    At this point in time you can't honestly be surprised anymore.

    If there's one thing the UFC hates to do, it's put Frankie Edgar in title fights...

    That was sarcasm. Edgar probably gets the winner.

    UFC is nothing more than a glorified WWE.

    Frankie had a shot, he'll get another. Aldo/GOAT is the best matchup you could have at FW. Aldo finally faced with a different challenge than a wrestler who thinks he's a boxer.

    UFC owes Aldo a BIG payday. Aldo wants the fight. The fans want it. No problem.

    Hendricks vs Lawlor is a different story. I think only Hendricks wants that. Hope no one buys it.

    UFC would be even less legitimate if they based all of their matchups off of journalist-made rankings.

    This. is it really hard to understand?

    At the same moment people are bitching about the Lawler v Hendricks rematch, they are calling for either a Mendes/Aldo or Edgar/Aldo rematch. I don't get it.

    I'm personally sick of rematches.

    Connor/Aldo is a bigger fight than anything else they can make at FW.

    Rankings help and give context, but what makes you think they are the be all end all manner of granting title shots? Shouldn't the UFC also consider fights that fans want to see? At this point it's clear Conor has legit earned a shot.... So has Edgar, but it doesn't mean if conor gets the shot now , Edgar is fired. Quit crying

    Exactly, Aldo has cleared out the majority of his division already, so fighting ranks #2-10 is really not that much different for him right now. a challenger with an interesting style paring and a legit record has come to the top half of the rankings so why not? I don't understand anyone's objections. Edgar had his chance and he will get another one whoever wins... I'd rather see a new fight than another rematch also.

    Life isn't fair. Frankie got his title shot coming off two losses.
