UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will attempt to prove the doubters wrong once again when he takes on the only man to have defeated him so far in his career, Gray Maynard, this New Year’s Day in the main event of UFC 125.
Maynard defeated Edgar by unanimous decision back in 2008 and since then, “The Answer” has notched wins over Hermes Franca, Sean Sherk, Matt Veach, BJ Penn (twice) en route to earning the UFC lightweight championship. The Tom’s River, New Jersey native was the underdog in both bouts against Penn and proved both times that he is not a fighter who should be taken lightly. He will likely go into the bout with Maynard as an underdog yet again, but he has also proven that he can flourish in that position and that he will not be overwhelmed by an opponent’s reputation or previous accomplishments.
