I think after he lose, he will drop the bottom and have to wins some fights without decisions.

Beside his win Maynard, he been to decisions in 5 of his last 6 fights. Another GSP in the making.
Get over it.

Frankie probably cried for a shot. Sounds like the rematch with Bendo, he cried for that too.
I would bet that almost nobody outside of hardcore fans even know who KZ is. No way does that fight get people's attention more than Aldo/Edgar.

Lamas is 3-0 in the UFC, defeating Matt Grice, Cub Swanson and Hatsu Hioki after coming over as part of the WEC merger. That's certainly a run worthy of a title shot
I am Jack's slack-jawed incredulity.

How little do you have to care about the quality of your work to put your name on a sentence like that?

This. He's a good fighter and he could use some of the elite fighters on his record (although I don't see him beating any of them).

They should def have asked KZ if he wanted the shot first. If that fight was arranged, I'm not even sure if Frankie would have got the shot straight off. Maybe a little better that it works out this way, but KZ is so popular and seeing him and Aldo mix it up would have been great too.

I get that KZ is up there for a shot, but I really can't see him doing well against Aldo.

Yeah, he's a great fighter with a great fanbase, but Aldo is just another beast mode level.

Have another tok of whatever you been smokin'.. because I am sure KZ has a fan base beyond the hardcore fans...

Wear a Zombie shirt and people wants to know who is that? Wear a Edgar shirt, nobody cares except the Italians..

Nothing to do with jealousy, it has everything to do with the fact every fight Edgar's had since 2010 has been awesome yet people still try to paint him as a boring fighter.
