The Texas native and fighter will be taking the ring at the upcoming Fight for Troops event. Edwards is scheduled to go toe to toe with Cody McKenzie, in the third annual event that helps raise funds for U.S. Military Troops.

Originally Yves was set to face Melvin Guillard, but due to a change in schedules in the 11 bout feature, his opponent was switched. Recently speaking out about facing McKenzie in the ring, here’s what he had to say about the fighter and his signature choke out:

“I’m not going to die in a guillotine,” Edwards recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio. This ain’t the French Revolution. You just avoid those types of positions. That doesn’t mean you don’t pass his guard, or you don’t get in his half-guard and try to elbow his face in.”

“I’m a whole lot better and still just as dangerous. I’m fighting because I want to be the best in the world. I want to make a run at that.”
