Nu har Edgar själv gått ut och sagt att han kommer att stanna kvar i lättvikten och vill genast ha en returmatch mot Henderson. Detta säger han i en intervju med Ariel Helwani på MMAfighting.com. Se ett utdrag här nedan.
"I'm saying it, and I'm saying it loud: I want my rematch," säger Edgar. "I'm not going to have these antics or play these games. I'm telling you want I want. This is what I want. I think it's fair. I think the fans want to see it. It was fight of the night. Listen, even if these guys want to see me get beat up, I do get beat up in a lot of my fights, even in the fights I win, so it’s win-win for everybody."
"I think the rematch makes sense on several levels," sade han. "Not only can UFC be good guys, I think I earned it. Economically, they’ve been investing money in me. I've been at the helm of this weight class for two years now. I think it just makes sense for them and obviously for me. Let’s do it."
"I’m staying at 155," säger Edgar. "This is where I’m at right now. I still feel like I got a run left. I still want that title back."
"That [returmatch] is what I want," säger Edgar. "I think it’s right. I think I earned it. I’m not trying to put down Ben or any other contender, but I think I earned my spot to deserve this rematch."
