Edgar vs Maynard Headlines UFC 125
'The Bully' and 'The Answer' agreed to meet on New Year's day, as Edgar is set to defend his belt to his number one contender. Will Maynard get his two for two, or will the belt remains to Edgar's hands?
As New Year’s Day graces the start of 2011, it will also be the day the UFC lightweight champ – Frankie Edgar – will put his belt in line as he faces Gray Maynard in the UFC 125 main event. Turning back to the old times, the fighters have met before wherein Maynard gave Edgar the sole defeat of his professional MMA career.
About two years ago when Gray “The Bully” Maynard was able to outperform Edgar and get the unanimous decision nod. This time, he aims to go for a two for two now that the lightweight belt is at stake. On Frankie “The Answer” Egdar’s part, he raked up five victories in a row since they met and has gone undefeated. Included in his five winning streak is a back-to-back gain over B.J. Penn.
The Edgar vs Maynard bout is set to headline the January 1 card, which means that Anderson Silva’s UFC middleweight title defense against Vitor Belfort will likely to take place on the annual Super Bowl weekend.View Article Source »
