UFC 125: Pros Pick Maynard in Lightweight Championship
UFC 125 is just hours away, and according to fighters.com, pros interviewed feel Gray Maynard has what it takes to de-throne Frankie Edgar in tonight's Lightweight Championship.
Maynard is the only fighter to have ever defeated Edgar, and Edgar followed up his defeat with five straight wins.
Quotes from Javier Vazquez and other peers say Maynard's flashy style are what the UFC and MMA needs to continue drawing in fans. Meanwhile, they also mention that Edgar's footwork will have to be superb to avoid the embarrassment he suffered at the hands of Maynard the first time around.
For Edgar, that's exactly what he wants to hear. Edgar is known for his swift feet, reserved patience, and timely attacks. His balance is considered one of his biggest strengths, but Maynard knows this and expects to put up a similar performance, and claim the Lightweight title as his own.
The bout is scheduled for 10:00 pm ET tonight, from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
