Frankie Edgar will have a new walkout shirt when he fights BJ Penn at the TUF 19 finale on July 6. The MMAWarehouse Blog has the first look at what “The Answer” will be wearing when he makes his way to The Octagon.
Affliction has designed a brand new look for the Frankie Edgar walkout shirt, called “The Samurai.” Check it out.
The shirt features the usual crisp detail and quality you would expect from Affliction.
As for Edgar, he’ll complete the trilogy with BJ Penn at the TUF 19 Finale after this season of The Ultimate Fighter is finished. It will be exactly one year since Frankie’s last fight, a unanimous decision victory over Charles Oliveira at UFC 162.
For BJ Penn, this will be his first fight since he fought Rory MacDonald at UFC on FOX 5 in December of 2012.
Edgar turned MMA on its head when he defeated Penn to win the UFC lightweight title at UFC 112. Until then, no one could defeat BJ at 155 pounds. Edgar then beat Penn again in the rematch at UFC 118 later that year.
They’ve been cordial to each other on this season of The Ultimate Fighter, very professional and focused on coaching up their teams as much as they can. That will change on July 6. BJ badly wants avenge the two losses to Frankie, and Frankie wants to prove he is still very much a top fighter in the UFC, one that can still claim a title.
If you can’t wait to get the new Frankie Edgar walkout shirt, you can get yourself a Team Edgar Ultimate Fighter Jersey.
