Postalo je zvanicno da ce sledeci izazivac pojasa u perolakoj kategoriji biti Frankie Edgar i on ce se sa sampionom perolake kategorije Maxom Hollowayom boriti na UFC222 u Las Vegasu.
Edgar je bivisi sampion lake kategorije i od kako je odlico da se spusti jednu kategorije je takode dobio priliku da se bori za pojas perolake. Mnogi MMA fanovi i analiticari ne daju veliku sansu Edgaru za pobedu i veruju kako ova borba nece biti velik problem za Hollowaya, ali izgleda da Edgaru to bas i previse ne smeta jer kako on kaze u njega se ne veruje od prvog dana njegove karijere.
Za FloCombat je izjavio:
“Styles definitely make fights and I love this matchup. I’m hearing these people on the internet talking and asking how I’m going to beat him when I lost to [Jose] Aldo. MMA math doesn’t always work that way. I’m confident in my skills and I truly believe I’m still improving with each performance. I think that showed in my last fight because that was one of my strongest performances. I’m ready to go out there and have a defining fight with Holloway and he’s the perfect guy for me.He’s going to bring it. I’m not going to have to look for him out there and it’s going to be an exciting fight that’s for damn sure. I’ve been doubted since day one. Before I even started fighting people were doubting me and I love proving them all wrong. Going out there and proving these losers who have never done anything in their lives wrong is almost better the victory itself.”
U ciju pobedu vi verujete?
