UFC 144: Edgar Vs. Henderson Fight Card

UFC 144: Edgar vs. Henderson on Feb. 26 promises to be one of the best cards of the year, and we're still just in February. It's the UFC's return to Japan and with it comes plenty of guys who are going to fight to their absolute maximum potential for the simple reason that they love fighting in Japan. Outside of the fact that the main event is between two guys who have been in separate fight-of-the-years, you've got a co-main event in which Quinton Jackson is set to face Ryan Bader and a seven-fight main card.

Jackson, who was born in California, loved his time fighting for PRIDE in Japan and specifically asked to be put on this card. With all of the speculation that "Rampage" doesn't put his heart into fighting anymore, this is definitely a welcome development. If fighting at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan can't get him motivated, then it's unlikely that anything can.

You've got guys like Anthony Pettis and Joe Lauzon opening up your main card, how can it not be awesome? There's fireworks all over the card, and even the certified sexiest fighter alive doing battle with Jake Shields. Let's take a look at the full fight card below:
