Considered the best fight at this Saturday’s UFC 125 event in Las Vegas, Frankie Edgar’s title defense against Gray Maynard ended in a draw, and the belt stayed with Edgar.
Now the previously defined order, whereby WEC champion Anthony Pettis would be the next challenger, has changed. Pettis will have to wait a while longer, as UFC president Dana White has changed his mind.
Although no date has yet been set, Edgar will again defend his title against Maynard, bringing the number of times the two have faced off to three. Undefeated Gray is responsible for the only loss on Frankie’s ledger.
