ESPN is now showing some video love to this Saturday’s UFC 78 bout between Spencer Fisher and Frankie Edgar. As most of you know by now, I believe Fisher and Edgar will each be receiving a $40,000 “Match of the Night” bonus from Dana White.
Fisher believes that the pressure will be on Edgar because he’s fighting in front of the hometown crowd. He makes a valid point that Edgar might feel the need to keep the fight standing in order to please family and friends.
I think true Edgar fans just want to see him win so I don’t think he’s going to play the standup game with Fisher longer than he has to.
I implore anyone who plans on watching this weekend’s show to click here in order to read Matt Kaplan’s exclusive interview with Edgar that was conducted last week.
