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.”
