A while ago i did a piece UFC Champions Poll, BJ Penn

I am rebuffing/redoing this as new challengers and champions have emerged, and BJ as well as Machida have lost their championship

Please do take a moment to reread the old post, at the time it appeared we had written off Frankie Edgar with only 13% thinking he could write history, and a mass 43% believed him to be immortal, I being one of those


Who out of those 5 do you think could beat him? (and please take into account who will fight him next) If Other please leave a comment, thanks.

If you think for example, Evan Dunham could beat him, but you believe Gray Maynards going to be a challenge to difficult, bare in mind Maynards got a fight with him next, so select Maynard. Thanks

Maynard.
Maynard, already beat him and Maynard has a big size advantage that will only help him hold Edgar down to win a unanimous decision.

Man, I really hope I'm wrong, but I think Maynard is gonna be LW champ.

I like Kenny Florians chances.

He has the right style to fight him everywhere.

But unfortunately for Kenny, his days of fighting for the title are done.

I am also of the school of thought that says Florian could potentially beat Edgar. Also, I think people are selling Maynard short if they're not giving him a strong chance to beat Edgar. It wasn't too long ago that he did in pretty solid fashion.

I think the question should be who has the BEST chance to beat him, because honestly I think every single guy on that poll could beat him if they show up at 100%

Gray has already done it, if Sherk actually used his wrestling the way he did when he was a champion I'm sure he could beat him. I also think Florian, Dunham, and Sotiropoulous would all have a shot at beating him too, although I probably would pick Edgar in most of those fights.

Hence the




I think people are selling Maynard short IF they're not giving him a strong chance to beat Edgar.
