Former two-time number one division contender, Gray Maynard, finally gets a new opponent after spending the entire 2011 mixed martial arts (MMA) fight season attempting to wrest the belt from the resilient clutches of then-UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar.
Despite his best efforts, including two brutal first rounds at UFC 125 and UFC 136, during which he beat "The Answer" from pillar to post, Edgar stormed back to earn a draw and then a come-from-behind technical knockout.
"The Bully," who recently relocated to train at American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) in San Jose, Calif., will now have to fight his way back toward the top of the 155-pound mountain, starting with the hairy and scary Clay Guida at the upcoming event, scheduled for June 22, 2012, In Atlantic City, New Jersey. 4
Anyone think Maynard, who has just one loss in 12 pro bouts, can saw through "The Carpenter" on fight night?
