When the UFC returns to Japan at the Saitama Super Arena on Feb. 25, 2012, the lightweight title will be on the line after Ben Henderson earned a shot at the championship with his victory over Clay Guida Saturday night during UFC on Fox 1.
It had been suspected that the winner of the lightweight match up would get the next shot and UFC match maker Joe Silva confirmed it during the post fight wrap up show on Fuel TV.
Henderson will face reigning Champion Frankie Edgar who last fought in October, beating Gray Maynard via fourth round TKO.
