Maynard willing to drop to 145 to fight Edgar again


Gray Maynard has a tough test in front of him this weekend in a rematch with Nate Diaz, but hoping to get past that fight, 'The Bully' knows what he wants next, even if it means a drop to the featherweight division:

As UFC lightweight Gray Maynard prepares to complete the second trilogy series of his career, you might think more rematches are the last thing on his mind. But “The Bully” insists it’s quite the opposite.

Maynard is so passionate that the 155-pounder is willing to drop down a division to settle a score.

“I’ve got to take care of Nate Diaz, but the goal is obviously to get the T.J. Grant bout again, the Frankie Edgar bout, and then get the lightweight belt,” Maynard tells USA TODAY Sports and MMAjunkie. “Even if I have to drop down a division to face Edgar.”

In the record books, Maynard has lost two fights to Frankie Edgar, but believing he won the first fight, Maynard seems in breaking the tie in a trilogy fight.

Why would they fight a Fourth time? Good lord maybe Frankie should just give rematches to everyone he beat. That way he can get rematches with everyone who beat him.

Is that really from the article? If so, huge fucking lawl. Maynard has lost to Edgar only one time and Maynard DID win the first fight.
