I think a top fighter moving down should need one fight to justify his spot but a guy moving up should not be granted the same grace. That said I have no issue with Edgar getting an instant shot since he has lost two controversial fights at LW for the title in a row and is moving down to a shallow division and its not about the credibility of Edgar as a challenger but more so about the fact that Edgar is more credible than any challenger and to a certain extent more credible than the FW champ. Edgar doesn't need credibility to fight for the FW title he adds credibility to the division by fighting for the title.
