For a city steeped in sports history, finally Boston will get to witness world-class mixed martial arts in its own backyard.
After a back-and-forth instant classic at UFC® 112 in April, which saw Frankie Edgar shock the mixed martial arts world and take the UFC lightweight strap from around BJ Penn’s waist, the two will square off again on Saturday, August 28 at UFC 118: EDGAR VS. PENN 2, which is live from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts and presented by TapouT®.
Also on this card, Randy Couture takes on boxing legend James Toney as Toney makes his mixed martial arts debut. Plus Rousimar Palhares takes on Nate Marquardt, and Gray Maynard and Kenny Florian battle for the next top lightweight contender spot.

Randy Couture vs. James Toney
Frankie Edgar vs. B.J. Penn
The announced fights are going to be huge! Kenny and Maynard is going to determine the next title contender. We will get a chance to see if Maynard is ready to take on the champion or if Kenny has improved enough to a solid claim for what would be his third run at the title. Randy Couture and James Toney has captured the imaginations of everyone ready to see what happens when ranked boxer steps inside the cage against a legend at the sport. Finally, will BJ set things right with his rematch with Frankie Edgar, or will Frankie show that he truly is the number 1 fighter in the world?
The rumored fights are going to be great if they happen. I'm particularly looking forward to Joe Lauzon vs Terry Etim. Both are underrated LWs. JL has nasty GnP, but Etim has great Muay Thai. Marquadrt vs Paul Harris is going to have serious title implications and Marcus Davis vs Nate Diaz could turn out to be a savage stand up war.
Best of all, its going to be the UFC's historic first event in Boston! The North East has been STARVING for MMA and this is Thanksgiving Dinner! I can't wait to attend this event live!
This is looking to be hands down one of the biggest events in MMA history!
