UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar shared his thoughts on his rematch bout against BJ Penn this past Saturday night at UFC 118. He truly believes that it was his confidence that helped him retain the 155-pound belt. Edgar will now have to use that “confidence” in his upcoming title defense bout against Gray ‘The Bully’ Maynard.
From Frankie Edgar:
“I built on my confidence. The first time I was in there, I had the confidence I could do what I needed to do, but I hadn’t done it before. After doing it and knowing I could do it going in a second time, that confidence added a lot to it.”
