Although no opponent has been announced, UFC Lightweight fighter Frank Edgar is looking to bounce back from his first ever loss when he climbs back into the Octagon at UFC 87. Edgar was 8-0 heading into his fight at Ultimate Fight Night 13 before losing a unanimous decision to Gray Maynard. He announced via his website that he will be returning at UFC 87: Seek and Destroy, in Minnesota.

During an interview prior to his UFN 13 match with Maynard, Edgar told us, “I know I don’t need to test his wrestling. I know it’s good.”

Unfortunately for Edgar, Maynard was relentless in his takedowns and was able to ride out an easy decision.

We’ll have more on Edgar’s return as soon as it comes in.
