There is a difference between a wolf and a sheep. Frankie Edgar is a monster among wolfs. This event would have most likely been cancelled, but as always, Frankie Edgar stepped up. Many fighters in his position would have waited to get their title shot, but Frankie told us he isn’t interested in waiting. Frankie tells manager Ali Abdelaziz, “I want to fight now, then again in April Atlantic City and when Max comes back we’ll fight him.” We want to thank Brian Ortega for stepping in and taking the fight. We also want to thank the UFC for making this possible. We hope the fans enjoy this fight at UFC 222.
