There are a number of intriguing matchups featured at UFC 118 which takes place this weekend in Boston. The Ultimate Fighting Championship comes to the Hub City with a stacked card.
At the top of the UFC 118 card, BJ Penn looks to re-capture the lightweight championship from Frankie Edgar. Edgar upset Penn for the belt at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi this past April.
The Penn/Edgar matchup may not even be the most popular fight of the evening. Legendary fan favorite Randy Couture takes on veteran boxer James Toney in a heavyweight matchup. Toney is the current IBA heavyweight boxing champion. He is the most famous boxer ever to make the switch to Mixed Martial Arts.
