Frankie Edgar Interview

Frankie Edgar

Despite his loss to Gray Maynard at UFC Fight Night 13, Frankie Edgar plugs on; in this interview with Adam Morgan of FiveOuncesOfPain.com, Edgar touches on a variety of subjects.  Below are some excerpts from the interview:

Adam Morgan: Are you back in the gym already after that last fight or are you taking some time off?

Frankie Edgar: You know, I’ve worked out a couple times already. I try to get back to it pretty fast. I’m getting married here on Saturday so I have been taking a little time off.

Adam Morgan: Oh, you’re getting married on Saturday?

Frankie Edgar: Yeah, I’m getting married tomorrow so things have been kind of hectic.

Adam Morgan: Well, congratulations, sir.

Frankie Edgar: Thanks, man.

Adam Morgan: Getting into the fight itself, it seemed like a lot of guys at UFN 13 were visibly gassed during their fights. I asked you last time if you felt that the altitude would have any effect on the bout, you said no. Now having fought a hard fight, a full three rounds in that climate, would you say it had any effect on the fight at all?

Frankie Edgar: No, I really can’t say that it did. I went out there and I worked out before. I got a bunch of rounds in and felt fine. I felt fine going into the fight, so I don’t know. It just kind of happened real fast. I can’t say if I was completely gassed or not.

Adam Morgan: In the post fight interview, Maynard suggested that he won the fight because he was “just bigger.” Would you say that’s true, that his size presented the biggest problem of all?

Frankie Edgar: No, I just don’t think I fought my best fight, you know? He had a great gameplan and I’m sure his size, you know, he was bigger, that was obvious but I don’t know if that was the whole reason. I’m sure it had something to do with him being able to maybe get some takedowns and stuff like that. But I still don’t think I fought my best fight.
