This weeks episode we have a huge guest.. None other than number one contender Frank "The Answer" Edgar Edgar entered his first mixed martial arts fight with only a few weeks of training outside of his wrestling background. Edgar originally trained with Rob Guarino of Rhino Fight Team, but today he is part of the Gracie system under Ricardo Almeida in Hamilton, New Jersey. Since 7th Grade Edgar has wrestled with Steve Rivera at Elite Wrestling NJ in Jackson, New Jersey. Edgar amassed a 5–0 record before trying out for the Ultimate Fighter Season one. Edgar tried out in front of Dana White and Joe Silva but was not selected to be on the show. However, a month later the UFC contacted Edgar and asked if he would accept a fight with fellow undefeated fighter Tyson Griffin at UFC 67. Griffin caught Edgar in a deep kneebar at the end of the fight, but Edgar refused to tap and lasted out the remainder of the round to win by unanimous decision. He and Griffin earned Fight of the Night and the fight has been frequently rebroadcast on UFC Unleashed. Edgar followed up with a first-round TKO victory over Mark Bocek at UFC 73. He next made his main card debut at UFC 78 against veteran fighter Spencer Fisher and won via unanimous decision. Edgar suffered his first loss at UFC Fight Night 13 against Gray Maynard. Though the underdog, Maynard used his size and wrestling skill to overpower Edgar en route to a unanimous decision. Edgar rebounded with another Fight of the Night victory against Hermes Franca at UFC: Silva vs. Irvin. Edgar then defeated former UFC Lightweight champion Sean Sherk, outworking him all three rounds to earn the unanimous decision victory over the stronger and heavier fighter. Matt Veach has been named as Pellegrino's replacement, moving up from the undercard bout. Frankie Edgar won via Rear Naked Choke at 2 minutes and 22 seconds into the 2nd round. Edgar is scheduled to face B.J. Penn for the UFC Lightweight Championship on April 10, 2010 at UFC 112.
