Gray Maynard says there will be no trash talk between him and Frankie EdgarPosted on September 2, 2010, 07:58 AM by Anton Gurevich
“I was like damn Frankie’s doing good! He just kept coming, and he did good. It was a great fight. My hat’s off to him. This is the best time. I went through all the top guys. Nobody can say, ‘Oh he didn’t do this, or this.’ This is mine, I deserve this, I earned it.
It’s great competition. He trains hard. He’s a cool guy too. It’s cool because his dad is always like ‘hey Gray!’ talks to me and stuff; nicest guy in the world. So trash talk ain’t gonna happen. But I guarantee you he’s going to train hard, and I’ll train, and it’s going to be a good fight. It’s all business. Throw the trash talk out, it’s just all business.
It was blinging, it was all shiny and stuff. I hope he doesn’t mess it up. I don’t want any chips in it when I get it.”-MMAWeekly.com
