The Ultimate Fighting Championship presented UFC 150: Henderson vs Edgar 2 on Saturday, August 11, 2012, at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
In the main event, UFC Lightweight Champion Ben "Smooth" Henderson scored a sure-to-be-debated split decision victory in a rematch with former 155-pound champ Frankie "The Answer" Edgar. The non-partisan Denver crowd vociferously objected to the decision, unsettling the usually cool-as-a-cucumber Henderson during his post-fight interview. The crowd then cheered Edgar as he spoke after Henderson. Robbery or not, with back-to-back losses to Henderson, Edgar is not going to be getting another immediate rematch. Instead, Henderson will move on to fight new lightweight number one contender Nate Diaz.
