The rematch between UFC Lightweight champion Benson Henderson (16-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC) and the unrelenting Frankie Edgar (14-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) is one big step closer to happening.

Both parties have verbally agreed the bout which is pencilled in to take place at UFC 150 from the Pepsi Centre in Denver, Colorado on August 11th.

Frankie Edgar lost the belt to Henderson via unanimous decision at UFC 144 in Japan this February but, before then, had defeated B.J. Penn twice and Gray Maynard once after their first bout at UFC 125 was a draw.

Benson Henderson has been flawless since joining the UFC following the WEC merger and has racked up four straight decision victories in defeating Mark Bocek, Jim Miller, Clay Guida and Frankie Edgar to claim the title.

UFC 150 will also feature Luis Cane’s debut at middleweight as he meets title contender Yushin Okami and a lightweight bout between Thiago Tavares and Dennis Hallman.
