    Timestamped, logical fight to make. Frankie says Brooklyn makes sense or somewhere in March, possibly UFC 209 card

    Also the fights i would do in FW division:
    Stephens vs Bektic
    Swanson vs Bermudez/KZ winner
    Charles Oliveira vs Brian Ortega (assuming Oliveira stays at FW)
    Barao vs Fili
    Doo Ho Choi vs Diego Rivas

    BW makes sense. He needs to drop and win the belt. Edgar vs Cruz would be amazing.

    Yes. I love this matchup. After this win or lose, drop to 135 Frankie!

    If Aldo moves up Frankie could be 145 champ

    Edgar vs Dom, Killashaw, Lineker, or Rivera would be money.

    Cruz has a lined up contenders in his own division: Cody, TJ/Lineker winner, Rivera/Caraway winner. Edgar never made 135 and i don't think UFC will give him another free title shot. If he wants BW, he shold fight at least once there to prove that he can make weight

    Max is there to stay dude. I don't see Frankie beating Holloway anyway.

    It's a good fight but I don't see the point tbh, Frankie will never get another shot at Aldo.

    Frankie is easily going to run through everyone in the division not named Aldo

    Holloway picks apart Frankie like Aldo did imo.

    Frankie has a better chance at winning the 135 belt imo.

    If Aldo loses to Holloway, Edgar could be 145 champ. Lots of possibilities for these elite fighters but when it comes to the best, I believe things also become unpredictable.

    I'll take your word for it, since his only bona fide loss has been to Aldo.

    Edgar is getting up there in age. He would need to fight Max RIGHT NOW before its too late.

    ... and it might be too late.

    In a post USADA age ... I don't expect too many fighters being champs in their late 30s.
    Romero might soon ... but still ... not many.

    Didn't say he would for sure, but it at least opens some possibilities for him, he isn't gonna get another Aldo fight

    I'd rather see Swanson avenge his loss to Lamas TBH.

    145 is getting interesting with new prospects like Ortega, Choi, and Becktic. Plus you throw Korean Zombie and Chad Mendes in the equation for a title in a year then things get spiced up again. Plus we still have to see about BJ/Rodriguez and possibly Barao if he stops beating cans and starts facing contenders again. Remember he never fought Dom Cruz.
