Joe Rizzo: “How’s all the training and all that good stuff going?”



Frankie Edgar:
“Yeah, training’s been going great, you know, man. … Just sort of, you know, focusing in on the attack plan.”



JR: “Bringing in a secret weapon here. We pop in, you know, usual Tuesday at (Ricardo) Almeida and all of a sudden, you have Ross Pearson to play with today.”



FE: “Yeah, you know, Ricardo invited him down here, you know they hooked up about a month ago in Vegas and invited him to come train so, you know, he’s going. .. So it’s just great, man, you know to get the high-caliber athletes to train with. The timing’s perfect.”



JR: “You’re being underestimated again. Everybody thinks that BJ’s the favorite, even though that you are the champ now. Does that enter into your mindset or I know you’re pretty even-keeled guy. Does that ever come up, use it as motivation?”



FE: “You know, desire to win is motivation enough for me. So, whether it’s a title fight, whether it’s BJ Penn or not, it’s just forcing me to bring out the best in myself. BJ is one of the best guys in the world at this weight class, whether our last fight or not. So, I have to really make sure that I come at the top of my game.”



JR: “How much is the game plan going to evolve for this fight? … Are you working on a lot of new, different things?”




FE: “I’m working to improve, that’s my biggest thing. I always try to improve from fight to fight, try to be a different fighter. Of course game plan’s a little bit different. I’m sure he’s going to adjust, so I got to make the adjustments based upon on that so… it’s pretty much going to be like a fight-time adjustment.”



JR: “Tell us a little bit about these few months that you’ve gotten adjusted to being back home and being the champion. A lot more demands on your time for things like this interview and radio shows and appearances, endorsements. How are you adjusting to that part of it outside of the cage?”



FE: “Uh, you know, I’m really lucky that I have good management. Shari Spencer’s my manager for almost a year now, so I really don’t have to handle that too much. She hands it, tells me what to do, and I do it. Obviously there are more demands, interviews and whatnot, but I’m welcoming it, so that’s part of being a champ. It’s something you have to do and hopefully I get used to it, hopefully I have to do this for a while.”

Nope. You're not gonna be doing it for a while at all. Your short title reign is coming to an end.

A pissed off & motivated B.J Penn is a very dangerous man. He has a point to prove, and prove it he shall.

I like Frankie Edgar......he's a classy guy and a credit to our sport........but B.J Penn is gonna dismantle him completely......of this I am sure.

Penn is gonna get whipped

You know!

If the motivated Penn shows up, disaster is in store for edgar...I will be looking forward to seeing new game plans from both with an exciting fight.

News flash: The ability to continually push yourself to improve outside the ring is what makes great fighters great in the ring. Penn lacks that ability.

So tired of hearing that his lazy ass is all that's keeping him from greatness. Know what? My lazy ass is has also kept me from being a great MMA fighter, a great lawyer, or any number of great things.

 I have followed this sport for a long time.



No doubt Frankie has worked harder and made more improvements than the Beej has.




Hope Penn's cardio is up to par.

 If Penn comes in motivated and angry its over early for Edgar otherwise Frankie wins a dec again.
