Mendes is not getting the top of the food chain fights, Edgar is tied up with tuf and I might be wrong but last I heard Cub is without a fight. The UFC is giving Mendes middle tier fighters so he can't claim he deserves the rematch with Aldo but keeping him busy so they can hype him up down the road as a guy on a great winning streak. Edgar is conveniently doing tuf against BJ and last I heard Cub does not have a fight. It's pretty simple if you think about it. There taking the 3 guys that have lost to Aldo and keeping them away from him but busy so they can let Aldo clean out the division. He has almost done that and then they will move him up to fight Pettis at 155. I can see it now! Frankie Edgar vs Chad Mendes for the vacant UFC featherweight belt. Edgar is coming off 2 fantastic performances against rising prospect Charles Oliveira and his 3rd win over a motivated in shape BJ Penn who was the most dominant 155lb fighter in the history of the sport. Money Mendes has looked like a killer knocking out opponents left and right and is a very hungry man looking to add Frankie Edgar to his list of victims in this battle for the vacant 145lb gold. Waiting in the wings is Cub Swanson (Insert Hype). You heard it here folks!!!!!!
