Frankie Edgar Expected to Face Winner of Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida in Japan

UFC lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar will likely return to the octagon when the promotion returns to Japan on February 25th, 2012 and will take on the winner of this weekends co-main event bout between Benson Henderson and Clay Guida in main event of the evening.

The news was confirmed by a source close to the situation, although much will depend on the physical condition of the winner from Saturday nights UFC on FOX battle.

Edgar finally put behind him back-to-back rematches with first BJ Penn and then Gray Maynard by emerging with an impressive 3-0-1 record. He was last in action at UFC 136 in October when he stopped Maynard via fourth round TKO.
