Gray Maynard shocked he didn’t win Edgar fight

Following the UFC 125 draw in the main event between Gray Maynard vs Frankie Edgar, Edgar speaks out on his thoughts on the decision.

“I thought it was mine,” said Maynard. “I thought I had the belt.”

“I was swinging for the fences. That’s like a sprint. I had to pull back. I felt a little tired, and I had to ease back a little bit. I got going again in round three. I was trying to knock him out that whole round. That’s a lot of work to do. He’s a tough kid. Hat’s off to him, but I thought that was my fight.”

“You’ve got the round where it could have been 10-7, I thought. I dropped him like five times. He didn’t land a punch. At least a 10-8, maybe even more.”

“It could have been easily stopped.”

“I thought I won the third, for sure. The last round, we landed about even. I was going hard in the last, and I thought he backed up a lot. I shot, shot, shot.”

“It’s not about the money. I’ve been doing this since I was 3. It’s about being on top.”
