"You can’t let (the crowd) affect you. I’ve got bills. I’ve got all that stuff... All the odds were stacked against me. All the odds. That’s a blue-collar win for me, and I’m blue-collar..."I’ve beaten all the top guys. I’m ready"
The hometown Boston Globe caught up with "The Bully" Gray Maynard after his unanimous decision win over Boston bred Kenny Florian at UFC 118. Dana White reconfirmed that Maynard will get the next title shot at Frankie Edgar's lightweight belt and Maynard believes he's up to the challenge. Can Maynard beat Edgar for a second time (the two clashed previously at UFC Fight Night 13 in 2008)? And are fans sharpening their knives, ready to slice Maynard and his cautious approach to pieces in the comments?
