    Maynard vs Diaz was dull and Maynard, at that time, said he'd probably rather not fight BJ Penn.

    mostly because he dominated sean sherk when that really meant something

    and because almost all of maynard's fights were considered very boring.

    not to mention, two of gray's wins were very close and even controversial (especially the diaz fight, I thought it was an outright robbery)

    Obvious answer is that Maynard/Diaz was a terrible fight and Edgar came off a dominating performance against Sherk and finished Matt Veach (late replacement for an injured Kurt Pellegrino).

    Because Frankie wanted the fight and Maynard didnt. After the Nate/Maynard fight, Maynard was asked about fighting Penn for the title his answer was "BJ Penn's a cool dude man, I was with him on TUF and he was a cool dude man. He's a funny dude man" and never properly answered if he wanted the fight... he ducked that fight hard.

    Because he clearly lost the first fight and complained his way into a rematch then never did anything to clearly beat Bendo, catching his kicks means nothing if the kicks already hit you and you don't do anything to follow up once you've caught it.
