Now that the Octagon has embarked on a bit of a hiatus, the company has released an extended “UFC 130: Edgar vs. Maynard III” video trailer to help tide fans over until the May 28th show hits The Las Vegas Strip.

Unlike the promotional clip the UFC released on Monday that ran only 30 seconds, this pre-fight video packs a whopping nine minutes and 39 seconds of entertainment.

The pay-per-view broadcast will be headlined by a lightweight title affair between challenger Gray Maynard and champ Frankie Edgar. The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Nevada will host the extravaganza.
