UFC Quick Quote: Frank Edgar focused on winning ... and Gray Maynard

Frank Edgar

"I'm definitely one of the players in the weight class. It might depend on the outcome of this fight and a couple of other fights in the UFC. The 155-pound class is definitely one of the most stacked in the UFC.... Every fight is important for position. If you lose, you're pretty much out of the picture for a while. It (the competition for a title shot) is pretty vicious. You're only as good as your last fight.... You get better by winning. If you win, everything takes care of itself. You get what you want to get out of it. I know this is going to be a tough fight. He (Maynard) is big, strong, has heavy hands and comes from a good camp."

-- UFC lightweight contender Frank Edgar tells his hometown rag, The Asbury Park Press, that his fight next week against Gray Maynard at UFC Fight Night 13 is important if he wants to remain in the 155-pound title chase. In fact, he says that every fight is equally important ... and he's right -- especially in a division so stacked. I wasn't too thrilled when this match up was first announced, but it's grown on me over time. Hopefully, it's an action-packed, fast-paced back-and-forth war.
