Maynard to Joe Silva: Give me Edgar


Let the chirping begin!

“I texted Joe Silva and told him I want the [title] fight,” said Maynard. “I will fight whoever they want me to, but they know I want to fight for the belt.”…

“They announced Edgar as the guy like a day after my fight with Diaz, so it’s not like I had a lot of time to say anything,” said Maynard. “Sure, I talked to Dana [White] after the Diaz fight and he knows I want to fight for the belt — that’s what everyone wants to do — but I trust them and hopefully now I will get a shot at my dream.”…

“You have to bully him,” said Maynard, detailing the strategy he employed in their 2008 bout. “He is fast and you can’t let him move around like he did against Penn. You have to hit him with some punches, then get your hands on him and push him up against the cage and make him fight your fight.”

If you haven’t listened to Ryan’s triumphant return to the podcasting world, 1) make sure your testicles have not retracted and 2) tell me how you justify telling an undefeated Gray Maynard that he ‘needs more seasoning’ when he’s 1-0 against the champ.
