Gray Maynard got Robbed at UFC 125

In what had to be one of the greatest title fights in some time, Gray Maynard and Frankie Edgar battled to a draw at UFC 125.

Initially, I had the fight scored for Maynard 48-47 (10-9, 9-10, 10-9, 9-10, 10-9). Before the final decision, I realized that Maynard probably won the first round 10-8 and conceded that he could have lost the last round. Still, even with these changes, Maynard won the decision 47-46.

Others are arguing that the fight should have gone to Edgar while others are convinced the draw was the right outcome. Either way, it looks as these fighters will meet again to determine the lightweight title.

Gray Maynard vs. Frank Edgar

UFC Fight Night Kenny Florian vs. Joe Lauzon pits two undefeated fighters against one another. Gray Maynard (5-0-1) will face Frank Edgar (7-0-0) in what should be a televised matchup. Maynard was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 5 and lost to the eventual champion Nathan Diaz. Maynard was dominating the fight with Diaz until he got caught in a guillotine choke.

Edgar is quickly becoming known as one of the best fighters in the lightweight division. With wins over Spencer Fisher, Mark Bocek and Tyson Griffin, Edgar will look to continue his path to a title shot.

Both fighters specialize in wrestling and cardio, so this fight may come down to experience. As much as I like Maynard, I find it hard to believe that Edgar will lose this fight. Expect Edgar to grind out a decision win.

UFC Fight Night: Dennis Siver vs. Gray Maynard

Gray Maynard, aka "The Bully," is my favorite fighter from The Ultimate Fighter 5. He showed constant improvement on the show and lost to the eventual champion Nate Diaz. As I remember it, Maynard was dominating Maynard until he got caught in a guillotine choke in the second round. Maynard will face Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night Swick vs Burkman. Siver and Maynard are both good wrestlers, so I expect this fight to happen on the mat. I think the better wrestler will win this fight and Maynard is that guy (via decision).
