Moved to the UFC forum. Not really news.

If it was a jab at Frankie then it missed because Frankie had already punched and moved out of reach.
I'm not a fan of BJ, but I honestly don't think it was anything toward Frankie. When explaining his style switch on Fitch he said that his style as of late has been centered around boxing, where he would try to stick and move, and he left behind his old style, and that he wanted to get back to it because with his old style he was a lot more dominate.
If he used take downs against Frankie he would have won those fights. I want to see BJ move back down to lightweight and fight Frankie or Gray.
Yeah, I don't see this as a shot at Edgar in the slightest. BJ, if he's turned the corner everyone has been waiting for, knows what got him to his elite status and it wasn't boxing. BJ is probably taking a shot at himself more than anyone else.
