Edgar-Maynard 3 was a great fight. Edgar-Maynard 2 was a draw in which one fighter probably sustained long term brain damage and the other got outpointed for three rounds. I did enjoy watching it.

Edgar has a ton of heart, and fans love that type of guy. Edgar is also primarily a point fighter, and fans generally do not love that kind of guy (the most notable exception would be GSP).

Machida was upper echelon LHW, you saw what happened to him. Im starting to think weidman would be competitive with jones.

Frankie, Chris, and I are all triplets from the NY/NJ tri-state area.

Weidman would be competitive, but sure the odds would be in Jones' favor. Jones by tko strikes in the latter rounds.
