I actually had a dream about this fight just the other night, lol. Edgar won via unanimous decision via controlling the wrestling and winning the stand up. Surprisingly, he utilised a lot of kicks in the fight though and was firing out wild, spinning kicks....

I'll go with Edgar via wild kicks and stuffing Grays take downs.

Usually dreams mean the opposite but who knows lol. I got Maynard cause I thought he won that last match and I think he can pull this off.

Maynard beat him once already and should have finished him in the first round of their second fight. I'll take Maynard for the same reason Edgar couldn't beat him the first two times: he's too big, too strong, and a superior wrestler.
I think Edgar will drop to FW and be the next challenger to Jose Aldo, and rightfully so. Edgar doesn't belong in the stacked LW division and FW needs more depth.

What? I know he'd do well at FW but to say he doesn't belong at LW is just ridiculous.

I think Edgar takes this via UD, may get into trouble during one or two of the rounds but I think he stays composed and doe enough to get the win.

I think Edgar takes the UD this time or gets finished. Maynard will go headhunting for five rounds and Edgar will do his usual thing.

I'm going with Maynard because I felt like he is 2-0 in this match up. I give credit to Frankie for making it competitive, but I feel this time Gray is actually not going to be as wild and sloppy and will use some of Frankie's tricks against him. Still should be a great war!

Frankie got this. But honestly, I had their second encounter a draw as well.

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.
