Edgar Not Moving To 145 | “I’m Saying It Loud, I Want My Rematch”
“I’m saying it, and I’m saying it loud: I want my rematch. 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… I think the rematch makes sense on several levels. 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… I’m staying at 155. This is where I’m at right now. I still feel like I got a run left. I still want that title back… That [rematch] is what I want. I think it’s right. I think I earned it. I’m not trying to put down Ben or any other contender, but I think I earned my spot to deserve this rematch.”
Former UFC lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar took too Ariel Helwani’s “The MMA Hour” on mmafighting.com to discuss what’s next, what he wants and why he thinks he deserves it.
It’s the rematch with Benson Henderson that’s on his mind and all the talks of moving divisions or fighting someone else don’t concern the former champ.
