Frankie Edgar

UFC lightweight fighter Frankie Edgar is a rising star in the promotion, as evidenced by his impressive win over Hermes Franca at UFC Fight Night 14.  Matthew R. Brothers of was granted an interview by Edgar; he discusses a wide variety of subjects.  Some excerpts from the interview:

Matthew Brothers: “First of all Frank I want to congratulate you on your big win Saturday night over Hermes Franca, and extra congratulations for winning fight-of-the-night honors. You must be pretty happy right now.”

Frank Edgar: “Absolutely. It makes my pockets happy for sure. Thanks.”

Matt: “How did it feel to come back after your first career loss and get a victory over a former champion like Hermes, and winning a $25,000 bonus in the process?”

Frank: “It was great man. After your first loss you really get down on yourself, or I did at least and it’s great to bounce back and get back in the win column.”

Matt: “After the big win the other night are you taking a little time off or is it right back to the gym?”

Frank: “Usually I take a week but I got a little banged up and needed some stitches, but as soon as I heal up I’ll be right back in there.”

Matt: “Yeah, how’s the chin doing after that knee connected?”

Frank: “It’s all good, it’s only 10 stitches. No big problem at all.

Matt: “Now that you’re 4-1 in the UFC and you’ve had some big victories, what are your thoughts on a title shot being in your future?”

Frank: “You know, being that I lost my last fight before this one it’s tough to say. 155 is a real deep weight class so whatever the UFC has in store for me I’m cool with. I just want to keep fighting good guys and get better.”
