Gray Maynard Interested In Fourth Meeting With Frankie Edgar, Believes UFC Doesn’t Want It

Gray Maynard sports a career record of 1-1-1 against former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, and “The Bully” would like nothing more than a fourth meeting to settle the score.

For now, Maynard is set to meet T.J. Grant in May at UFC 160. But, if the opportunity fight Edgar once again was presented to him – even with “The Answer” at 145 pounds – he would think long and hard about making the drop.

“If there was a bout that was really awesome, like Edgar, that would be great. I would try to do it. I don’t know if I could [make 145],” Maynard said, during a recent interview with MMA Fight Corner. “The Edgar bout is kind of off as of now. Dana kind of wants him to not get hurt I think.”

Maynard is coming off a victory over Clay Guida, but spent the latter part of 2012 on the sidelines after suffering a knee injury. He was scheduled to meet Joe Lauzon, but the injury knocked him out.

Maynard stated that he asked for a match with Anthony Pettis, but was happy to receive Grant.

“I think he’s a top guy. Not the top guy, but he’s a top guy. I asked for the Pettis bout and they gave me one harder. So I was jumping up for joy,” Maynard said of Grant.
