    Great main event for an unusually stacked TUF Finale event. I guess this means we're getting a Holloway/Oliveira rematch?

    I'd like to see Frankie win as I didn't like all the excuses made after Mendes lost to McG.

    I still feel Mendes will win though. He did quite well vs Aldo.

    Edgar's gonna run rings around Chad. He's a faster, better conditioned version.

    Pulling for Chad, but I think Frankie takes it.

    I hope this one goes better than Edgar vs. Faber. Sick fight on paper. On paper.

    My brain says Frankie wins this with the wrestling being neutralized and him popping Chad with shots over the course of 5 rounds.

    But I have a feeling Chad will eventually hurt Edgar and get a tko. Edgar's footwork is ever-improving but he's still very hittable and with the reach being so close, he's going to have to get into Chad's space in order to land. And while he was able to move in and out cleanly with Faber, I believe Chad to have the better footwork and standup between the two.

    I'm just fucking excited really.

    they should have done edgar vs holloway.

    If mendes wins, I really don't wanna see him fight for the title again.

    Chads footwork is almost non existent and Edgar's is one of the best in the sport.

    Whoa didn't see this coming. I think Chad knocks out Frankie but I'm picking Frankie to win via decision.

    HOLY ESO****US! This is my dream match @FW! I think Chad will snap his loss streak but you'll never know. Very even intriguing matchup!

    It would be two straight losses, Chad ktfo Lamas before fighting Conor.

    I think Edgar vs. Holloway would've been better, I'm guessing he gets the shot if Chad beats Frankie.

    I was still editing when you quote me I think. I agree Mendes most likely stops Edgar but I'm still picking Edgar.

    Hell yeah. I really hope both guys come out to scrap and it doesn't turn out to be a boring 5 rounder
