Yeah that would be cool... That's different then actually headlining a UFC PPV so I could totally see that.

That was what he mentioned last night during UFC Tonight so that'll probably happen if he gets his wish.

I'm pretty sure he can dominate almost everyone outside of the top 5 at both LW and FW in 3 round fights. He has proven that he is an elite fighter no one has given Aldo or Bendo as much trouble in the UFC.

YES!!!! I hope this gets confirmed! Swanson has looked outstanding in his last couple of fights. Cub wants a title shot and Frankie is coming off 3 losses in a row so both guys will be looking to make a huge statement.

I would give Edgar the slight edge, despite him coming off 3 losses - they were all razor close and they were to champions.

If it turns out we get Edgar/Siver instead I would take Frankie easily.

Lets keep in mind Frankie has a fresh start, is 0-1 at FW. if he was 0-3 at FW then he would have no right fighting Cub. Who would you rather see Cub fight?

I'd rather see Cub vs Lamas since Pettis sniping away the title shot.

How close is KZ to being back? I haven't seen anything definitive about it, just hopeful speculation.

Yeah nothing really out there that's definitive. That I can find anyways. I hope to see him back ASAP but it's hard to book him without knowing more about it.
