The UFC made their return to the Land of the Rising Sun as a new lightweight champion was crowned.

Benson Henderson now holds the title and could find himself in a familiar situation as Anthony Pettis was also spectacular in his UFC 144 victory.

Dana White believes that Henderson vs. Pettis 2 is what’s next for the 155-pound division, but former champ Frankie Edgar feels he deserves an immediate rematch.
