Compliments of Frankie Edgar.
It takes a lot to best UFC veteran and former title holder Frankie Edgar. Yair Rodriguez learned this the hard way at UFC 211.
Edgar dominated Rodriguez on the ground throughout the fight. He was able to get Yair on the ground in Rounds 1 and 2 and was hellacious with his ground and pound.
The referee forced the stoppage at the end of Round 2. Yair Rodriguez’ eye was swollen so much that he could not open it. Take a look at how it looked after the fight:
That’s one swollen eye.
