UFC 144: Edgar vs. Henderson Japanese Edition Poster - Snapshot of the Day

via img828.imageshack.us

UFC will be heading to Japan this February, and it will be headlined by a lightweight title bout between Frankie Edgar and Ben Henderson. Check out this awesome looking Japanese edition of their poster for the event, which also features main card fighters, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Jake Shields, Quinton Jackson, and Ryan Bader.

It is interesting to note that the UFC took the non-spectacle or freakshow approach as they built up the fight card, and Wanderlei Silva won't be on it as well. That being said, it's still a very good card that includes 7 Japanese fighters, along with a few PRIDE veterans. Check it out after the jump.
