UFC 130: Could this be History in the Making?

By: Matthew Pearlman

On May 28, 2011, Gray Maynard will try to win the UFC Lightweight Championship against Frankie Edgar at UFC 130: Edgar vs. Maynard 3.

 

Gray  “The Bully” Maynard has a perfect record of 10-0-1 (1).  Frankie (The Answer) Edgar has a record of 13-1-1 and is the current UFC lightweight Champion.  Edgar’s only loss was from Gray Maynard in 2008 at UFC Fight Night (Florian V.S. Lauzon) by Decision (30-27) in each round.  On January 1, 2011, Maynard and Edgar fought a second time and they fought to a split decision draw. 

 

Maynard has notable wins over Kenny Florian, Dennis Siver, Frankie Edgar, and Jim Miller.  Frankie Edgar has notable wins over BJ Penn twice, Sean Sherk, Tyson Griffin, Jim Miller, and Spencer Fisher. 

 

My prediction is that Gray Maynard will win by split decision.
