UFC 73: Frank Edgar vs. Mark Bocek

UFC 73 Frank Edgar vs. Mark Bocek
Frank Edgar (6-0) puts his perfect record on the line against ADCC veteran and also undefeated Mark Bocek (4-0) at UFC 73: Stacked.

While both fighters are relative newcomers, this classic grappler vs. wrestler match up could easily turn out to be fight of the night.

Edgar's last three fights have gone to the scorecards including his UFC debut against Tyson Griffin at UFC 67. Whether or not that is a factor against Bocek, who hasn't let a fight go past the first round, remains to be seen.

I know the recent display of lightweight action on The Ultimate Fighter 5 has not exactly been a showcase of pacing and intensity, but I have a feeling that Edgar and Bocek are going to make it a point to prove those battles were the exception, not the rule.
