UFC Fight Night 22 Prelim Preview: Yves Edwards vs. John Gunderson

Both fighters talk to mmajunkie.com:
"It definitely feels good to be back. I really, really want to make the most of it."

"I know (John Gunderson) is tough and he's going to bring it. So it should be very entertaining."

"I'm not a jiu-jitsu guy. But fighting tough guys all the time, and with my style, I'm always a contender for any one of those bonuses."
"(Yves Edwards) was somebody I looked up to when I was watching the UFC. He was basically the uncrowned champ of the UFC for a while. I highly respect Yves."

"He's is going to have to stop me from submitting him. I don't care how good he is on the ground, or how long he's been fighting. I don't care. He's got 15 minutes not to screw up. We'll see if he can take that pressure, and he's going to be on his back. If he makes a mistake, I will catch him."
