* UFC 125: Resolution

The first UFC event for 2011 is the second title defense for UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar against Gray Maynard. Gray Maynard is the only fighter who beat Edgar in his career and they finally fight, Edgar got rocked in the first round but managed to survive and get back and win the next rounds but it was a sad decision that it was a draw. So something to look forward to is the part 3 of Edgar and Maynard. Brandon Vera also lost against Thiago Silva it was sad because he got cut from the UFC after his third straight loss.
