As UFC lightweight Gray Maynard prepares to complete the second trilogy series of his career, you might think more rematches are the last thing on his mind. But “The Bully” insists it’s quite the opposite.

I like the unfinished business attitude but that would be quite a cut.

Please no. I was happy to see Edgar go to 145 to finally get some new matchups. Now he's fighting B.J. Penn in a pointless fight and Maynard wants another fight. Stay at Lightweight Gray.

1-1-1. Leave it at that Maynard. The weight cut would kill him and Edgar has proven he cannot be KO'd yet in his career and we all saw Gray gas after 2 rounds in both title fights.

**Easy translation kids**

This is what Gray is really saying.....

"Umm, after Nate kicks my ass, uhh, I.....uhh, will cut off my right leg to make weight at 145."

Actually I would... Especially if the bout was contested over 3 rounds. Admittedly my interesting has declined since TJ/Gray. But I still want to see it.

May I ask... why?

I feel like Edgar already won that trilogy. Not sure how their second fight was considered a draw.

Sure man

The second fight was a draw, The first round probably has one of the biggest arguments to being a 10-7 round in the UFC, and the 3rd round Gray Maynard was more productive landing 2 takedowns, having a 7% greater striking accuracy but only landing 4 less punches. Either that fight was 47-47, 47-46 to Maynard or 48-46 Edgar.

In a 3 round fight Gray Maynard would have won the first and drawn the second.

Besides all of this in 3 fights between the 2 they have won FOTN and KOTN and won an award for FOTY.
Now that it is becoming clear neither fighter will really ever contend for a title again I don't see what the problem is.

I loved watching the 2 guys fight. They really did put on a show. Frankie might have won because he was the first guy to solidly put away the other guy but it doesn't stop the fight being exciting and the matchup being a good one.

I'd rather see Edgar/Maynard 4 than Edgar/BJ 3.

I would be very interested in seeing how both men approached a 3 round fight, Edgar could not afford to lose the first round 10-8 like he did twice. And Maynard wouldn't have to focus on conditioning for a 25 minute fight.

I don't deny my opinion isn't one of a kind, but the fight is probably in the top 10 fantasy fights of mine I really want to see
Maybe Americans got fed up of having to pay for 2 PPV's headlined by the 2, but over in the UK whereby we don't have to pay for our events (as such) we just have to stay up till 5am for when the Main Events starts, it was a price worth paying because you knew they were going to put on a show.
