    Analysis: Anderson Silva should grant Chris Weidman his rightful title shot

    August 10, 2012

    DENVER — After demolishing Chael Sonnen for the middleweight championship at UFC 148, Anderson Silva immediately shot down the idea of a pound-for-pound super fight with light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. The 37-year old said he would rather stick to 185 pounds and continue to fight the division’s top contenders. It was a perfectly reasonable request from the UFC’s most prolific combatant of all-time.

    DENVER — Everyone in attendance for UFC 150 at the Pepsi Center will know about Benson Henderson. The roar of approximately 16,000 fans will overtake the inside of the arena when the UFC lightweight champion walks out to defend his belt against Frankie Edgar. What they won’t realize is that one agonizing decision could have led the 28-year old Henderson to working just outside of the venue on a night like Saturday.

    Rematches have become as much a part of Frankie Edgar’s fighting persona as his perpetual underdog mentality or his flair for dramatic comebacks. When it comes to fighting the same opponent twice in a row, the 30-year old former champion from New Jersey is the UFC’s authority. “Sometimes in rematches, it matters who makes the best adjustments,” Edgar said. “At this level, fights are so close it’s sometimes who shows up that night and performs better.”

    February 21, 2012

    It’s a good thing Frankie Edgar could list “mild-mannered” among his personality traits.
