The spearhead of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's first trip to Massachusetts is rapidly taking shape.

A rematch between newly minted lightweight champion Frankie Edgar (12-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) and the man he recently unseated, former champion B.J. Penn (15-6-1 MMA, 11-6-1 UFC), in under heavy consideration for the top spot.

Additionally, a No. 1 contender's match-up between top contenders Kenny Florian (13-4 MMA, 11-3 UFC) and Gray Maynard (9-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) is expected to serve as the co-main event.

A few factors could change things, but this would be some killer LW action on one card

Rather it be on July on the Lesnar card. Sooner the better.

Seems alright by me.

BJ .vs. KenFlo 2 or KenFlo .vs. Edgar are decent fights. (Notice how I didn't mention Maynard because we all know he's going to lose).
