Frankie Edgar is your new hero, and unfortunately you probably didn’t even know until tonight. Judging from Frankie Edgar’s last TKO (over four years ago), you assumed that he was just a tiny little guy that squeaked out decisions and continued to improve his ridiculous winning streak. Well, for those people — how silly do you feel now?
Edgar becomes the only human being on the face of the earth to ever stop Gray Maynard in an MMA bout. Well, that’s if you disregard Nate Diaz’s gully choke over The Bully in The Ultimate Fighter Season Five. It’s ashame those matches don’t count because Nate Diaz would have derailed the Maynard Frate Trane back in 2007. However, I think we should all take off our hats to Frankie Edgar for shutting up a large portion of people on The Underground and the Sherdog forums. If you don’t have a hat, just pretend like you have one and then take it off. Your friends may think you’re peeling out imaginary hair from your head, but you know what’s going down — and that’s all that matters.
Tonight, Frankie Edgar weathered through a hurricane — but can he make it through an El Nino? Now excuse me while I dust my shoulders off, because that’s probably the smoothest ending to any UFC 136 article that will be composed this weekend.
