Rising lightweight Frank Edgar (8-0) will look to continue his ascent to the top of the 155-pound division when he takes on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 alum, Gray Maynard (4-0), at UFC Fight Night 13 on April 2 from the Broomfield Event Center in Broomfield, Colo.
FiveOuncesOfPain.com recently confirmed the rumored match up, which adds another quality bout to the already loaded SpikeTV special event.
Edgar is undefeated in his professional mixed martial arts career and in three fights inside the Octagon. "The Answer" holds impressive wins over Tyson Griffin, Mark Bocek and most recently, Spencer Fisher.
Maynard has also competed three times in the Octagon since his stint on TUF 5, defeating Joe Veres and Dennis Siver. He was also involved in the bizarre simultaneous knockout/tapout in the fight with Rob Emerson at the TUF 5 Finale that resulted in a "No Contest."
This is certainly a step up in competition for Maynard and what could be considered a step down for Edgar. Both fighters possess strong wrestling backgrounds, but overall, Edgar is better at everything.
