    Just finished watching Pat defend his title and thought him and Edgar would be a fantastic match-up. Discuss who you think would win and why.

    Sorry if this has been posted before


    First thread ever, hopefully more to come. I'll promise to try and think of original ones since i've seen plenty on the same topic.

    I like Curran but, I do not think he should be even mentioned with the likes of Frankie Edgar at this stage of his career. Pat Curran is very good but I think Frankie Edgar has the advantage pretty much everywhere. The potential is there though, Pat Curran can get better in fights to come.

    If you're referring to Curran also I assume you didn't just watch his fight and get at look at his opponent's face. Curran does damage, just because fighters are quick doesn't mean it is a boring fight.

    Whats with all the people posting in the UFC section about Curran being the top featherweight in the world?????

    Edgar would wreck curran at this point.

    Well, it should be in the UFC section since the fight would happen in the UFC, I don't think he is the best either, his boxing just reminded me of Frankie and I thought it would be a good fight.

    Edgar by dominance. Big fan of Curran but I doubt he stays on the feet very much against Edgar. Curran struggled against lesser fighters like Joe Warren and Marlon Sandro before getting nasty KOs.

    Frankie would win. He has too much movement and curran usually stands still. Look at his Alvarez fight. It could go similarly to that.

    Frankie easy UD
    Curran is too inactive and Frankie has been in there with much harder hitters

    Edgar would win, but no he wouldn't "dismantle him".

    Curran could easily hang in there with Edgar, especially at 145. His TDD is outstanding and so is his striking defense
