Henderson, Edgar Slated for Summer Rematch

UFC President Dana White did more than lead the UFC on FOX 3 press conference at Radio City Music Hall in New York City Tuesday. He also took care of some business with former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, and as far as fight fans are concerned, the news was good.

"Rematch anyone??.......it's on!! Thanks to @danawhite @lorenzofertitta. Me and Henderson 2. Here we go!!" tweeted Edgar, letting the news out that he and the man who defeated him for the 155-pound strap, Benson Henderson, will meet again to revisit their action-packed battle from UFC 144 last month.

White later tweeted that the rematch is expected to take place this summer.

Henderson's social network response was short and sweet: #SustainedExplosion!!!
