Gray Maynard Wants The First Crack At New UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar

New, 4 comments

From Sherdog:

"I texted Joe Silva and told him I want the [title] fight," said Maynard. "I will fight whoever they want me to, but they know I want to fight for the belt."

Maynard then provided his blueprint on how to beat Edgar:

"You have to bully him, He is fast and you can’t let him move around like he did against Penn. You have to hit him with some punches, then get your hands on him and push him up against the cage and make him fight your fight."

If anyone knows what will work it's Maynard, as he gave Edgar his lone defeat via a unanimous decision victory in 2008.
