"I was like damn Frankie's doing good! He just kept coming, and he did good. It was a great fight. My hat's off to him. This is the best time. I went through all the top guys. Nobody can say, 'Oh he didn't do this, or this.' This is mine, I deserve this, I earned it. It's great competition. He trains hard. He's a cool guy too. It's cool because his dad is always like 'hey Gray!' talks to me and stuff; nicest guy in the world. So trash talk ain't gonna happen. But I guarantee you he's going to train hard, and I'll train, and it's going to be a good fight. It's all business. [His belt] was blinging, it was all shiny and stuff. I hope he doesn’t mess it up. I don't want any chips in it when I get it."
UFC lightweight number one contender Gray Maynard is mesmerized by the shiny gold of Frankie Edgar's championship belt. "The Bully" remains perfect at 10-0, including a 2008 win over "The Answer" in Colorado. Will he be able to repeat that performance against his fellow wrestler when they rematch in 2011? Opinions please.
