Edgar eager for rematch with Henderson
DENVER (AP) The deep cut on the bridge of Frankie Edgar's nose has long since healed, along with a swollen left eye that turned a nasty shade of purple.
There's another wound, though, that just won't mend - the blow to his pride from losing his lightweight title to Benson ``Smooth'' Henderson in a UFC bout last February.
Immediately after that loss, Edgar turned lobbyist, suggesting he deserved a rematch after such a tightly contested fight.
For nearly two years, Edgar was the king at 155 pounds and granted instant rematches to those he had beaten.
And so now it will be for Edgar, who faces Henderson at UFC 150 in Denver on Aug. 11.
