UFC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson is ready to take on former champion Frankie Edgar again at UFC 150 in Denver, Colo., on Aug. 11, 2012 after beating Edgar in a five-round decision when they last faced at UFC 144 in Saitama, Japan, on Feb. 26, 2012.

“How tough of a situation is this because basically you have to beat Frankie Edgar 2x to capture his belt?”  asks Ron Kruck, Inside MMA

Ben Henderson:

“I don’t think it would be too difficult.  I had a pretty fun time the 1st time we danced.  I anticipate having a fun time also again the 2nd time we dance.  Frankie has a good record in his rematches.  My record in rematches are pretty good also – if they know that as well – I’m not too shabby in rematches….”

Kruck asked, “Let’s say that you lose to Edgar but you put on a great show.  Do you then deserve a rematch?”

Ben Henderson:

 “I’m not one of those guys to proclaim ‘Hey, I want this or I want that’ I don’t want to be one of those prima donna wide receivers.  I’m the guy that goes out there and gets the job done.  Doesn’t complain and does his work.  I want to be like a Jerry Rice or a Larry Fitzgerald.  I don’t want to be the prima donna wide receiver always complaining and moaning ‘I need this or I need that.  I’m not gonna sign a contract until I get this.’  I just want to be one of those good guys that goes out there and gets the job done.”

Top contenders like Nate Diaz and Anthony Pettis  will be watching to see who will come out on top.
