Barao is a beast but neither FW or BW have seen a fighter of Edgar's caliber yet. The lower weight classes are weak are not as deep with talent. There is a reason Denis Silver is a fight away from a title shot at FW after a mediocre run at LW, it isn't a size or strength thing but rather the fact that he was fighting in a division that did not have the level of talent the LW division does. Edgar was and arguably still is the top LW. Thing is when his loss of the LW title is debatable and he dethrones the FW king will there be anybody left that cares to see him take the BW title or will it be nothing more than collecting a trophy that everybody already knows he can take?
