Frankie Edgar has spoken out about his knockout loss to ‘The Korean Zombie’, and the former lightweight champion appears to not be dwelling on his decision to take that short notice fight.

“It was something I did,” Edgar told “You can’t go back and dwell on sh*t you can’t change anyways. No regrets for me.

“Obviously, I wanted a different outcome, but I took the opportunity. It didn’t go my way. Sh*t happens, but those are the breaks. I was definitely depressed for a little bit, a little down on myself, but you move on. What else are you going to do?

“He caught me with a good shot. I’m sure I’ll look at it and I’ll be a little critical of something I did, but he’s on a tear. He’s been putting dudes away for a long time…”

Now Edgar is looking to the future and he’s returning to his original plan of dropping down to bantamweight for the first time.

“I’m going to go down to bantamweight. That was the whole plan before this obviously. The cards have been stacked against me my whole career being the smaller guy. Going out there and fighting in Korea on short notice, that kind of stacked the cards even more.

“I think what I need to do is put myself in a favorable position to win my next fight, and that’s at 135.”
