Last season, UFC lightweight champ Frankie Edgar spoke to the New York Jets on the eve of their pivotal game against the Texans. Their come-from-behind win put them in first place and helped them get to the playoffs.
The Jets have another important game Monday night. They face the Miami Dolphins, and need a win. New York sits at 2-3 and have to come up with a win to keep pace with the Patriots and the Bills.
According to MMA Fighting, Edgar visited with Rex Ryan's team on Sunday night. The timing makes sense for Edgar, as he just came from behind again in a bout with Gray Maynard. This time, he won by KO, which is something that the Jets will want to do to their division.
But against the 0-4 Dolphins? They really need inspiration to take out the team whose coach is on the hot seat? With the Patriots and Bills on their schedule in the next few weeks, they may be going to the Edgar well a bit early.
