The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Japan for UFC 144, and the high-stakes battles on tap translate into excitement in any language. In the main event, UFC lightweight champion Frankie "The Answer" Edgar, fresh from his stirring knockout of Gray Maynard, defends his title for the fourth time against former WEC champ Ben "Smooth" Henderson, who is coming off a big win of his own over Clay Guida. Plus, former PRIDE standout Quinton "Rampage" Jackson returns to the site of some of his greatest victories when he takes on Ryan Bader, and Japanese superstar Yoshihiro Akiyama makes his welterweight debut against submission specialist Jake Shields.
