Maynard Says Adrenaline Dump Effected Him Vs. Edgar, Lessons Learned
MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer
After fighting back and forth for 25 minutes to kick the year off at UFC 125 on January 1st, Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard were left without a winner, instead, their title fight being declared a draw by the judges.
The two will meet again this October at UFC 136 in Houston, TX and Maynard, who walked away from the fight without UFC gold, talked to Cleveland.com about the lessons learned and what he DID walk away with following the draw:
"It wasn_t that I got tired. I had that adrenaline dump. All your hopes and goals and everything you could ever hope for, that you trained for, is right there. It_s happening, you know? And you see it. And then it doesn_t. It hits you and you_re drained. Afterwards, you_re like, _What happened?_ You feel lazy. Your arms feel heavy. Your legs feel heavy, and that_s how I felt after the first round. You learn from it. Now I know."
