“Japan is the spiritual home of martial arts; the world has learned from the Japanese many aspects of how to compete in hand-to-hand combat with respect and honor. But Japan also has a proud history of modern mixed martial arts, and I am excited to bring the Ultimate Fighting Championship back here and to begin the build-up today to one of the most highly anticipated events of the year,” stated UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta at today’s press conference.
“UFC 144: Japan” is set to go down on February 26 live from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. As of current date, the event is expected to be headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Frankie Edgar and challenger Benson Henderson.
