UFC Eyes Memorial Weekend For UFC 130 And Edgar Vs Maynard III

News today via MMA Weekly that the UFC could be looking at Memorial Day weekend as a likely landing spot for the third fight between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard. The two fought just ten days ago at UFC 125 in the night's main event for the UFC Lightweight Championship. The fight is rumored for May 28 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The UFC has used Memorial Day weekend for marquee events pretty regularly over the last three years. With UFC 84, UFC 98 and UFC 114 all previously being hosted on the holiday weekend, UFC 130 would be a nice continuation of the tradition. The only road black could be the broken nose Edgar suffered during the fight, but the end of May should give him enough time to properly heal up.

Hopefully we see this trilogy end in a decisive victory. I'd be willing to watch a fourth fight between the pair, but would these guys be willing to fight it?
