Ben Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar 2 Is Happening Sometime This Summer (Update)

Well that was quick.

Only hours after Dana White told Ariel Helwani this afternoon that he had no idea what was going on with the next UFC lightweight title shot yet comes word from Frankie Edgar that the UFC has granted him his immediate rematch against Ben Henderson.

Rematch anyone??…….it’s on!! Thanks to @danawhite @lorenzofertitta. Me and Henderson 2. Here we go!!

Dana White then announced moments later that the rematch would happen sometime this summer.

It’s unclear where the news leaves Anthony Pettis in the title picture, especially since Dana confirmed today that the Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller winner would get a title shot, but clearly he’s going to have to fight at least once more before getting his chance.


Update: Frankie Edgar talks to MMA Weekly about getting the rematch with Bendo.
