Well, that got turned around pretty fast. A few days ago Frankie Edgar said his rematch against Ben Henderson for the UFC lightweight title wouldn't be taking place at UFC 150 on August 11th due to a nose issue. It seems that is not the case though, because UFC president Dana White confirmed last night on UFC Tonight that the fight will take place at - you guessed it, UFC 150:
"Benson and Edgar will fight August 11th."
Maybe Dana laid down the law and told Edgar that he asked for the rematch and got it, and now he was going to fight where the UFC decided the bout should take place? Just a guess. Anyway here's the video of White's announcement, and you can catch the current UFC 150 lineup after the jump.
