Yves Edwards: It's going to be some major explosive s---

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com
 

The fictitious (and vicious) style of thugjitsu has taken lightweight Yves Edwards years to perfect, and the work is not yet over. He turns 35 this year and still has plenty of fight left in him.

Edwards wants to feel the feeling of a UFC belt wrapped around his waist. So, too, do the legions of young fighters getting into the sport, including 27 year old Sam Stout, whi Edwards faces on the Spike TV-televised preliminary card of UFC 131.

"I'm trying to do everything right, and I think I've got things on the right track getting with some good guys, gaining skills and focused on getting better at this fight game. I want to leave something behind."

"Sam's tough, but you know me. I like to move like a ninja, so I stay quiet and do my thing. I'm going to do the same thing on Saturday night. I'm going to out there and just bring the thugjitsu to the cage. It's not going to be easy by any means, but I feel confident about the fight."

"He's a really technical striker, and I think I'm the same. There's going to be a lot of good footwork, a lot of angles. I think this is going to be really exciting. It's going to be some major explosive s---."
