Biography(references)Edwards was born on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas and moved to Texas when he was 14 years old. Edwards began training in traditional karate in his youth, moving on to Kung Fu before eventually taking up mixed martial arts. Like many aspiring martial artists, Edwards cites Hong Kong cinema as a formative influence. Based in Houston since his teens, Edwards says he learned some grappling on a trip back home to the Bahamas at the age of 17, although "it wasn't as technical as it should have been, but it was better than not getting anything." He is a well-rounded fighter, with a strong boxing background, having also trained with Lewis Wood, a #6 WBA Featherweight boxer.
Combat ApproachThis was exemplified by Edwards' flying head kick KO of Josh Thomson at UFC 49. UFC Lightweight Dustin Poirier proclaimed himself to be a Thugjitsu practitioner in honor of Edwards. Edwards has stated that UFC Hall of Famer Bas Rutten is his idol.
Fighter Trivia(references)Edwards has a daughter named Destiny and a son named Yvan.
