It looks like Gray Maynard didn’t manage to get out of his fight against Frankie Edgar completely unscathed: he broke his hand while beating on his opponent for three rounds. Good news is this wasn’t a Rampage-style broken hand, and he’s only on the shelf for 4-6 weeks. Considering most guys are only getting booked every 3-4 months, I doubt this means we’ll be getting much a delay in seeing Maynard return to the octagon.
By beating Frankie Edgar, Maynard pushed himself up into the clusterfuck of potential lightweight title contenders. The list seems to be getting longer and longer every event, since Joe Silva doesn’t seem to want to book the contenders against eachother to work out a solid next opponent for the winner of Sherk / Penn.
