    Not only is Conor next but with Lamas vs. Mendes lined up the winner of that fight could leapfrog him especially if Aldo loses to McGregor. There's no one left to fight now either.

    Edgar is fine. He could fight a highly ranked LW to keep himself relevant if he wants. Go up and fight Cowboy.

    I doubt either Mendes or Lamas get a rematch so soon.

    Mendes and Lamas both just fought Aldo, they're not leap-frogging Edgar. In fact, Edgar gets to avoid two dangerous guys, so he's fine.

    If you think HE made that decision I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

    Nah, Edgar gets next unless Conor beats Aldo. Then Aldo, of course, gets his rematch.

    LOL TS thats dumbest thing I have heard.

    Edgar has his top 5 win over Cub. A win over a "Holloway/Lentz" type could get him a TS. In fact, thats what I see happening. Edgar fights one of those two, if he wins, he would be in line for Aldo/Conor (of course unless Conor won)

    I like Frankie but he can't beat Aldo's nullifying style,.

    I'm sure the he could have got another fight scheduled quickly after Swanson. He could have asked for either Mendes or Lamas and got the fight. He couldn't have gotten a title fight but at least he would be assured a high profile opponent and be certain his next fight was a title eliminator, at least for him.

    Instead he waited and will be stuck fighting someone like Lentz or Holloway.

    I'm telling you now, McGregor for the belt was set a while ago. Even his management was saying they hardly had control of when he was getting a title shot. Edgar was told to wait.
