The UFC has released a new promo video for UFC 144 in Japan featuring a lightweight title fight between Frankie Edgar and Ben Henderson. The bout will be held at the Saitama Super Arena on Sunday, February 26th 10 a.m. local time but through the miracle of the international date line will air in the U.S. on pay-per-view on Saturday, February 25th at 10 p.m. ET.
There are reports that as many as 15,000 tickets have been sold for the event, which would make it a huge hit. It's also been reported that the Japanese ad agency Dentsu has booked this as a "sold show," meaning the UFC will not be shouldering the financial risk of this event.
