On April 10th, the UFC will travel to Abu Dhabi for UFC 112. The fight card is already scheduled to hold a title fight as the main event — Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort for the 185 lb. title — but it appears as if a second title fight will be added to the card.

UFC president Dana White has announced today that Frankie Edgar (11-1) is the No. 1 contender and he will get the next crack at B.J. Penn’s lightweight title.
