UFC NEWS – Maynard Wants Fourth Bout With Edgar


“Hopefully he holds on to the belt, because there’s got to be a part four, I think, to make it a true trilogy. Now he has one and I do two, so that’s a draw. So, we gotta do it again. Hopefully, he holds on the belt and I can work back up there.”

In an interview with Tatame.com former UFC lightweight title challenger, Gray Maynard states his case for a fourth encounter with Frankie Edgar.

After handing down Edgars first loss, Maynard failed in two separate fights to repeat the initial performance and as a result did not capture UFC gold.

In fact, in their last meeting it was Edgar who returned the favor and gave Maynard his first loss as well as simultaneously sending the contender back down the ladder.

After three fights the pair are technically even this much is true, but good luck convincing the UFC and fans to buy into a fourth matchup. Trilogies are rare; four-peats are almost unheard of.
