Gray Maynard: The Hardest Hitter At 155

“I think Grant really believes he has good stand-up. He’s good on the ground, but he likes to stand and strike. He believes in that aspect of his game and that’s okay. Training at AKA has added a few more tools to my game, but I truly believe I’m one of the hardest hitters — if not the hardest — in the lightweight division. I like to go everywhere in a fight, but if he wants to scrap it out on the feet, I don’t have a problem with that. I’m hungry, man. It’s been a long layoff. These past two years have been off and on, but I have been traveling and in the gym learning new things. I’m coming back hungry to get back to the top of this division and go after that title. Grant is a tough opponent and I’m training hard for him. I’m hungry and people are going to see that next month in Las Vegas.”

In a recent interview with The Bleacher Report, former two-time title challenger, Gray Maynard proclaims himself, the hardest hitter in the lightweight division.

Is he right?

    It’s time for the Bully to come take this division over. Bendo can’t beat him. Pettis can’t beat him. Thomson can’t beat him.

        Edgar was gifted the first win. No way a draw. Maynard won that fight hands down. Edgar did outlast a second beating and tko’d him with an early stoppage. So not really a dominant win. would you agree? Typical tough Edgar win being gifted victories.

          maynard beat frankie the first time, then they had a draw, and then frankie knocked out maynard. how was edgar “gifted” a win?

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          ^^^^Talking about the championship fights. The first one was a draw, BULLSHIT. Maynard beat the fuck out of him. 10-7 No way a draw. Second one, once again Maynard beats the shit outta him early and Edgar was given an early stoppage for the tko. No way Maynard was finished there. It should not have been stopped. Therefore, gifted to him.

          Are you crazy? Maynard was laid out from those shots by Frankie. I’m not a huge Edgar fan, but that fight was not stopped too early.

    Hardest hitter? Maynard only has 2 KO wins in his career which either werent in the ufc!

    Maynard’s mutant but I don’t think he’s creative enough to take the 55 title. There’s so many complex fighters in the mix he’s a bull in a group of matadors. As far as how hard he hits
    I’ll bet its hard as hell but Frankie took it and then knocked his ass out. Does it matter if your the hardest hitter if you can’t take a shot?
