UFC Quick Quote: Frankie Edgar chimes in on Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz at UFC 158

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Former UFC titleholder Frankie Edgar weighs in on the highly anticipated UFC 158 championship fight between Georges St. Pierre and Nick Diaz, set to go down at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on March 16.

"I think they both come in with strong cardio, Georges is the superior athlete. I think Nick would want to try and pressure him on his feet as much as he can, try to avoid takedowns, but I think - Georges, no one does it better than him on taking people down and he's got some of the best ground-and-pound too and you will see a lot of that utilized in this fight to get the win."

-- Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion and current featherweight contender Frankie Edgar gave a quick analysis of the UFC 158 main event of Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz to "Showdown" Joe Ferraro of Sportsnet. "The Answer," like many, believe the wrestling abilities of the current welterweight champ St. Pierre are going to be too much for Diaz to overcome in the fight and ultimately it will be the French-Canadian's ability to control where the fight takes place that will earn him the win. Admittedly, Edgar is slightly bias towards "Rush" as the two have trained together in the past and share a lot of the same coaches; however, he isn't counting Diaz out of winning the fight completely. While it isn't exactly an in-depth analysis of how the fight is going to play out, Edgar makes some logical points in his short but sweet breakdown of the fight.
