Frankie Edgar

The pride of Toms River, New Jersey, was already established as one of the UFC’s best at the time, and he had the world lightweight title and a pair of wins over BJ Penn to prove it, but it wasn’t until he roared back from a near knockout loss in the opening round of his rematch with Gray Maynard to secure a draw verdict and retain his title that the whole world got on the bandwagon of “The Answer”.

They never left. More than ten years later.

“I can remember it like it was yesterday,” said Edgar.
