True. It's just not a logical move by the UFC. Edgar would receive an underserved title shot if he wins. Maybe they are trying to make Bermudez vs Conor if Conor wins against Poirier for next title shot

Beat the #1 contender and you should become the #1 contender. So if Edgar were to beat Swanson, it's far from undeserved.

An impressive dominant victory gets a title shot, if it's a close decision just another win.

I agree with this. Frankie hasn't done enough since losing his last title shot.

It's the fight against Swanson that's undeserved. No sense in talking about "what if" he beat Cub.

But the guy he was replying to was talking about if he wins the title shot would be undeserved.

This. What an idiotic move by UFC. Edgar might just win over Cub, destroy his title shot against Aldo and we already saw Aldo vs Edgar.

Completely stupid match up but hey, its the same company giving us MM vs Chris "One Punch KO" Cariaso
