UFC boss has change of heart, Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard III up next

Quote:
Less than two hours after UFC executive Craig Borsari informed the media at UFC 125's post-event press conference that Anthony Pettis would get the next crack at the UFC's lightweight belt, UFC president Dana White had a change of heart.

White informed MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the promotion will instead book Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard III as soon as possible.

"We changed the plans," White told MMAjunkie.com. "After Craig made the announcement, I had a lot of people talking to me, and the reality is, Gray Maynard deserves that fight. We had planned on doing Anthony Pettis next, but Gray went in there and fought his ass off and deserves another chance.

"In the UFC, we do the right thing, and the right thing is to put on this rematch."

White first discussed the change of plans with Yahoo! Sports.

Edgar was nearly knocked out in the opening round of the main-event bout, which took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. After losing the round 10-8 on all three judges' scorecards, Edgar battled valiantly back for the remaining four frames.

The final four rounds were closely contested, and the fight was scored 48-46 Edgar, 48-46 Maynard, and 47-47, resulting in a draw. Because of the draw, Edgar retained his title.

Makes sense if Frankie's healthy, but if not I'd love to see Pettis vs Maynard for the WEC title, with the winner unifying the belts in a fight with Frankie. Maynard deserves a re-match, but it sucks for Pettis, his last performance was awesome.

Another exciting fight on the way. This fight is going to be ten times more anticipated than the last one.

Thank goodness is all I have to say.

Sometimes you have to love Dana, other times you have to hate him.
