2011 the year where frankie edgar became my favorite fighter

i would like to strat by saying that i am french canadian so plaese go easy on me for the spelling.

so 2011 is behind us and i will remember that year for a lot of things,jon jones incredible year,shogun vs hendo,mir breaking big nog arm but the one thing that will stay with me the most is my favorite fighter change.

being from the province of quebec i had obviously a soft spot for gsp but with is string of borig fight it was harder for me to still defend him.

then on jan 1 2011 the first ppv of the year a small guy from tom rivers changed everything for me.Dont get me wrong i always liked frankie i loved hoe he defeated bj(cry baby)penn,but is 2 fight with gray was just amazing.obviously the draw left a bitter tatse in my mouth because i taught that he had done enough to earn the victory.

fast forward to ufc 136 already pretty exiting after seeing chael sonnen dominate briann stann i was ready for the 3 fight between those 2 warrior. then halfway thru the first the same thing happened but frankie showed the world that its not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog.he came back and put a exclamation point by putting gray away int the 4 round.

Now ufc 144 is one day away and im getting the same chill i use to have before gsp was set to fight bj for the rematch.i just hope that frankie keeps on going 110%like he always does and i know that even if he loses his gonna go out on is shield because that's who he is.
