Frankie Edgar: 155 Reasons In Defeat VideoPosted on July 18, 2012, 04:13 PM by Mike Drahota
In the first episode of Gaspari Nutrition's Frankie Edgar:155 Reasons series, the former Lightweight champion's coaches praise Edgar's competitive nature and tenacity. His boxing coach explains that Ben Henderson cuts weight to roll BJJ at 180, and cuts a ton to fight at 155 lbs. Because Edgar walks around at 155 lbs., this makes his UFC 150 title fight comparable to Henderson fighting Anderson Silva. Edgar is humble and shows respect for his opponent while retaining his razor-sharp focus on the goal of becoming champion again. Edgar admits that Henderson is very tough to train for because he has a lot of skills and is a huge Lightweight. Edgar shows a ton of maturity in not living in the past and fighting for the present. A great look at a great champion.
