    I think he definitely can. He's had a whole year to recover from the Ortega knockout so he should be pretty fresh going into this. Max just came out of a war with one of the hardest punchers at LW. You never know how that chin will hold up. I don't think it's cracked, but I don't think he should take that kind of punishment ever again if he wants a long successful career.

    Frankie is definitely the better wrestler & arguably has the cardio edge. I don't see him gassing out like Ortega & Aldo did

    You think he KOs Edgar?

    I think he gets the TKO, within 3 rounds

    I like Holloway. Too bad he has to get Mauled by Edgar. 2019 will be a horrible year for Holloway.

    Max should win this fight, and could finish Edgar. Edgar's past his best, and I think Max is one of the very rare fighters that can match his pace, and cardio, and possibly even exceed it.

    Would be nothing shocking about Edgar winning this; he has the stamina and the wrestling to make it an ugly fight for Max. Nevertheless I think Max is going to piece him up with straight punches from the outside. Key is how much damage Frankie can take when he moves in close.

    Edgar 3 round stoppage. It might look like the Yaie fight.

    After the loss to Dustin, impossible for me to get excited about Max fighting. Sorry can't do it..

    I agree, the Price vs. Neal fight is the only other fight on the card that has the potential to get all kinds of crazy.
