We knew it was coming. Now we know when.
MMA Fighting broke the news earlier today.
Edgar is of course coming off of shocking the world, again, when he defeated BJ Penn for a second time this year at UFC 118 last month, asserting himself as the undisputed UFC lightweight champ.
The New Jersey native has only one loss on his record, it just happens that it came to his new challenger to the 155-pound thrown, Gray Maynard.
"The Bully" earned his title shot on the same night Frankie dominated "The Prodigy" at UFC 118 with a convincing decision win over Kenny Florian.
Maynard to this day remains undefeated at 10-0. With a unanimous decision victory over the current champ at UFC Fight Night 13 back in 2008, you gotta think that confidence is something that Gray won't be lacking come New Year's Day.
Will Maynard have the answer for Frankie one more time?
