great matchmaking by Joe Silva. both guys are great wrestlers so this one is probably going to end up being a stand up war. Edgar looked awesome against Sherk but don't sleep on Pellegrino he's got some great striking of his own.

Don't understand why Edgar is fighting Pellegrino, this is a step down for him coming off a huge win over Sherk. Pellegrino is a tough dude, but he's lost a few fights in the UFC and doesn't really deserve to fight Edgar at this point.

I would've liked to have seen Edgar go up against Florian instead and have Guida fight Pellegrino.

So are they planning on jerking Edgar around and not giving him a shot at BJ anytime soon? Sherk, Franca, and now Pellegrino should merit enough for a title shot, if not they should let him fight Joe "Daddy" for the next title shot.

This is a step down for the Answer, as he's beaten some tough guys who are better than Pellegrino.

Taking the Answer for this one, no doubt about it.

should be a fun fight for us fans!

both good wrestlers, but I think Frankie will pretty much dominate on the feet..and use his footwork and boxing to get a decision here...

I don't get this. Edgar just polished off Sherk who is a superior wrestler and kickboxer than Pellegrino. Don't get me wrong, I like Batman but Sherk is better than him in every aspect of the game and Edgar beat him pretty soundly. I would think that warrants a step up in competition. Please Joe Silva, give "The Answer" a tougher question.
