    What do you guys think? Both Chris Weidman and Frankie Edgar are looking for fights for the Brooklyn card. The card already has 9 fights on it but with Aldo/Holloway up in the air it could use some bolstering. Do you think the UFC finds matchups for them or will they be kept off the card?

    If so, who would you like to see them fight?

    I think Edgar vs. Lamas & Weidman vs. Mousasi/Whittaker would be awesome. What do you guys think?

    Weidman should probably take another year off.

    Well, I only see three fights that can be on the main card:

    Holm/GDR
    Glover/Cannonier
    Lewis/Browne

    Everything else announced should be a preliminary card or below. I see/hope for Aldo and Holloway/? and perhaps one of Edgar/? or Weidman/?

    Weidman would kill Frankie!

    Bad match-up.

    Edgar vs Lamas is a no-brainer.

    Id like it but I think the UFC is just waiting on Rockhold to get healthy so they can rebook that fight.

    Weidman needs to take time off for his health. Guy is a family man and took some serious damage the last 2 fights. He's need to stop chasing the belt.

    If they are able, and want to fight.

    Sign em up. Those are two big names. It took a long time to get mma in NY. If local guys want to fight. Make it happen.
