Den före detta UFC-mästaren i lättviktsklassen Frankie Edgar förlorade sitt bälte på UFC 144: Edgar vs. Henderson i lördags natt till Benson Henderson. Efteråt fick man höra att Edgar nu borde gå ner en viktklass till fjäderviktklassen, detta sade bland annat UFCs president Dana White.

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 HelwaniMMAfighting.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."
