Those Frankie Edgar genes are strong. Apparently Edgar’s kids are born with the ability to wrestle-box before they develop any other fine motor skills.
Frankie Edgar coaches his son Santino Edgar during a wrestling match on the first UFC Embedded for UFC 222 and it’s amazing. You have to crawl before you can walk. Nope, not true. In the Edgar family tree, you have to push through the takedown before you can crawl. Also, before your first steps you have to box up other kids who can’t score a takedown.
Wrestlers who can strike are all the rage across the Pre-K playgrounds in New Jersey.
Check out Santino hit a takedown during his match exactly like his dad did during an UFC fight.
