UFC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson is ready to take on former champion Frankie Edgar again at UFC 150 in Denver, Colo., on Aug. 11, 2012 after beating Edgar in a five-round decision when they last faced at UFC 144 in Saitama, Japan, on Feb. 26, 2012.
“How tough of a situation is this because basically you have to beat Frankie Edgar 2x to capture his belt?” asks Ron Kruck, Inside MMA
“I don’t think it would be too difficult. I had a pretty fun time the 1st time we danced. I anticipate having a fun time also again the 2nd time we dance. Frankie has a good record in his rematches. My record in rematches are pretty good also – if they know that as well – I’m not too shabby in rematches….”
Kruck asked, “Let’s say that you lose to Edgar but you put on a great show. Do you then deserve a rematch?”
“I’m not one of those guys to proclaim ‘Hey, I want this or I want that’ I don’t want to be one of those prima donna wide receivers. I’m the guy that goes out there and gets the job done. Doesn’t complain and does his work. I want to be like a Jerry Rice or a Larry Fitzgerald. I don’t want to be the prima donna wide receiver always complaining and moaning ‘I need this or I need that. I’m not gonna sign a contract until I get this.’ I just want to be one of those good guys that goes out there and gets the job done.”
