lets say Hypothetically The UFC makes Edgar Vs Faber the main event for UFC 176...

who do you got winning??

I love this fight, I see Edgar winning a decision , it would be a close decision but clear frankie won , probably 4-1, maybe 3-2...

I just think Frankie's a better boxer, I dont think faber can take Frankie down and keep him down, same with Frankie...so I think it would be a stand up fight and IMO that favors Frankie


Man I love this fight, I dont think they will make it, but I really hope they do

Yeah I agree Frankie would take it, I thought his stand up looked great in the Bj fight but I think a little of that was how horrible Bj was too.

I think it would be mostly on the feet too, as both are great at scrambling back to there feet. Faber does have the finishing edge but he tends to leap into his punches whereas Frankie throws tight combos, and eventually after 2-3 rounds Frankie would take control of the fight.

I don't see why they couldn't make this, it's an awesome main event at 145. Frankie wouldn't have a size advantage either.

This has been on my wish list . I think Edgar is better overall version of Faber but that guillotine could steal one for Faber.

What a fun fight this would be. I like edgar to win but it wouldnt be easy, especially if faber came out to take it to him early.

Edgar would be way to much for Faber and I'm a big Cali Kid fan

The event is making money in ticket sales
With a month left.

I highly doubt they scrap this event
They will make more money then the other 3 fight nights that month. Plus ppv buys.

Don't be surprised if by tommorrow a announcement is made for the main event

At this point I think it will be Edgar vs either faber or Swanson

Add they will add lewis vs mirtione to the card as well

Come on Joe Warren. Get real this would be fantastic match.

Both guys are WAY better than the real Joe Warren. And much more exciting too.

FACT!!

As for the fight is take Edgar 9 times out of 10. Edgars speed is right up there with Faber.

Edgar is used to fightin much larger fighters. Edgar would have a wrestling and boxing advantage as well.

This would be a great, exciting fight tough.

I would predict 49-46 the score in a 5 round fight.

I love this fight. Its the type of fight that the guy who makes the best in fight adjustments is probably going to win. I suppose thats any fight but these guys would have one another guess I think its a great fight.

JW is more entertaining then both these guys...better? Maybe not. That's up for debate.

Curious why all the hype on Frankie Edgar all a sudden, what he beat up and old and out of shape BJ Penn? Faber vs Frankie would be good, but now there is rumor Kid is going to fight Faber now. Either way, would be exciting, just not as exciting as several fights up to come in 2014.
