    I wanted to make a poll, but I didn't know how to. I want to know who you guys think is the more skilled fighter. I think when you compare them skill for skill that Edgar has the edge. His boxing, his footwork, his striking defence, his wrestling, his work in transitions are all better than RDA's, his top game and BJJ are just as good as RDA's. I think that RDA's only advantage is his kicking game and his power.

    Edgar is much more skilled (top 5 p4p ever for me), but compared to RDA and Conor, he's tiny. RDA is probably the harder fight of the 2 considering he's a natural LW and Edgar is smaller than some BWs

    It's hard to compare somebody against Frankie as far as being well rounded and expect them to win

    Hard to say...

    I DO think Frankie has the better resume, though.

    Probably Edgar. I would give him the edge technically in striking and wrestling. RDA would take Ju-Jitsu. RDA is much more powerful, however, and I would certainly favor him in a fight with Edgar.

    Edgar maybe, but Rda would smash him. Too big, too strong. Edgar gets hit a lot and those pitter patter punches wont do shit to a savage like Rda.

    Hard to say who is better. Both are extremely skilled but in different areas.

    Frankie Edgar - wrestling/boxing

    Rafael Dos Anjos - BJJ/muay Thai

    Two great fighters. Completely different skills and styles of expertise

    They're both close in skillset, but if you add heart and toughness, it's Edgar by a mile.

    I wanna echo the statements for Edgar, even tho I believe RDA wins a fight. Edgar is the technical fighter, but RDA has more power in all of his techniques.

    Edgar has better MMA boxing, but RDA has a more lethal overall striking arsenal. Edgar is probably a better p4p wrestler, but RDA is much bigger and stronger so that even it out in that department. And Id give RDA a slight edge in MMA Bjj.

    And if Conor beats both, it's Khabib. And it goes on, and on, and on....

    Are you stuck in 2010-2011? Edgar hasn't been hit hard for years. His defense stats are some of the best in the UFC.

    Based on what? I'm an Edgar fan but what makes you think he has more heart or is tougher?
