personally i would rather see someone who finishes fights get a shot than just dec. wins. for example: i would much rather see the winner of Kos vs Daley get a title fight over Fitch.
Hmmm, I do agree with you on that... But Edgar has 7 fights in the UFC and only finished 2 of them, thats only 1 more finish than Maynard has.
-(And if you really want to break it down. Maynard had a submission locked so deep against Huerta, that it would have finished any lesser LW. Also, Edgar's last finish was against Veach who took the fight on relatively short notice and was taking a major step up in comp.) but none of that really matters...
Edgar got the shot over Maynard, because Maynard looked horribly sloppy in his win over Diaz, Plus his last two fights have ended in split-dec.
