According to sources confirmed by MMAjunkie.com, the winner of Saturday night’s UFC on FOX 1: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos co-main event between Clay Guida and Ben Henderson is likely to challenge UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar. The bout is expected to happen in February when the UFC returns to Japan.
Guida-Henderson will be the main fight on the Facebook and FOXSports.com streams, as the hour-long FOX show is expected to only showcase the UFC heavyweight championship match between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos.
Edgar (14-1-1) defended his title in October with a victory over Gray Maynard. The UFC Japan show will be February 26 from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
