He just wants to win the fight...
Frankie Edgar recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his fight with BJ Penn at TUF 19 Finale and more. Check out the highlights:
On a headline that claimed he wanted to retire Penn: "I never said I wanted to retire B.J. That's not my style. My goal is just to make sure I win this fight, and whatever B.J. decides to do with his career after is nothing based on what I say or do."
On wanting to finish Penn in the fight: "I always want to show improvement, and that's my goal. B.J.'s never been finished; he's been stopped once between rounds. But he's fought the best, so for me to do that, that would be a feather in my cap."
On his TUF experience: "I didn't have a miserable time. I thought the crew was great; the guys I had were great. It was all in all a good experience, but I don't want to sit out a year again. Just based on the fact that you're got to sit out for a long time before you can fight would make my mind up that I don't want to do it again."
