UFC 125 Fight Card: Frankie Edgar vs Gray Maynard Primer

Edgar_maynard_mediumUFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar (13-1, 8-1 UFC)  will make his second title defense against rival Gray Maynard (10-0-0-1, 8-0-0-1 UFC) at UFC 125 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada in a few hours. 

Maynard gave Edgar his only loss in April of 2008 at UFC Fight Night 13. He used superior wrestling and his size and power advantage to put Edgar on the ground and control the fight positionally. 

Since that fight Edgar has reeled off five straight wins, including two back-to-back defeats of former champion B.J. Penn at UFC 112 and UFC 118. Many felt Edgar had benefited from a questionable decision in the first Penn fight so the ex-champ was given an immediate rematch. Edgar left no doubt in the rematch, dominating Penn for all five rounds.

Edgar remains underrated by many fans and oddsmakers who are favoring Maynard to win the fight.
