Frankie Edgar Is Saying It Loud: ‘I Want My Rematch’

“I’m saying it, and I’m saying it loud: I want my rematch. I’m not going to have these antics or play these games. I’m telling you want I want. This is what I want. I think it’s fair. I think the fans want to see it. It was fight of the night. Listen, even if these guys want to see me get beat up, I do get beat up in a lot of my fights, even in the fights I win, so it’s win-win for everybody… I think the rematch makes sense on several levels. Not only can UFC be good guys, I think I earned it. Economically, they’ve been investing money in me. I’ve been at the helm of this weight class for two years now. I think it just makes sense for them and obviously for me. Let’s do it… That [rematch] is what I want. I think it’s right. I think i earned it. I’m not trying to put down Ben or any other contender, but I think I earned my spot to deserve this rematch.”

— Frankie Edgar on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani loudly proclaiming he wants his rematch against Ben Henderson

Well, if Frankie Edgar’s manager didn’t already make his intentions clear enough yesterday, Frankie sure did today. Even if you don’t agree with Edgar that he deserves a rematch, you at least have to respect his tenacity. The kid has already proved he’s a fighter inside the cage and it looks like he’s setting out to prove he’s one outside of it too.

I’m definitely liking this fired up version of Frankie Edgar, but the question is if the will like it enough to give him the rematch?
