So all of a sudden Edgar is a "natural 135er"?

    He should give 135 a try but doesn't deserve instant title shot.

    Dude is small as fuck, I have no trouble believing in that. He doesn't deserve a title shot though and Cruz would smoke him

    His coach has ALWAYS said Frankie would have fought at 135 if such a division existed when he started.

    I don't mind if he gets an immediate title shot at the BW belt. the clear #1 contender is TJ and that fight just happened. frankie is very strong everywhere and can absolutely beat Cruz.

    Cruz is like Edgar with a lot of coffee.

    Edgar needs to get KO'd to realize his gatekeeper status.

    Cody is getting a title shot before TJ or Edgar, so long as he defeats Mizugaki

    He does because he should have got his title shot at FW but instead they fed him to Aldo again.

    Cruz vs Edgar FTW

    This fight is a fight fans dream. Winner gets TJ.

    He's the 2nd best FW imo he would also beat Cruz and TJ.

    Edgar would have some cool fights at 135 but I don't think Cruz would be one of them.

    I don't see it as a fight fans dream. I see it looking a little bit like Edgar/Urijah with Edgar this time being the man a slight step behind. Obviously different styles at play with Cruz in the mix, but I don't see an astoundingly exciting fight unraveling if it happens.

    I like him at 135, as far as instant title shot, I dunno.
    Wouldn't be out of line with the usual matchmaking and contenders being passed over.

    Given that they offered him title fights at 135 lbs before, this is not a new development. He's basically a bantamweight although in the new anti-weight cutting UFC, he may not be anymore.
