Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard at UFC 125 in Las Vegas, Nevada

The much anticipated lightweight title clash between current UFC champion, Frankie Edgar and the only man to defeat the champ, Gray Maynard is set to go down at UFC 125 in Las Vegas, Nevada on January 1st, 2011.

Edgar defeated long-time UFC lightweight champion, BJ Penn for the title in a five round war in Abu Dhabi. He followed that up just last month by defending his title against the Hawaiian for a second time, beating him hands down this time around.

Maynard’s rise to the title has been an impressive one, defeating top contenders such as Roger Huerta, Nate Diaz and Kenny Florian. A win over the champ earlier in their careers makes him the favourite heading into this title clash.
