Frankie Edgar says Benson Henderson woke up a sleeping giant within him

In the summer between my sophomore and junior years of high school, I grew about five inches in about three months. I went from being the shortest kid in my entire school to somewhere right in the middle of the height spectrum for 16-year-old boys. It’s a bummer I didn’t keep growing at that rate. In fact, I still put my endocrinologist in a headlock and threaten his life on a weekly basis to give me a shot that tricks my pituitary glands into thinking I’m still undergoing puberty. I’m fairly certain he’s still holding it back from me for conspiratorial reasons. At my age, most people have just accepted it; Frankie Edgar certainly has. In time, I probably will too. In a world where the most interesting fights come from the smallest fighters in the business, Frankie sits atop the list of people you never want to face in a rematch. While no date is set, Frankie and his team are already strategizing how they plan on getting his UFC lightweight championship belt back around his waist as shown in this MMAWeekly video.
