Frankie Edgar: “It’s a little less pressure, but I would always rather be the guy headlining cards.”

Frankie Edgar is the only UFC fighter to get three losses in a row, and have them all be title fights. The losses put him in a very unique position, they are to the number one guys in their respective divisions, but to a fighter’s mind they are still losses. Edgar is preparing for his UFC 162 fight with Charles Oliveira and he took some time to talk to the media at the UFC Harold Square Takeover. Edgar spoke about fighting for 3 rounds instead of five, the pressure of losing three in a row, and even talks about his first fight in New York which was unsanctioned.
