The no. 1 UFC lightweight title contender Frankie Edgar admits that his upcoming UFC 112 title fight against BJ Penn will be a pretty difficult task. However, he feels that he’ll be working hard enough to keep up with “the Prodigy” come fight night. He’ll be training hardcore at the gym with his coaches rather than focusing solely on past video fights.
From Frankie Edgar:
“[BJ Penn’s] flexibility, balance, all that stuff, he’s going to be a tough nut to crack. I’m going to have my hands full for sure. I definitely watch video. I don’t get too caught up in it though because I feel like that’s almost psyching yourself out. I’d rather have my team, my coaches look at it, tell me what they think and I will sit down and watch it with them, but I’m not a big video guy. I don’t sit with the remote and hit rewind every 10 seconds through the video. It’s going to be in the desert, it’s going to be hot, so we’ll probably be sweating a lot. I predict a lot of sweat. How about that?”
