Reigning champion Frankie Edgar will be making his fourth defense of the lightweight title, this time against Ben Henderson.
Jackson vs. Bader
Quinton Jackson has already said of his match with Ryan Bader that he'll try to "knock his head off," so look for this to be an entertaining match.

Veterans Cheick Kongo and Mark Hunt will face off against each other in this heavyweight bout. They're both coming off wins in previous events.
Shields vs. Akiyama
Jake Shields and Yoshihiro Akiyama will look to break losing streaks in this welterweight bout. Shields is coming off a defeat to Jake Ellenberger, while Akiyama lost to Vitor Belfort.
Pettis vs. Lauzon
Anthony Pettis and Joe Lauzon both won at UFC 136, but only one of them can come away victorious when they face off on Sunday.
Jon Jones and Quinton Jackson are set to square off at UFC 135, and their matchup promises to be exciting in the most devastating way possible. Both men are formidable strikers, with Jones in the process of establishing his reputation as a man whose elbows could knock down trees. Jackson didn't acquire the nickname "Rampage" by accident -- a cursory viewing of his signature body slam is enough to cause one's knees to tremble. Are they evenly matched, or will one of the other fights be more close-fought?
Which will be the best fight?
Jon Jones and Quinton Jackson could put on a show, but on a card that includes Mark Hunt, Josh Koschek and Matt Hughes, Jones-Jackson could play second fiddle to a great early fight.
