki decided not to take the title shot with the possibility of losing it.

We complain about the judges. Imagine if mma fights were judged by knowledgeable Playground members?

We still get the same results. It's inevitable.

For the record, this should be a better fight than the first and I don't expect it to go the distance.

I thought Edgar won anyways so lets this happen. Its not like there is a #1 contender ready just yet...Miller/Diaz still have to fight.

Cool...maybe Frankie can get his title back. I am one of the rare few who thought Frankie got robbed in his fight against Henderson. I think Henderson should be fighting at 170lbs anyhow....and that Frankie should be at 145lbs. If I was the UFC "brass"...I would MAKE Henderson go up to 170. God, I hate weight cutting in MMA. I bet Benson walks around at 185 or so.

This is twice now they have screwed Pettis. He came in the WEC champ and never got a title shot. I would much rather see Pettis/Henderson 2 since Pettis beat him.
