“UFC 118: Edgar vs. Penn 2″ took place Saturday night inside TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.
Octagon president Dana White upped the ante for Kenny Florian and Gray Maynard by confirming earlier this week the victor will advance to challenge for the lightweight strap in their next Octagon outing. If KenFlo represents in front of his hometown crown, it would mark his third shot at the brass ring.
He’s 0-2 in championship tangos, while Maynard has never danced in a 5Round affair.
In addition, boxing legend James Toney makes his mixed martial arts debut against multi-divisional champ Randy Couture in the night’s co-main event. While “The Natural” has remained quiet leading up to tonight, the “rookie” packed his boxing bravado with him to Beantown and has supplied some fairly entertaining pre-fight commentary.
Frankie Edgar is fresh of his upset victory over lightweight king BJ Penn this past April at UFC 112. Their hotly contested unanimous decision forced UFC brass to arrange an immediate mulligan.
