As expected, the four fighters who will comprise Saturday night’s UFC 144: Edgar vs. Henderson main and co-main events were featured in the most recent episode of the UFC Countdown series.
The video profiled UFC lightweight champ Frankie Edgar, who defends his title against #1 contender Benson Henderson in the featured bout of the night from Japan, as well as Quinton “Rampage” Jackson who takes on Ryan Bader in the co-headliner.
Edgar finally ended his rivalry with Gray Maynard thanks to a vicious knockout victory last year, but “Smooth” plans to present an equally-impressive challenge to “The Answer.”
“I’m a fighter. When it comes to fighting, I can fight just as hard as anybody in the world,” explained Edgar on the show. “I’m gonna go home from Japan still the champion.”
