Frank Edgar vs Matt Wiman UFC Fight for the Troops bout in the works

Frank Edgar vs Matt Wiman UFC Fight for the Troops bout in the worksBy: MMAmania

There’s a an exciting lightweight clash between Frank Edgar (9-1) and Matt Wiman brewing for UFC Fight Night 16: “Fight for the Troops” at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, N.C., on December 10.

MMAmania.com recently learned about the potential 155-pound bout; however, bout agreements have not been signed (though have been distributed to both fighters).
Edgar recently rebounded from the first professional loss of his career to Gray Maynard (unanimous decision) at UFC Fight Night 13 to outpoint former number one contender Hermes Franca on all three judges scorecards at UFC Fight Night 14: “Silva vs. Irvin” in July.

The latter bout was dubbed the “Fight of the Night,” earning Edgar and Franca each an additional $25,000 for their performances. It came as no surprise — Edgar is often involved in action-packed battles.

And the match up with “Handsome” should be no different.

Wiman has been impressive since his stint on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5, finishing three of four fights and winning them all. He demonstrated dangerous knockout power with a second round upset of Thiago Tavares at UFC 85: “Bedlam” back in June of this year.

He has four wins in five attempts inside the Octagon — his only loss was to a man who Edgar defeated at UFC 78: “Validation” in November 2007, Spencer Fisher.
UFC Fight Night 16: “Fight for the Troops” will pay tribute to the United States servicemen and women serving in the armed forces. The three-hour Spike TV broadcast will coincide with a telethon during which viewers will be encouraged to call in and donate money to support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

The card features two welterweight clashes between Josh Koscheck and Yoshiyuki Yoshida, as well as Mike Swick against Jonathan Goulet. It’s likely that the match up between Edgar and Wiman — if it gets signed — will join these two bouts on the televised main card.


Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more updates and rumors regarding UFC Fight Night 16: “Fight for the Troops.”

Man this should be a kickass fight. This is shaping up to be a very good free event.

No shit? It'll be nice to see Yoshida beat a top 10 WW.

Wiman vs Edgar is an interesting fight. Me thinks Edgar by decision, but Wiman's a tough guy.

Can't wait to see Yoshida, too bad he has to wait so long. He could have gotten a spot on UFC 91. I'd like to see Frank win this.
