Edgar vs. Maynard added to Fight Night 13

According to, Frankie Edgar has been added to what may arguably be the best UFC Fight Night card in recent memory. While it was at first rumored that he might face Takanori Gomi, who was in negotiations with the UFC earlier this month but has since signed with the new MMA promotion World Victory Road, it seems that he’ll now face another of the UFC’s rising stars in Gray Maynard.

Coming off of a dominant Unanimous Decision win over veteran fighter Spencer Fisher, Edgar seems poised to make a serious run for the title in 2008. He’ll face a tough competitor in Gray Maynard however. Maynard, fresh from a Unanimous Decision over Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 12, has won four of his five bouts and is on a roll himself. Known for his strong wrestling, the Xtreme Couture trained fighter seems like a perfect match up for the explosive and energetic Edgar.

As of now, here is the rumored card :

Kenny Florian vs. Joe Lauzon
Karo Parisyan vs. Thiago Alves
Matt Hamill vs. Stephan Bonnar
Houston Alexander vs. James Irvin
Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard
Clay Guida vs. Samy Schiavo
Spencer Fisher vs. Marcus Aurelio
Din Thomas vs. Josh Neer
Clay Guida vs. Samy Schiavo
Tommy Speer vs. Anthony Johnson
