    Default EDGAR CONFIRMS PENN REMATCH LOOKS LIKELY

    The decision on who new UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will fight for his first defense should be coming soon. It looks like it's going to be a rematch with the fighter he beat to get the title earlier this month.

    Former champion B.J. Penn had commented just after the fight that the UFC had already approached him about a potential second fight with Edgar later this year, and the new king at 155 pounds had heard much the same thing.

    "There's been talks, there's definitely been talks," Edgar told MMAWeekly Radio. "I haven't signed anything, so when I sign I'll definitely let you know."

    Edgar admits that he would love the chance to get back at the fighter who holds the only win over him in his career in a title defense, but understands why Penn would get the first crack at his belt.

    "I really wouldn't mind fighting Gray (Maynard) just to avenge that loss. Not that there's any love lost or anything like that, but just for the fact of it's just the chance to avenge the loss," Edgar stated.

    "If it's B.J., it's B.J. If anybody deserves a rematch right away I guess it would be him, you know?"

    As far as timing for the lightweight title fight, all signs at this point are leading to a late summer bout, possibly headlining the upcoming UFC show in Boston on Aug. 28.

    Following the fight, Edgar told MMAWeekly Radio that he had contracted a small case of staph infection, but after treatment he would soon be back in the gym, and a fight in the late part of the summer would work well for him.

    "I think late summer would be cool. My wife is actually due to give birth in June, mid to early June, something like that, so late summer would be okay," said Edgar. "(It would) be a little crunch time, but I plan on going back in the gym on Monday."

    Stay tuned to MMAWeekly.com. We’ll have more details about the final bout decision as they become available.

    FYI Iggy, just about everyone that was making the MMA board here so popular went back to SN. Your post (I think) was the first one on here in about a week.
