I'm picking Edgar just for the fact he's been in there with the better competition. I think Edgar is better all-around EXCEPT on the feet. Edgar might be more technical but if Gray lands, it could be lights out for Edgar.

But this will be an action packed exciting fight but I'll give a close decision nod to Frankie. Ever since I rented UFC 67 and saw that fight with Tyson several months ago, I've been a huge fan and still feel he will be LW champion one day. Not to mention he won me a shit load of money at UFC 78

WAR EDGAR!!!

Edgar I think would win but this fight has fight of the year written on it. Maynard could easily win this fight by strength and explosiveness.
I see Edgar getting smashed in the first round with Maynard walking through his punches and being stronger in the clinch. Edgar probably learn his lesson and as soon as the fight hits the ground Edgar will smash.

(Edgar by close decision.)

If Maynard is able to attain top position on the ground he could possibly grind out an unlikely decision win.

Edgar probably has better cadrio than Maynard too. On the show Gray looked like he gassed against Diaz so unless he's worked on it a lot it may come into play. We've seen that Edgar can go three rounds at a good pace (vs Tyson Griffin)

i cant see mayneard winning this fight, in any position. on the feet, edgar is much more technical, unless maynard starts going ape shit and catches him. . . . edgar by UD.

Edgar has faced better competition, shown better stand up, and shown better cardio, so I'd have to go with him.

Both guys are improving at rapid paces though, so their camp preparation could play a huge part.

It's always hard to picture an MMA fighter losing until they get their first loss.

I cant decide yet, of course right now im leaning to edgar but I want Maynard to do well in the UFC. The guy had a 9 second KO and hes known for his wrestling!!

Edgar is one of the smartest lightweights in the UFC. He seems to have a perfect gameplan and makes adjustments on the fly. Maynard could get to that level very soon, but this fight will be a great learning experience for him and will make him even better.

Edgar by UD.

It will definately be a war. I picked Edgar. He has been impressive even when he was the dog. Gray is s sound fighter so it will be an interesting fight.

I personally think Edgar will dominate Maynard. Maynard hasn't impressed me in either of his two UFC bouts. The dude knocked himself out in his first one, with some stupid ass slam. In the second fight against Siver who I think is an average fighter as best took him to the limit. Now that's not to say he won't come out and prove me wrong either in this fight. But I'm picking Edgar first round submission.

i think edgar is going to school him on the ground, and dominate the stand-up.

That fight was one of the best I have ever seen. I have become a fan of fighters because of that fight.

I think Edgar will win this fight anyway he wants.

edgar seems like an easy choice here, but i think maynard and edgar are so similar that it may end up being a very close fight that could easily go to decision with eitgher winning. ill take edgar, but i wont be completely stunned if maynard wins it.

Maynard is almost a clone of Edgar (fighting style) only he is slightly below on each level

So I say Edgar, pulls out a pretty dominate UD.

I am going to pick Edgar based on how he has done against tougher competition, but I really fell this fight is very close.

I taking maynard for this reason.. Maynard is a lot better wrestler than Edgar. How does Edgar win all of his fights? It's because of his wrestling. He out wrestles everyone thats good like Griffin and Fisher. He wont be able to out wrestling Maynard. Maynard is a 3 time all american with much better wrestling skills. I should also say that both of these fighters are my favorites and would take either one in a fight against anyone else. My pick is Maynard by UD.

I've got edgar by UD. Both these fighters are in their prime but I think Edgars experience will win him a close decision.

That's the story. Overall quality of the fight'ers' skillsets and their experience gives Edgar a seemingly big advantage, but styles make fights and this is a tough matchup. In many ways it reminds me of Edgar-Griffin where Tyson Griffin seemed like the much better MMA fighter, but when he struggled to take top position, his gameplan became unraveled and it became a very compettiive fight which he ended up losing.
