    One of my favourite fighters. I mean, the man is phenomenal.

    The fact Edgar went on a huge winning streak at LW (the toughest most stacked division in the ufc), while being the much smaller guy is incredible. And all done in the good old fashioned way. There was no cutting in the line, no cherry picking fights, no "big draw" privileges.

    "The answer" also won the belt by dethroning the LW goat. And then he went on and defended his belt 2 f***** times. One of those title defenses being one of the greatest LW title fights ever, a spectacular come back after almost being brutally KOed!

    After losing his LW belt in a controversial decision, he´s at FW now beating everyone except Aldo.

    Edgar is one victory away from making history and cementing his legacy as one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time.

    I mean, how can you not appreciate this man?

    He won the first fight vs Aldo and the second fight was a lot closer than people claim.

    Rooting for Edgar, but Holloway is too fresh and Edgar falls short in championship fights...

    Would be nice if he won.

    I have watched both fights in slow motion and counted every strike, so I dont really care what other people think.

    How u assume he is done?! He has been in the ufc for 10 years and is still knocking off number one contenders and young prospects all while they are in their prime. Dude has had the best longevity the sport has ever seen.

    I like Holloway and thought it was great when he became champ. He definitely earned it. That said i'd be happy to see Frankie finally get this title.

    Give him enough tries and he'll do it eventually I suppose.
