In this short interview with Number 1. lightweight contender, Gray Maynard, the fighter talks about his upcoming fight with current lightweight belt-holder Frankie Edgar. In the video Maynard states that,“I’m going to get the belt, and I’m going to hold onto it.” The bout will be taking place on New Years Day 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This will be the second time these two have fought each other. Their first bout took place in 2008 at UFC Fight Night: Florian vs. Lauzon, where Gray Maynard successfully took down Edgar and beat him via unanimous decision. This bout is the only loss on Edgar’s otherwise flawless record.
