Frankie Edgar (14-3-1) could be called somewhat of a rematch specialist. Between 2010 and 2012, Edgar fought the same three fighters twice. He defeated B.J. Penn (16-9-2) twice, fought Gray Maynard (11-1-1-1 NC) to a draw then followed it with a victory and lost to Benson Henderson (18-2) on two occasions this year.
When it comes to the heavyweight title rematch between Cain Velasquez (10-1) and Junior dos Santos (15-1) this Saturday at UFC 155, the former lightweight champion wasn’t willing to give a decisive answer on who takes the win. The one thing Edgar believes is that it’ll be a much different fight from the first time.
“I think it will be a struggle, completely different from the first,” said Edgar to TATAME. “Junior has a super heavy hand and I always see him as the favorite for the fight, but Cain is one of the most talented heavyweights in the UFC today and is a very complete fighter. I do not know who will win.”
Edgar returns to action in 2013 at UFC 156 when he challenges José Aldo (21-1) for the UFC featherweight championship.
