    Do you think Max is coming back too soon? Usually the guy who wins comes back sooner because he is the one who seemingly took less damage. Their fight was obviously a war but its crazy to me that Max is coming back sooner than Porier. Do you think Max was able to heal up well enough for his fight with Edgar or is he coming back too soon?

    We'll find out saturday. Personally I think him vs Edgar is a huge mismatch so he should be fine.

    Exactly, this is a "recovery" fight for Max, whereas Poirier has a tough fight coming up.

    The only reason Holloway is fighting sooner than Poirier is because Dustin has to wait for the end of Khabib's suspension.

    Medical suspensions are there for a reason.

    Not really, it's just more to do with when fights are booked and what events they fit on, the Dustin and Khabib one they needed for September time.

    Venue's, places they're selling the tickets etc.. all that comes into play where as with Max and Frankie, it's just a good fight for that event too.

    It's been around 3 and half months since the Dustin fight so I reckon he'll be ok, win or lose it's because of the fight I reckon.

    Frankie's only been finished once his whole career, I know that was recent so could be a sign that he's at the tail end of his career but given the calibre of fighters hes fought and never KO'd I don't think you can ever count him out

    Poirier is waiting for Khabib. Not like he wouldn’t fight sooner.

    Max took him a fine ole drubbing that's for sure. His brain cells decreased by at least 45 percent that night.

    Especially with Max coming off a loss in which he took a lot of damage

    I like Frankie, but lets be real, this is an easy win for max. Frankie is not known for his punching power.

    People really think Frankie's easy to beat? He won't give up, his chin is hard and his pace is outstanding. Max will probably win, but let's be real, Frankie ain't that easy to beat. If Holloway makes it look easy, then he gets close to being a FW GOAT

    Frannkie can crack. His fight with Mendes showed that. Also who knows how well Max recovered? He took an absolute beating in his last fight and absorbed hundreds of punches to the head.

    One good shot from Frankie could scramble Max's already injured brain. We will see how it plays outs but those not giving Edgar a chance are silly. He has a great style to fight Max. Boxing angles, endurance and work rate with good wrestling to keep Max honest.

    I give Frankie a 40% of winning when you consider all of the factors.

    Max’m effort. He was fight hard to the end. Dustin neutralized , slowing down the pace and countered well. Dustin had size , Frankie will not. But Frankie has a matching gas tank so should be fun.
