Mike Constantino, one of his trainers, believes Edgar might be “The Answer” to Penn’s reign when discussing the match up with MMAWeekly.com recently.“I think Frankie poses a good shot,” said the AMA Fight Club head instructor, but he wasn’t giving up any secrets. “I can’t really get too far into it because my opinion is a strong opinion and hopefully it’s the right opinion, so I really don’t want to say why I think he can beat B.J.”

Thats what I'm scared of but I sure of hell can't come up with a way he could beat BJ so al the power to em. Bj's not like Sherk, he's not going to come after you with his striking like Sherk so Edgar won't be able to easily counter him. BJ's a counterfighter so Edgars gotta be careful, Edgars got speed though, I jst dont know. I love watching Frankie fight, a big fan ever since the Griffin fight. I hope he does well, I hope it's a freakin war!

I hope this fight between Frankie and BJ is like what I thought Diego vs BJ was gonna be- A WAR!

I have a feeling that BJ is just gonna dominate Edgar again...
IMO: Edgar should force BJ to work off his back.

Other than a good punch, I dont see how edgar can win this fight. Bj has the power, speed and counter punching to match edgar. Along with good TD defense and then good BJJ if he could even get him down. It prolly wont make it past the second or the third, tko for BJ.

I can't wait for the day when a trainer says that his fighter IS afraid of his opponent.

I think Edgar can take BJ to a decision, especially if his gameplan is to box with him.

Seriously I mean what is he suppose to say before the fight? How is he suppose to hype this up?

"Yea my fighter over here, he's scared sh*tless of BJ and that title shot. Infact today in the locker room, he was saying f*ck it mine as well walk in the ring and fall on my face no reason to let BJ make ground beef out of it."

Anyhow I hope its a war as I like to see it but... BJ wins by domination.

Should be an interesting fight but I wouldn't be as scared to stand up and bang with him as much as I would be if he took Frankie down. Frankie isn't horrible on his back but BJ is a monster. He just passed Kenflo's guard like is was nothing so thats where I think the fight will be the scariest for Frankie. Frankie is a great wrestler but BJ will be very hard to take down and also has great take downs himself.

That's the worst idea for Edgar. Being in Penns guard is no fantastic alternative, but nobody at LW is going to outstrike BJ.

who said he woud outstrike him?

He's just not going to be able to take BJ down, so it's better not to waste the energy on that and try to kickbox your way thru the fight.

No one at LW is going to take him down either, so it's pretty much pick your poison.
