    Stephens called him out, Max wants to fight him too (since it is the only logical fight for him, assuming Conor/Aldo 2 happens)

    So who do you want to see at UFC 205
    Edgar vs. Holloway or Edgar vs. Stephens ?

    vs Holloway for the next shot , especially if Conor beats Aldo - Frankie's time at 45 isn't done, though if he loses that fight (which I do not think he will) - he probably should drop to 35

    Holloway should fight for the title.
    (aldo Vs holloway, conor isn't going down to 145 ever again)

    Edgar Vs Stephens sound real ggod to me.

    my rating for that fight.
    9/10

    book it now.

    Its a tough spot for Hollaway because he more than deserves a shot but can't get there. I say put Frankie vs Stephens and for Hollaway.... im not sure

    I'd say Stephens. Being down 0-2 to Aldo, who could very likely end up becoming FW champ via Conor's refusal to drop back to FW, puts Edgar further away from title contention. Holloway is on the rise and is the #1 contender for the Aldo/McG winner, imo. Stephens, tho also rising is at similar place as Frankie. A win for either is a big step towards contention. I think it makes for a quality fight as well making sense as far as where they sit in the division. This is all under the assumption Frankie doesn't dip to 135.

    I hate to keep Holloway on ice for a while but man, after a 9-fight win streak it just seems unfair to say "Sure, you can get a title shot. Just beat Frankie Edgar."

    Yeah I know he has been against the move but I think it's time. A get feet wet fight there would be good for him. Maybe against Caraway.

    Holloway VS Aldo (Thinking Conor wont be back to 145 or it will be awhile for him to lose the weight)
    Edgar VS Caraway at 135
    Stephens VS Doo Ho Choi

    If he cant beat frankie then a title shot likely wont do him much good.

    Not sure anymore. The FW is in a awkward situation right now due to Conor going rogue, Mendes on hold for 2 years and Edgar with a big loss. I saw Edgar and Stephens only because I want Holloway to fight Aldo. He deserves it whether he can pull the victory off or not.

    Cruz/Edgar? Id watch

    Max vs Frankie sounds good since Max is waiting for the shot but what if Frankie were to win? Frankie has had two cracks at that belt. Id say get Jeremey Stephens a big fight vs Frankie and see where he is at and put different contenders in place...

    neither, frankie would beat both so why kill off contenders before aldo-mcgregor 2 plays out? if aldo gets the belt back no way frankie is getting another shot so climbing the ladder again is pointless

    I don't know if I would favor him versus Cruz in his first real weight cut for a fight.

    Holloway should get the Aldo/McGregor winner.
    Frankie should drop down to 135lbs.
