I live-blogged the [sarcasm font]wildly exciting[/sarcasm font] UFC 144 conference call this afternoon, and whilst I'm not exactly a fast enough typist to get everything down, I think I got a pretty good summation of each question that us various reporters and bloggers had to ask.
Taking the intro from my SBN cohort over at Mania, Brian Hemminger:
Ultimate Fighting Championship will today (Feb. 14, 2012) hold a media conference call to promote next Saturday's (Feb. 25, 2012) UFC 144: "Edgar vs. Henderson" pay-per-view (PPV) event.
The conference call will begin at 1 p.m. ET. Scheduled to attend will be the main and co-main event fighters of the evening: Frankie Edgar, Ben Henderson, Quinton Jackson and Ryan Bader.
Edgar is the current UFC lightweight champion, having twice defeated B.J. Penn in 2010 to win and defend the belt. He showcased his pure heart in coming back twice in consecutive fights against Gray Maynard last year earning a draw and closing out the trilogy with a fourth round knockout to make a statement.
His challenger, Henderson, is the former WEC lightweight champion. He's been on a torrid run in the UFC thus far, defeating the likes of Mark Bocek and then knocking off top contenders Jim Miller and Clay Guida to earn his shot at UFC gold.

Personally, I think the highlight was Rampage's rather innocent soundbite stating that blacks all look alike to the Japanese and how no one recognizes him without his chains.
