Edgar doesn't need credibility to fight for the FW title he adds credibility to the division by fighting for the title.
Also keep in mind that this is actually a fact, not an opinion.

Agreed. Strictly from looking at their records, Edgar is more proven than anyone at 145 including Aldo.

Who has a better chance at beating Jon Jones right now?

Chael Sonnen? Or Chris Wiedman?

I get that Aldo has the better win/loss ratio and has established complete dominance, but his level of competition just flat out is not as good as Edgar's has been. Aldo has some good wins, but they don't equal Edgar beating Penn x2, Maynard, Tyson Griffin, Jim Miller and Sean Sherk.

155 is just a better division with better fighters than 145 by a long shot.

Weidman. Although things would get interesting if Chael P. were able to put Jones on his back.

It's a bummer to think that this weekend we'd be getting Aldo/Edgar had Aldo not gotten hurt. Does anybody know when he'll be good to go, or if Edgar plans on fighting in the meantime?

Edgar has beat the better competition, but I need to see how Edgar can go at 145, will his speed hold up, etc, I think or at least hope it will and he'll be bringing down more power and he'll be getting many more stoppages down at the lighter weight class.

I don't know if Edgar needs more power, he finished Maynard and hurt Bendo. The power was there at 155 and as long as he doesn't lose power or cardio at 145 I don't see anyone in the division that can stop him.

Sonnen easily. As everyone knows I'm not a massive Weidman fan, but he still is solid in some areas but Jones is better in them all. There is a chance, like in the first Anderson fight, that Sonnen can put Jones on his back for all 5 rounds and not even get tested by the stand up. I actually think Sonnen has a great shot to beat everyone who isn't a good submission fighter, and I just have a feeling that Jones wont have strong submissions off his back.
