Frankie Edgar wasn't even close to dropping to featherweight.

Despite UFC boss Dana White's wish to see Edgar (14-2-1 MMA, 9-2-1 UFC) move down and challenge Jose Aldo for the featherweight strap, the former lightweight champ today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) that he was holding out for a rematch with the man who took his belt, Benson Henderson (16-2 MMA, 4-0 UFC).

"I don't think going out on a loss, especially one that close – it's just not my style, I guess you could say," Edgar said.

Edgar lost a unanimous decision to Henderson at UFC 144 in February, but it was the kind of call that had some fans (or maybe just Edgar people) up in arms about MMA scoring.

Of course, "The Answer" thought he won the fight. But he's moving on.
