Ben Henderson Vs. Frankie Edgar 2 Likely In September, Not At UFC 150

I've got some bad news for Colorado MMA fans. You know that card you're hosting in Denver on August 11th? I believe it's called UFC 150? You thought you were going to have a UFC lightweight title rematch between Ben Henderson and Frankie Edgar on top of the card, but that is looking very unlikely now. Former champion Edgar was in attendance at UFC on Fox 3 and spoke to MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani about his upcoming bout. It turns out that an injury will likely delay the bout until September. Here's the video. You can catch the quotes and a bit of analysis after the jump.

I don't have a definite date, but I think it's gonna be more like September than it is August.

...

Yeah, you know, I had some issues with my nose. My nose obviously breaks pretty frequently, at least for the last couple of fights, so I just need some time to let it heal properly so I can get back to sparring.

He followed that up by making a statement directly to Henderson (who was in the studio watching) that they'd meet "in September". So if the fight does take place in September, where will it be? The UFC has tentatively scheduled a card for September 1st, which would be UFC 151, and UFC 152 is in Toronto on September 22nd. As stated earlier, UFC 151 is the likely destination for the UFC light heavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Dan Henderson, so UFC 152 seems like the more logical place for it.
