Cruz is done. It's someone else's time at 135 now.

I want Edgar to be a long reigning champion. Sadly it won't happen at 145 pounds. Move down to 135!

He'd definitely be champ at 135.

Frankie beats Cruz with relative ease I think. I've never cared much for or thought much of Cruz to begin with.

Aldo is a different story. People are saying Frakie is going to win convincingly but I think Aldo possesses too much speed and power for Frankie to handle.

People seem to be discounting Barao.

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?

So what if Frankie loses all these fights? He already lost two in a row. WHat if he doesnt beat Aldo? 3 loses in a row? Thats not really a positive spot to be in.

I would really like to see who said frankie is going to beat aldo convincingly if anything the majority of fans are saying ALDO VIA KTFO, i'll take aldo by decision because frankie is beyond tough to finish.

If Aldo's weight problems are as dramatic as some say they are he really doesn't want Frankie hanging around for too long.

If and it's a big IF, he beats Aldo. I could see him getting the FW title. And it's a real possibility given Frankies weight. And it would be a glorious achievement, but he's got a couple tough fights to get there. I don't see it happening, but if the stars aligned, it could happen.
