UFC President Dana White breaks some big news on FUEL TV's UFC Tonight...
The highly anticipated rematch between UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and the man he beat for the belt in February, Frankie Edgar, now has a home and a date, as UFC President Dana White announced on Tuesday’s UFC Tonight that August 11th’s UFC 150 event in Denver will be headlined by this five round clash of 155-pound titans.

While fight fans were crushed by the news earlier this week that the UFC 148 rubber match between bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz and longtime rival Urijah Faber was being put on hold after Cruz tore his ACL, there is good news for both men, as White revealed that Cruz will remain in his coaching role opposite Faber on The Ultimate Fighter Live and that “The California Kid” will remain on the UFC 148 card on July 7th to fight for the interim 135-pound title against an opponent to be named.

“What’s going to happen is Urijah Faber is going to fight still,” said White. “He is going to fight on the same card. Now I’m looking for the right opponent who will fight Faber.”
