The UFC’s return trip to Japan has come and gone. For the first time ever the UFC put on a four-hour pay-per-view event featuring seven main card fights.
In the main event it was Ben Henderson who proved to be the better man and secured championship gold around his waist. The main event went the distance but it was the former champion, Frankie Edgar who looked severely damaged after his 25-minutes in the cage with the new champion Benson Henderson.
For their parts in the evenings event Frankie Edgar and Benson Henderson took home “Fight of the Night” honors, Anthony Pettis took home “Knockout of the Night” honors and Vaughan Lee took home “Submission of the Night.”
The UFC gave away $65,000 for these bonuses.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc 144, ufc news
