On Tuesday, UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar will join UFC president Dana White for a press conference to kick off ticket sales for UFC 150, which will be headlined by a rematch between the two aforementioned fighters for the 155-pound title.
The lightweight headliners first met in February, when Henderson was able to dethrone Edgar in a narrow decision. After having to defend his title in immediate rematches against B.J. Penn and Gray Maynard, Edgar was awarded the chance to reclaim his title in an immediate rematch as a contender.
In addition to the 155-pound championship bout, UFC 150 will feature Jake Shields' return to the middleweight division for a fight against Ed Herman. Luiz Cane will also make a move to 185 pounds for a meeting with former top contender Yushin Okami.
Conditioning will be at a premium for all fighters who compete at this event, which will be held at high altitude in Denver's Pepsi Center in August. The UFC last visited Denver in September for UFC 135, where multiple heavyweights had major problems maintaining their pace in the later rounds.
The UFC 150 tickets-on-sale press conference will take place at 1 p.m. ET in Denver. A live stream of the press conference will be provided on the above video player. Following the press conference, stay tuned to Bleacher Report for more news on UFC 150 and the rest of your MMA needs.
