By his own admission, lightweight prospect Matt Wiman did not make wise choices early in his career. Promoters liked his any time, any place attitude, but as his career began to take off, it didn’t serve him well.

“When I was younger, I would get in over my head, because I would just take any fight, any time and not even really prepare for it,” he said. “I was fighting guys with three times as many fights as me. I was taking fights on short notice. I was taking fights just to make a dollar and have a challenge.”

Im hoping that Wiman is going to send Frankie into the Featherweight Division where we can watch people like Matt Brown and Urijah Faber SMASH him, but it would take a decisive victory from Wiman to do that.

wimans my boy.ive been rootin for him since i saw him fight spencer fisher. (thought that flying knee was a bit of a cheep shot) to be honest im worried about him this time around. edgar has got really good wrestling and i see this fight goin to him by a long boring drawn out lay and pray UD. hopefully wiman proves me wrong. i still picked him for a second round finish.

By cheap shot, you must mean perfectly timed and executed sweet ass flying knee. It was a good lesson to Wiman. Quit showboating and keep your hands up.

I think you better reconsider. You're worried for a reason. Edgar is an awesome wrestler. He has outwrestled some top LW's, Franca and Griffin. It's going to happen again. Wiman is going to get overwhelmed by Edgar's far superior wrestling.
