 At UFC 162, Frankie Edgar finds himself in some unfamiliar territory: a three round fight. Edgar hasn't fought a three round since 2009, having been involved only in title fights. Edgar spoke to UFC.com about the fight and the interview was transcribed by MMAWeekly.com:

“It’s a blessing in disguise, I feel like, coming back to a three-round fight.  It’s going to make me get out of the gun early and make sure, first round, I’m in his face and I’m in the rhythm that I like to be in fourth and fifth (round),” Edgar told UFC.com.

Oliveira (16-3, 1 no contest) has logged submissions in all four of his UFC fights, earning Submission of the Night honors twice.

“He’s tough.  He’s dangerous.  Probably the tallest guy I may have ever fought.  He’s got pretty good Muay Thai.  He mixes it up well with kicks, knees, elbows.  He’s got a slick submission game. He’s willing to go from broke to go for submissions,” said Edgar about his opponent.

Translation: I'm gonna learn how to win the early rounds better so I can better use my pointfighting to win more decisions.

Really lookin forward to this fight.

Though I think Oliveira should be protected a bit and is in over his head.

Oliveira will at least make it exciting and push Edgar before I expect Edgar to be too much

He's fought 8 times, good reporting

Live by the point, die by the point

Frankie better finish... the only way people will want to see him in another title fight is if he starts finishing some guys.
