The Bully wont get caught up In trying to go for a KO for the last 4 rounds this time, and will win a decision.

Maynard by decision after outwrestling Frankie. This time he will be focusing on that instead being confident that can he take Frankie down like he did last time. And I'm rooting for Maynard.

Always supporting:

Frank Mir - BJ Penn - Shogun Rua - Vitor Belfort - Demian Maia - Cole Miller

Yes I agree that Maynard almost knock him out during the first round (10-8). But he came back and won the 2nd,3rd and 5th round. All (10-9). Final score (47-47)

Plus, the way Frankie improve between fights is crazy. Maynard can expect a new and improve Frankie Edgar for this fight.

Frankie Edgar is the "Answer". He is the answer to BJ Penn at Lightweight and come UFC 136, he will be the "Answer" to solve the undefeated Gray Maynard.
Personally i'd have given that 1st round a 10-7. Edgar offered nothing but backwards steps and failed desperate takedowns. His recovery after that round and his heart was amazing though.

I'm picking Maynard in this 3rd fight. I think Maynard punched himself out in the 1st round last time. That wont happen again.

Surprised so many are picking Maynard. Edgar proved in the last fight that he's actually a better MMA wrestler than Maynard.

Edgar is pretty much better every where.

grey. 2nd rnd tko.

I scored the rounds like this, first round 10g-7f (i believe that much domination, that close to being done SEVERAL times [i also believe if frankie wasnt the champion the fight wouldve been stopped in the first] is a 10-7) 10g-9f, 10f-9g, 10f-9g, 10-9g. But that's just me.

Edgar was able to come back in an amazing way, but Maynard was head-hunting for 4 rounds after the first, plus the fact that he punched himself out so badly in the first kept him from finishing it or being effective with the strikes later in the fight. He won't make the same mistake twice.

...Man! I can't wait for this one!!! Edgar's incredible comeback getting dropped multiple times in their last fight is still hard to believe. It really was one of the best 1st round survivals in UFC history. Frankie has a monster chin. If Maynard couldn't finish Edgar after that mindboggling beating, Frankie won't make the same mistake twice. Edgar's speed, footwork, and boxing skills are a real treat to watch. This fight will go all 5. I'm picking Frankie for a UD. I'm sure he's made the right adjustments like avoiding Gray's nasty left hook that made him forget what happened in that 1st round. This fight will be crazy!!

Edgar by decision no doubt. He survived that onslaught in the 1st and I believe he can out box and out work Maynard, but we'll see come fight day!!!
