UFC Poster 144 Japan Edgar Henderson Ramapge

Although Japanese mixed martial arts is going through a bit of a rough patch, the promotions in the Orient typically produce more aesthetically appealing event posters than those generated in North America.

With the UFC set to make their highly-anticipated return to Japan on February 26th, the Octagon’s graphics department decided to step their game up and create an artsy masterpiece of a billboard for UFC 144.

The show features a lightweight title tilt between champion Frankie Edgar and Benson Henderson. Light heavyweights Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Ryan Bader will serve as the night’s co-main event.

The Saitama Super Arena in Saitama hosts the festivities.

The pay-per-view broadcast airs live in the US at 10PM ET/7PM PT.
