Edgar via domination.

Seriously doubt huerta would even win a round.

yea edgar would out wrestle huerta, just like guida as doing, except i would expect edgar to work the ground a bit more, and i dont think huerta would catch him with anything, i'd take dgar via UD

Man this would be a great fight! I'm not sure there would be any domination on either side though. As I think they remind me of each other. Although Edgars wrestling is probably a little better. I would be routing for Huerta in this one boys.

edgar by UD

Well i dont rate Edgar that much higher than Clay Guida tbh

I picked Clay and would have to pick Edgar for the same reasons, but Huerta does seem like the kinda guy who will find a way to win or make a late comeback and get the W

Hopefully Huerta got the wake up call from his last fight and is now training off his back and working on his sprawl. The LW division is stacked with wrestlers and you need a solid ground game to compete.

I was never a huge Huerta fan until his last fight. The heart he showed really impressed me. But Edgar is an even better wrestler than Guida, and if Guida was able to dictate the action so well throught the fight (until he got knocked around and choked), I would bet even more domination from Edgar.

Edgar's composed wrestling > Huerta's wild standup. Huerta is the Forrest Griffin of the lightweight division. He's fun to watch and can win fights against decent opponents, but not technical enough to beat the best or hold a title.

Edgar's a small lightweight whereas Huerta is a large lightweight. You could see from the Guida fight that even though Clay was taking Roger down, he was getting right back up (i.e., Guida had trouble holding down Huerta).

I wouldn't be very surprised to see Huerta win this fight. I cannot doubt Huerta since he really proved himself in the Guida fight.

Frankie got caught by Bocek but I think that was mostly because Frank wasn't expecting it since Bocek is better known as a grappler. So I think he would be aware of Huertas wild striking and hold his ground with good boxing that frustrates Huerta. Which will help Frank set up the TD and GNP the rest of that round.

Frank by clear decision.
