Henderson vs. Edgar: 5 Fights for Frankie Edgar to Take Next

Frankie Edgar's rise to stardom started when he knocked off B.J. Penn to become the UFC lightweight champion. He then continued his rise as the top UFC lightweight by defeating Penn for a second time, followed by back-to-back fights with Gray Maynard.
