However, the champion once again survived and regrouped in the second round, where he started to pepper Maynard with straights and hooks. By the fourth round, a big hook landed that sent Maynard crashing and Edgar followed up with a series of clean shots that left Maynard face down in the mat and allowed Edgar to retain his UFC Lightweight Championship.
