Edgar looking to reclaim title belt from Henderson
Friday, August 10, 2012
DENVER (AP) -- Still smarting over his UFC title bout loss to Benson Henderson in a close but unanimous decision, Frankie Edgar has prepared furiously for Saturday's rematch at the Pepsi Center and the chance to reclaim the lightweight championship belt that he still considers rightfully his.
Henderson meets Edgar again in his first defense of his UFC lightweight title in the five-round featured match on Saturday night's card.
Edgar made three successful defenses of the championship belt he had earned two years ago before his Feb. 26 loss to Henderson.
Both fighters have spent the past several weeks training in the Denver area to get used to the city's mile-high elevation.
