It's just a post at sherdog but I don't know why the poster would make something like that up.

Apparently he's rumored to fight grappler Mark Bocek. Should be a great fight. Been waiting for Edgar to fight again for a while now..

I really hope it is true this would be an amzing fight for an alrady good looking card. I hope Bocek has been picked up by the UFC I would love to see Bocek vs. Penn in the future.

This would be a great fight. Bocek is a great grappler and Edgar is going to be a big contender in the LW division. Bocek would be a good addition to the UFC.

I would personally hope that with the talent pool in the UFC's fledgling lightweight division they could give edgar a better matchup,although I admit I don't know much about Bocek... Griffen gets Guida which I think will be a great fight, so I'd rather see Frankie fight a Florian or maybe Alves (should be getting off of suspension soon right?)

Glad to see him back in the ring though, his fight with Tyson was one of the best that I've seen in a while...

Bocek was in the 2007 Abu Dhabi's. He dominated Drew Fickett in the first round. I've only seen him in grappling tournaments so I can't say how he overall is in MMA but he is a good submission grappler.
