I assume you're talking about Frankie Edgar?

I think they'd want to hype him up a little now considering his new fan base growing and maybe place him with someone like Dent. IMO the one I like to see is him vs Huerta but that would probably destroy the hype of one of those fighters and that's not good right away since they'll probably fight for the #1 contender spot later anyway.

Edgar vs Ruediger would be a good match-up I think.

Naw man, he mean's Edgor, the bastard love child of Frankie Edgar and Fedor (yes, he's a multiplying cyborg!)

But really, I can't WAIT to see him fight Huerta, Guillard, and even Franca.However, that could be a risky proposition for so much young talent to cannibalize each other's careers this early, so to speak.Good question though, and I don't think I could honestly even take a guess at who they'll match him up with next.

I'm guessing someone making his UFC debut...

Just to think back about Edgars fight. Man he did great. What an awesome fight.

Yeah, I'm definitely not one to jump on bandwagons too early, but he really made a fan out of me quick.If that last fight is any indication of things to come, he's gonna climb through the ranks really fast.

Well I never really consider Tyson Griffin a contender so I'd like to Edgar in a few more fights before you can tag him with contender.

Griffin I think was a little overrated. I really didn't understand the whole tyson nutthugging deal he hasn't beating any big time fighters, other then Duane Ludwig who isn't near to the contented level.

People on the net jump the gun WAY too quick. Let them be truly tested before claiming they will be future champs.

Glad to help.I think a lot of people share that sentiment about him right now.

I think Edgar could end up fighting Stout or Hominick next. Too bad he's not on TUF 5. would have been really good for his career.

He beat Urijah Faber. Arguably the #2 guy at 145 lbs behind Kid. I agree with the poster who said that Huerta vs Edgar would be a bad fight because it would kill the hype behind them. Huerta is going to be the Sanchez of 155 lbs in terms on Dana's Hispanic marketing scheme. Only Huerta has more raw, natural talent, is a better, and actually a good looking guy.

I see Edgar being put up against the likes of Hominick or one of the Lauzons. I would love to see him against Clay Guida though.

I think Edgar and Guida would be a good fight... I want to see more of Clay in the UFC anyhow
