UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by Zuffa, LLC. This promotion is responsible for solidifying the sport's postion in the history-books.
UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
A UFC Fight Night 13 event already brimming with talent just got an extra heaping of star-power: undefeated lightweight Frankie Edgar (8-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) has been booked to take on “The Ultimate Fighter 5” standout Gray Maynard (4-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at the event.
This isn't going to be pretty. Everyone's favorite prospect Gray Maynard is going to get trashed bad no matter where this fight goes. Fiveouncesofpain.com is also reporting he will be training with Kos, Fitch, and Swick out at ATT for this fight so Gray is really screwed.
This is also a horrible fight for Edgar to have. It should be Edgar vs Florian, Lauzon vs Gray but Joe Silva can't do things the easy way.
