Where does this put the Answer though if he wins? He's already beaten much tougher competition than Batman, yet lost to The Bully.

Regardless,

WAR ANSWER

Edgar has come so far since he was supposed to be fed to tyson. I see him winning a dominant decision

Great fight for sure. I look for Edgar to keep it standing with his wrestling and Ko Kurt somtime in the 3rd. But it will be a war of a fight!

I like Edgar to win impressively.

I'm a big Pellegrino fan, but I find it hard seeing an outcome of this fight with Kurt being the victor. I don't think it will be as dominant as most people are saying as Batman is a game opponent but I think I see Edgar taking the decision here.

I agree this will probably be a lopsided decision or a TKO for Edgar. He basically does everything Batman does but better.

He doesn't have near the submission skills that Batman does. That being said, he's a better wrestler, which will probably end up winning him the fight.

Frankies the man!!! Better striker with better wrestling, so I definitely think he out works Kurt for a UD. Should be a good fight to watch. Hopefully Frankie can get a tough contender in his next fight to set up another huge test so we can see if he could geta title shot! Hopefully a UD here, then Florian!!!! Or event Joe Daddy.

Yeah, Joe Daddy seems to be the gatekeeper to being a contender and Edgar would beat him handily. I can't shake the feeling that this is a big step down in competition for a guy trying to prove he deserves a shot at BJ Penn. I would have liked to see him fight Nate Diaz, Clay Guida, or even Huerta.

As for Batman having the superior submission game I would agree he has a better offensive submission game but Edgars sub defense would negate anything that Kurt could offer in their fight. So again, there's nothing Pellegrino brings to the table that Edgar isn't superior at.
