Where to Watch Frankie Edgar at UFC 150 in Toms River
Tonight, the Jersey Shore’s own Frankie Edgar looks to regain his Ultimate Fighting Championship Lightweight Title in a rematch with Benson Henderson at UFC 150 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
In April, he lost his belt to Henderson in a controversial decision. Though the judges called the fight for Henderson unanimously, many members of the media and fans saw Edgar as the victor. Tonight’s main event bout – one of ten scheduled fights – will give him a chance for redemption.
Thousands will watch the action live in the arena, while millions will watch from home on pay-per-view, but what better way to see the local legend fight than in his hometown of Toms River surrounded by local supporters?

Before reaching the pinnacle of the UFC, Edgar was a standout wrestler at Toms River High School East, competing in the NJSIAA State Tournament three times, taking second place in his junior year and fifth as a senior. From there, he moved on to Clarion University where he became a four-year national qualifier. When he’s not training for his next fight in the octagon, Edgar is a wrestling coach at Rutgers University.
A tenacious fighter known for his tough chin, Edgar made his name in professional fighting by out-willing and out-lasting opponents despite frequently finding himself undersized in the lightweight (155 pound) division.
Edgar ended a storied trilogy of fights with rival Gray Maynard in October with an amazing comeback and highlight reel knockout.
