    Is TUF 22 the one currently being coached by Urijah and Conor?

    Edgar by hard fought decision. His pace will outlast Mendes

    He should. It's pretty obvious why this fight is being booked.

    These fights lately make no sense

    Yeah, it's a good fight but it's kinda stupid matchmaking

    It makes sense depending on the angle you're looking at it from.

    Conor fans are already praying for Chad.

    Edgars MMA wrestling is better in my opinion. Edgar in transitions is also better.

    Awesome fight. Frankie is taking this, but this will be "full camp" Mendes, so who knows?

    It's very obvious to anyone except a certain fanbase.

    UFC must really not want Conor vs Frankie.

    Thank god, I'm glad they didn't go with that ridiculous idea of Edgar vs Stephens. Edgar should be facing the very best fighters for the chance to face the winner of Aldo/Conor, not a crowd pleasing midcarder.

    One of the best fights on paper to me. I can't wait for this one.

    I think that's part of it, but I also think they just dont want frankie in another title fight. So, how do they do that? put frankie against the toughest guy possible, the toughest stylistic match up possibe, and hope that guy (mendes) knocks frankie off. Oh, and since Mendes already had multiple shots at a title and a shot at an interim belt, they wont have to worry if he wins, they can just give the title shot to Max and say "Mendes has had his chances"

    That's how I think the ufc thinks.

    Edgar is the rightful number one contender. Even if Chad took the Conor fight on short notice and not at optimal conditions, he still lost. The fight to make is obviously Frankie Edgar vs Max Holloway.
