UFC 144 takes place Saturday night and the main card will air live on PPV at 10PM ET. The event takes place from the Saitama Super Arena in Tokyo, Japan. The main event is a battle for the UFC Lightweight Championship as Frankie Edgar (14-1-1) defends his championship against Ben Henderson (15-2)

According to the oddsmakers, Edgar is a slim favorite to win this contest, as he has a money line of -130 to top Henderson. Henderson comes into the fight with an even betting line of +100. In Friday’s weigh-ins, both fighters tipped the scales at 154 pounds. Henderson is accustomed to championship bouts, as he was the 155-pound champion in the WEC. Edgar is a smaller fighter, but he has climbed the UFC mountain and has proven to be a difficult man to beat.

In the co-main event, light heavyweights Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (32-9) and Ryan Bader (13-2) will face off. Jackson, the former UFC champion, is the favorite, as he has a money line of -245 while Bader comes in with odds of +195 to win. Jackson spent most of his young career in Japan fighting for PRIDE, while Bader is stepping out of his comfort zone and looking to get the biggest win of his career. At the weigh-ins, Jackson failed to make weight, coming in at 211 pounds while Bader weighed in at 205. Jackson will lose 20 percent of his fight purse.
