Frankie Edgar Talks About His Start In The Underground Combat League
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.03.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Frankie Edgar (16-4-1 MMA, 10-4-1 UFC) spoke about his start in MMA, fighting for the Underground Fight League in New York, one of several promotions to start up in the state where MMA is technically illegal. Edgar will fight BJ Penn (16-9-2 MMA, 12-8-2 UFC) at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale in Las Vegas on Sunday. It airs on Fox Sports 1 at 7 PM ET.

On fighting for the UCL in 2005: "There were no rules. "We didn't weigh in. There were no rounds. The gloves I used in the fight were the gloves I was training in for the last four weeks. We just showed up and fought."

On what it felt like: "It felt more like a street fight than anything. But I'd been in my share of those."

On getting his orbital bone broken in the fight: "My sinus passage opened up, and my whole face swelled up with air. My eye started drooping. I could feel the air between my skin and skull just crackling."
