The Octagon has a cure for your New Year’s Eve hangover with a little MMA action on Saturday night. Lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will defend his strap against undefeated Gray Maynard in UFC 125‘s the featured attraction.
If you can’t wait for this weekend to come, Spike TV and the UFC has you covered. “Countdown to UFC 125: Resolution” debuts tonight at 11:30PM PT/ET. Fans will get an in-depth look at both Edgar and Maynard’s respective camps.
“The Answer” holds a nearly perfect 13-1 professional record, with his lone blemish coming at the hands of Maynard. The champ dropped a lopsided unanimous decision to Maynard back in April 2008.
Maynard will not only look to make it two in a row against the Jersey boy, but he’s hoping to steal the 155-pound crown in the process.
We’ll also get a look at the co-featured main event, as Chris Leben and Brian Stann prepare for their middleweight affair.
UFC 125 goes down New Year’s Day. The festivities begin at 6PM PT on ION Television with “UFC 125 Prelims” before the pay-per-view portion kicks off at 7PM PT/10PM ET.
