Frankie Edgar vs Ben Henderson rematch confirmed

Frankie Edgar has announced on twitter that he has been granted a rematch with Ben Henderson. He posted saying

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

UFC President Dana White later confirmed the rematch, also on twitter.

“Frankie Edgar and Ben Henderson rematch will be this summer” @danawhite

Dana had originally hinted that Anthony Pettis would be the one getting a rematch with Henderson, after he impressively knocked out Joe Lauzon on the same card.

But as Edgar said in the post fight press conference, he gave BJ Penn and Gray Maynard immediate rematches after beating them, so fair is fair.
