Frankie Edgar is fresh off of the recording of the next season of The Ultimate Fighter where both him and BJ Penn will be coaches before they clash in a Feathwerweight contest, building upon their already-storied history. After this last season of The Ultimate Fighter, which focused heavily on trying to manufacture drama between Ronda Rousey and Miesha Tate there are a lot of questions as to the direction that the UFC and Fox Sports producers will move towards for The Ultimate Fighter 19, but with a personality like Frankie Edgar, it’ll probably be difficult to get much more than mumbles out of him.
What we can expect is for Frankie Edgar to bring in a lot of his friends and training partners, many of which you’ll be familiar with, into the show. BloodyElbow spoke with him after a wrestling competition this weekend and he discussed who he brought onto the show. [link]
“I brought the guys I work with every day and believe in. I brought in Mark Henry, Ricardo Almeida, Renzo Gracie, Anderson Franca, and some of my teammates, Marlon Moraes, Edson Barboza, and Akira Corassani, so I just brought the guys I work with on a daily basis.”
