    What matchup do you think will happen? Do you think it will be at 194?
    Edgar vs. Holloway on the 194 would be epic!

    Stephens can crack, but I think Edgar destroys him. Easy fight for Edgar.

    Holloway instead please. FW and MW title fights and eliminators on the card.

    Stephens didn't even make weight last fight he doesn't deserve Edgar at all

    Much rather see Edgar vs Holloway

    I would be surprised if UFC doesn't try to make a show in Hawaii with that as headline, sounds like a solid plan

    I'd rather have Stephens/Faber, honestly. Edgar can either fightn Holloway or the winner of Aldo/Cobbler.

    Insurance for when Aldo pulls out.

    That's true, but Stephens hits really hard and Frankie has been known to get hit by big shots sometimes. He has a punchers chance.

    Anyway I'd much rather see Edgar/Holloway.

    Holloway is the only fight for Edgar if he wants another title shot. Holloway is the #1 guy outside of Aldo/McGregor in the division.

    Good fight and a dangerous one for Edgar, I think he's the clear fav and should win but Stephens is very dangerous.

    Olivera will rematch Holloway

    Stephens is a dangerous opponent for anyone, especially if he connects. Would rather see Frankie put in as a backup if one Aldo or McGregor pulls out with an injury.

    Good to see! I'm glad the UFC has fighters in place to step in for both title fights in case of injures.

    Edgar via dominant UD and it won't be remotely close.

    Stephens is awesome but Edgar is just THAT GOOD.

    I thought Bermudez was offered a rematch with Stephens, given the insanity of their fight and Stephens' failure to make weight?

    Edgar should fight Holloway on the same card as Aldo/McGregor in the event of an injury in the main event.

    Ah yes, the fight no one was asking for.

    Stephens was a big IV user, I doubt he even makes 145 his next fight.
