NFL Star Tuck Calls to WIsh Champ Edgar Good Luck

N.Y. FOOTBALL STAR JUSTIN TUCK CALLS UFC® CHAMP FRANKIE EDGAR IN JAPAN TO WISH HIM GOOD LUCK
TUCK AND N.Y. TEAMMATES WATCHED EDGAR’S VICTORY IN HIS LAST FIGHT AS INSPIRATION FOR CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON

Las Vegas, Nevada –Just hours before weighing in for his main event bout against Benson Henderson from the Saitama Super Arena in Japan, UFC® lightweight champion Frankie Edgar received an unexpected call in his hotel room. Calling the room of the 30-year-old Toms River, N.J. native was none other than New York Giants star Justin Tuck.

Tuck, still reeling from New York’s championship win earlier this month, called to wish Edgar good luck before his highly-anticipated Pay-Per-View title fight tomorrow night. Having watched Edgar’s knockout victory over Gray Maynard at UFC 136 as inspiration before a big game this past season, Tuck and his teammates wanted to make sure Edgar knew that he had their support when he steps inside the Octagon® in Japan.

“I really appreciate Justin reaching out to me in Japan,” Edgar said. “It means a lot to a kid from Jersey who grew up watching the Giants. He said they were all rooting for me tomorrow night. It definitely got me even more motivated.”


UFC® 144: EDGAR vs. HENDERSON will air live on Pay-Per-View in North America on Saturday, Feb. 25 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The card also features former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson battling Ryan Bader in a special four-hour, seven-fight Pay-Per-View broadcast.
