Eight rounds have not been enough for UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and number one contender Gray Maynard. On Memorial Day weekend, they will get five more to prove to the world who the top 155-pound fighter in the world truly is, as they meet for the third time in the main event of UFC 130: Edgar vs. Maynard III, live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, May 28, 2011.
In preparation of the event, Spike TV will premiere the “Countdown To UFC 130″ special just days before, on Wednesday, May 25 at 11 pm ET.
