Bulging discs, not his rib injury, ultimately were the reason UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar was forced out of a UFC 130 title fight with Gray Maynard on Monday.

In fact, he told UFC.com, he planned to fight through both injuries.

But as UFC officials recently announced, the fight instead was scrapped when Maynard also fell victim to injuries, and their headlining spot has been replaced by Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Matt Hamill.

This is why I love Frankie. The kid is always game, and has the heart of a champion. Major props to him for wanting to fight even with two seperate injuries.

Agreed. The kid is full of heart. I'm glad neither of these guys will be out long and the fight can happen relatively soon. Ufc 130 took a big hit but it'll still be a good card. They should make it free on Spike but that's just me being a spoiled mma fan.
