UFC champion Edgar inspires NFL's New York Jets' win over Houston Texans

New, 3 comments

When New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez spoke to the media following his team's come-from-behind last minute 30-27 win against the Houston Texans on Sunday, he credited the guest speaker head coach Rex Ryan brought in to speak to the team prior to the game. That guest speaker was none other than UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, who was a big underdog in both his fights against B.J. Penn this year only to come out victorious by unanimous decision on both occasions.

Listen as Sanchez talks about what Edgar had to say to the team, which has now won its last three games in dramatic fashion to move to 8-2 on the season, good for first place in the NFL's AFC East Division.
