Though former UFC lightweight champ Frankie Edgar has always been labeled as an undersized 155er, his relatively small frame clearly worked well for him during his run in the division consider his success over larger opponents such as Gray Maynard, Sean Sherk, and B.J. Penn. Now, with his 145-pound debut looming in February, Edgar thinks the same will be true as far as slimming down to make the featherweight cut off.
Edgar recently spoke about the weight-cutting process and expressed confidence in his ability to make 145 pounds without sacrificing the same strength/energy many fighters experience when dropping down.
“I don’t think I have to diet for this fight. My conditioning is always there. The week of the fight I like to be still training and worrying about the fight itself, not just the weight cut.”
Edgar is scheduled to face featherweight champ Jose Aldo at UFC 156.
