Gray Maynard broken hand, out 4 to 6 weeks

Gray Maynard

Gray Maynard is on the shelf for four to six weeks because of a broken hand sustained during his lightweight bout against Frank Edgar at UFC Fight Night 13 at the Broomfield Event Center in Broomfield, Colo., on April 2.

"The Bully" used a distinct size advantage to dominate the undefeated New Jersey native en route to an impressive unanimous decision win.

It's an achievement that raised the stock significantly for the former contestant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 in the deep 155-pound class. In fact, it's possible that he will next lock horns with Nate Diaz sometime in 2008.

Diaz submitted Maynard in the semifinals of the 16-man tournament, going on to claim the championship with a technical knockout win over Manny Gamburyan in the finals. Both fighters have shined since their stints in the mixed martial arts reality series.

Let's hope Gray gets well soon and we see the rematch. If not, Tyson Griffin has been discussed as possible next opponent for Diaz.

Either way ... win-win. Both are solid match ups.
