No it doesn't.

Edgar is a bad style matchup for Henderson.

His size is a benefit as he's so much quicker than the guys he's fighting and he's so technical with his wrestling that guys are forced into his leap amateur boxing game.

The reason he was so adamant about staying at 155 is because he knows that if he can take guy's power he actually benefit from it.

He might actually be worse at 145.
