UFC's Frankie Edgar out to Answer challenge
By Neil SPRINGER, QMI Agency
TORONTO - Frankie (The Answer) Edgar is on the cusp of etching his name in the history books.
Following a successful run at lightweight — which included a 22-month title reign — Edgar challenges featherweight champion Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 156 in Las Vegas Saturday.
Not only does a victory mean another world championship, but it cements Edgar’s name alongside Randy Couture and B.J. Penn as the only fighters to win UFC titles in two separate weight classes.
Edgar knows what’s at stake, but said he can’t afford to lose focus against an opponent as dangerous as Aldo.
