What is it about former UFC lightweight champ and now top featherweight contender Frankie Edgar that makes him such a badass in the cage? The list of contributing factors is a long one, but right up there near the top is his ability to take almost everyone down regardless of how well they sprawl and protect their hips.
Really, the dude is a walking-and-talking clinic on shot penetration and turning corners – two things that separate his wrestling ability from the rest of the pack. Don’t believe me? Then take a look back at how easily other fighters took Cub Swanson down, and compare that with Edgar’s performance on Saturday night.
Yeah, if Edgar wants you horizontal, you’re pretty much going there.
Here, then, is a video compilation of his takedowns. Watch and enjoy.
