    If Edgar was still champ how he fares against those guys.
    Edgar beats Nate by split dec.
    Gil beats Edgar by UD.
    Pettis finishes Edgar.

    Nate - beats him via wrestling
    Melendez - SD either way
    Pettis - loses via UD

    Sharpish.
    He beats Nate and possibly Melendez. Don't think he beats Pettis though.

    Honestly, I'm a big fan of Edgar, Melendez and Pettis, and I don't rightly know.

    Maybe Pettis beats Edgar by TKO or decision, Edgar UD Diaz, Edgar/Melendez results in a SD not sure for who.

    Edgar easily beats Nate, he'd win every round. The other two would probably be close fights either way.

    Pettis is exciting as fuck but most people thinks that he can KO Edgar? I'm no Frankie fan but i really think he beats them all. Maybe it can go either way with Gilbert, but he'll wrestle Nate and Anthony.

    I think Frankie beats them all. I give Pettis the best shot against him. It depends on how much he has improved his wrestling since the guida fight. I think Frankie is just a bad matchup for him. His speed and wrestling combo would give him problems I think. Edgar got robbed against Bendo in the second fight. He might be the best LW in the world. I think the winner of Edgar-Penn 3 is going to go on a tear at 145 and 155.

    Melendez would be the toughest fight stylistically. IMO anyways I think he beats Diaz with ease and Pettis (without ease) in a close fight.

    Frankie embarrasses Nate like Bendo did, and fights Gil to a controversial decision like Bendo did. Then he UDs Pettis like Bendo didn't. His wrestling is good enough to take every round from Pettis and he's apt enough on the feet to hang in there while they're standing.

    Edgar uses his quickness to win a decision against Diaz, but loses against the other two fighters.

    Predicting split decision is just stupid
