    Anyone else feeling a bit sorry for Chad Mendes? The guy is about to fight Frankie Edgar after coming off of two wars with Aldo and Mcgregor.

    After December this is what his schedule will look like:
    Aldo
    Lamas
    Mcgregor
    Edgar

    Can you think of a fighter in UFC history with a tougher 4 fight stretch?

    There's only one thing left to say: when did Chad Mendes sleep with Joe Silva's sister?

    I'd feel bad if they were making him rematch Cody McKenzie. But straight back into a contender match? Nah I think he'll be alright.

    Edgar will send mendes packing to bantamweight. He would probably crush the unskilled champion of that division.

    No. A win here puts him in line for either another title shot, or a #1 contender fights against Holloway.

    Edgar has had far tougher stretches: 2 times Penn followed by 2 times Maynard (keep in mind they were on top of the LW food chain back then) followed by two times Bendo.

    I don't feel bad... He called out Conor and he called out Frankie. He's getting what he wants. I think he'll get outboxed by Frankie pretty easily after the 2nd round and then go back to tko'ing bottom top ten guys and work his way back up to a title fight from there.

    UFC knows Edgar would easily beat Holloway. THey want to be protect Mcgregor as much as possible from Edgar as he is his toughest matchup so they gave him Mendes, which is his toighest.
