UFC Quick Quote: Frankie Edgar 'super excited' to have a shot at BJ Penn

"I'm super excited. I'm glad I got my shot. I'm looking forward to seizing the opportunity. BJ looked great [at UFC 107]. His timing is unmatched. Diego had a game-plan and got rocked and it was tough to go back to the game plan. I'm working hard all the time (with Ricardo Almeida). Renzo is training now. He's getting ready for his fight. I can't get a better situation to get better at jiu-jitsu. I know (Georges St. Pierre) comes into the city and trains with Renzo. If we cross paths, then I'll pick his brain a little bit."

UFC lightweight number one contender Frankie Edgar talks to Ground and Pound Radio (via Heavy.com) about preparing for the moment he's been waiting for since the day he started competing in mixed martial arts, hoping he has "The Answer" for current division kingpin BJ Penn at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi. "The Prodigy" has been unstoppable since returning to the lightweight division in 2007, finishing all five of his victims and never looking the least bit challenged in any of those contests. Will his title defense on April 10 be his last before trying his luck again at welterweight? Or can Edgar shock the world? Thoughts?
