"I came to much quicker this time around but I was like, 'man.' We bounced back last time and I don't think it was as bad as the last first round so I figured I could close the gap a little sooner. ... I'm high energy, I'm fast paced. I'm probably smaller than Gray, I'm smaller than a lot of 155-pound fighters out there but I know I just gotta keep moving and keep working to my strengths. I think it was on a transition. I caught him with a nice right and I seem him stumble and it was like, I smell blood, man, let's take him out."

-- Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar describes (via UFC.com) his shocking comeback victory over Gray Maynard in the main event of UFC 136 last night (Oct. 8, 2011) in Houston, Texas. The New Jersey native finally found "the answer" to taking care of his own personal "Bully;" just knock his ass clean out. That's exactly what he did -- but it didn't come before a great deal of adversity. Just like their fight on Jan. 1 at UFC 125, Maynard came storming out of the gates to beat up Edgar all throughout the opening frame, nearly finishing him in a scene that was so eerily reminiscent of their first bout, it sent a collective chill through the spines of every fan in the Toyota Center. But, just like last time, Edgar would not allow himself to be beaten and this time he finished the job. It was an amazing fight to cap off an amazing trilogy between two incredible fighters. Agreed?
