Yves Edwards was once considered the uncrowned champion of the UFC lightweight division. He left the promotion in 2006 following a loss to Joe Stevenson, but now the master of “Thugjitsu” is back and looking to reclaim his place in the division he once reigned over.

He knows, however, that he’s got to work his way back to the top, but that’s not something he’s averse to.

“I think my style does ensure some kind of job security,” Edwards said at Thursday’s UFC 131 pre-fight press conference in Vancouver. “I just got to put it all on the line. I just got to go out there and fight as hard as I can and try to put it on these guys.”
