Yves Edwards scared of guillotines? “This ain’t the French Revolution”

Apparently, it’s not easy to avoid getting caught in a guillotine choke by “The Ultimate Fighter 12” cast member Cody McKenzie. Just ask castmate Aaron Wilkinson, who fell prey to the choke in the show’s finale, or the nine other fighters who have done the same in McKenzie’s three-year pro career. A lot of guys would tear out hair fretting over the possibility. Yves Edwards (38-16-1 MMA, 6-4 UFC) is not one of them. It’s hard to scare him about a move he’s been doing since McKenzie (12-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) was watching Sesame Street. “I’m not going to die in a guillotine,” Edwards recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). “This ain’t the French Revolution.” Edwards is next to contend with McKenzie’s long arms and good grip when they meet Saturday at “UFC Fight Night 23: Fight for the Troops 2,” which airs live on Spike TV from Fort Hood in Texas.
