Behind Blue Eyes: Gray Maynard's Lead-up to UFC 136Posted on October 17, 2011, 03:10 PM by Joey Santosus
During the lead-up to what was the biggest fight of his professional fighting career, top Lightweight contender Gray Maynard granted MMAWeekly an inside look at the final days prior to his rematch with division Champion Frankie Edgar at UFC 136.
After coming oh-so-close to finishing the champ within the opening frame, Maynard went on to suffer the first defeat of his career, losing via TKO in the fourth-round. Though he did not leave Houston with the title on that night, "The Bully" has since vowed to climb the latter once again for another shot at claiming the gold. Photo: Francis Specker
