They are both top 4 in the World IMO along with Aldo and Curran.
Edgar has proven more when it comes to MMA wrestling scoring takedowns over Aldo,Penn and Maynard. Mendes couldn't get Aldo down at all.

I would definitely watch it though. I think Mendes is easily top 5 at FW and deserves to be fighting the best. Not messing around with people like Cody McKenzie.

I think I like Elkins to win this one, don't forget this guy also beat Cub Swanson and Pat Curran. He will have a significant size advantage and he always game plans well.

I like how Joe Benavidez who is what? A top 3 FLW? Who will probably fight for the title with a win. And they put him on Facebook? When he has headlined WEC, fought for the UFC title...

How do fans of the FLYWEIGHTS, Women's, and even lower classes expect people to respect the divisions when the UFC doesn't even respect them?

He beat Curran but I don't think Elkins and Swanson have ever fought each other.

Didn't he beat Ludwig by like a freak injury or something?

This is a good fight. Elkins deserves a step up in competition because of the run he has been on, and Mendes shouldn't be kicking around any more cans since his loss to Aldo. I was worried about Mendes getting a gimme fight since Guida got injured, so this is good news. I think Mendes should win, but Elkins is a durable and smart fighter. This could be very interesting.

I think Ludwig hurt his foot or ankle or something but it was really early in the fight if I remember correctly.

He broke it from Elkins taking him down, I don't know why it would be a mark against Elkins for injuring Ludwig. It wasn't like he stepped on it wrong or he broke it throwing a kick he got thrown to the ground and it snapped.

It's not really a mark against him, but it certainly didn't show who the better fighter was.

Elkins via channeling my dislike for Team Alpha Male and releasing a spirit bomb.
