Former UFC Lightweight champ Frankie Edgar tells SportsNet he thinks Welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre will have the edge against Nick Diaz at UFC 158.
"Showdown" Joe Ferraro of Canada's Sportsnet caught up with former UFC Lightweight champ Frankie Edgar and got him to go on the record with his thoughts about the UFC 158 main event between Welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz.
Here's what Frankie had to say (transcribed by MMA Mania):
"I think they both come in with strong cardio, Georges is the superior athlete. I think Nick would want to try and pressure him on his feet as much as he can, try to avoid takedowns, but I think - Georges, no one does it better than him on taking people down and he's got some of the best ground-and-pound too and you will see a lot of that utilized in this fight to get the win."
