It hasn’t even been a week since Frankie Edgar lost his lightweight title to Ben Henderson in what some would was a controversial decision and Frankie is ready for round two. Many, including UFC President Dana White have stated that they feel it would be best for Frankie to move down in weight and face current 145lbs. champ Jose Aldo. Unfortunately, Edgar has already made up his mind; he’s staying at lightweight and wants a rematch with Ben Henderson.
I’m saying it, and I’m saying it loud: I want my rematch,” he said. “I’m not going to have these antics or play these games. I’m telling you want I want. This is what I want. I think it’s fair. I think the fans want to see it. It was fight of the night. Listen, even if these guys want to see me get beat up, I do get beat up in a lot of my fights, even in the fights I win, so it’s win-win for everybody.”
Although Dana White has pretty much confirmed that Anthony Pettis would fight Henderson next, due to his impressive K.O. win over Joe Lauzon, Edgar still thinks his rematch would make more sense.
“I think the rematch makes sense on several levels,” he said. “Not only can UFC be good guys, I think I earned it. Economically, they’ve been investing money in me. I’ve been at the helm of this weight class for two years now. I think it just makes sense for them and obviously for me. Let’s do it.”
