    Chad vs Frankie as TUF main event. I don't like this. It's a great match up and most likely gonna be a great fight, but imo they should have given Max the fight with Frankie like he asked. Mendes vs Edgar might be better, but the picking order is ridiculous. If Mendes beats Frankie we'd see him fight for the title again. When right now Frankie and Max are both more deserving. It would mean 3 title shots for Mendes in 5 fights. Anybody with me on this?

    Yeah I would have preferred Holloway/Edgar too. I'll be interested to see what they do with Holloway now. They must have something lined up for him, possibly the Oliviera rematch.

    Yea that's what I'm guessing. The kid's on a 7 fight win streak. They can't pass him over forever. I'd hate to see him get knocked off before he got a title shot like Neil Magny.

    I thought the same thing too. The timing is off for this fight.

    Here's hoping Frankie wins.

    Yeah

    It's an amazing fight but on a shit card

    Not going to watch it.live because it will be at 5am and I rarely watch fights after they've already happened

    I'll catch any highlights on the forum

    If Max fought Edgar, it highly risks ruining a contender. Edgar II or Aldo/Mendes III would sell and both be great fights. I think Max should fight someone like Stephens next just to build his streak up even more and let him get title shot next summer.

    why risk knocking Holloway off as a title contender by matching him with Frankie?

    even if Frankie loses they still got Holloway if Holloway loses his next match they got Frankie assuming he beats Mendes

    now if Mendes wins well that's going to be kinda shit street

    I know Frankie must be hoping Jose wins vs Conor because if he loses Jose is getting an instant rematch regardless how bad the loss is (see Anderson vs Weidman 1, see TJ vs Renan).

    So even if Frankie beats Chad he may still have to fight another opponent.

    I guess the only bad scenario here is if both Aldo and Mendes win. Then again they could rematch Holloway and Olivera and have the winner get the title shot

    Frankie is going to box him up and take him down.

    He's the one who called out Frankie. And either way before he gets a title shot he's gonna prob have to fight the loser of Frankie/Mendes or the loser of Aldo/McGregor. He's not gonna just sit idle for the next yr or more.

    Mendes will beat Edgar and then beat either McGregor or Aldo for the title.
