Watch: Former UFC Lightweight Champ Frankie Edgar Talks Fighting Yair Rodriguez at UFC 211

The veteran fighter may be on the backside of his career, but he has no plans of laying down this weekend at American Airlines Center.

Frankie Edgar is preparing to step into the ring against the smoking-hot Yair Rodriguez, who is 11-1 and making a name for himself in the UFC. Despite the odds not being in his favor, in the interview he mentioned, “I’m not upset by it, I just have to make sure I don’t let him use my name to catapult himself up in the rankings.”

Edgar isn’t coming into this fight cold either, he has only one loss over his last seven matches, and a championship pedigree. Take a look at Joe Rogan's fight preview below.

The fight is set for May 13 at UFC 211, taking place in American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX.
