I think I would have Melendez at 6th right now, if he beats Pettis or wins the belt he passes Edgar. I would need to look at their top 10 wins to see how many Melendez would need to pass Edgar with a loss to Pettis.
I like how Aoki makes the top 5 despite being raped by Melendez, and despite the fact Edgar could do worse to him today, yesterday, and the day before.

hes very big for fw

hes 2 inches shorter, but hes got the same reach as benson

aldos so filled out and the cut seems to be taking a toll on him, compared to when he carried less muscle and could fight at a faster pace and never gassed

hes gained easily 5-10 lbs of muscle and he was never a small fw to begin with

Granted, LW has changed since then but I'd give him a good shot vs anyone.
I'd say Edgar is the same size as Barao.

I think he would do well. The division is not dominated by wrestlers like WW is.

K-1 level posting.
