Changing weight classes seems to be the new thing to get a title shot. Had Nate stayed at 155 he probably wouldn't have a title shot but instead he went to 170 to get beat up by some bigger wrestlers. Dropped back down to 155, clowned Cerrone, made Jim Miller bite his tongue off and now he's got his shot.

Then of course you have Chael, Uriah, Sanchez the infamous K Flo but the best name has to be Vera.

Vera's only win that I can remember in the last decade was the fire Marshall (I think the judges gave it to the wrong guy) and he was going to get a shot at JJ had he beat Shogun!

Lets be honest here first....

Aldo has not faced anyone even comparable to Edgar...Aldo has beaten guys with significant short arms...and Hominick who just lost his last two fights..

I know people hate MMA math but BJ Penn would easily beat every guy Aldo has beaten probably with the same outcome...

I have Edgar as the stronger fighter...Better wrestling and make the quick adjustments...People here act like Aldo has some one punch power...He does not IMO....He does wear you down...I think Maynard would flat out kill Aldo...Well it would look like Maynard and Guida....Aldo would run from MAynard...

My worrries are for Frankies first weight cut...and its in Brazil...those two big advantages are huge....

Frankie "Kenflo" Edgar

Aldo via DESTRUCTION!



He can't be Kenny Florian if he has won one of his title shots. I can somewhat understand the Faber Florian comparison somewhat because Faber hasn't won a title in the UFC but I wouldn't compare Florian to Edgar.

No.

But, I'd rather see other guys in the division get the shot. Just wanting it to be fair to them.

What are you being honest about??? That your MMAmath and opinions make people's had spin?

Reason people act like Aldo has punching power, is maybe out of his 21 wins 13 came via KO/TKO.

I dont know how people can be disapointed by this replacement. Im much more excited for this fight, no offense to Koch.

If you consider the fact that Edgar arguably beat Bendo, this is an unofficial super fight
