I'm dying to see Mendes vs Frankie. Just to see how it would play out. I lean Mendes but I want to see it.

That would be sick, but I think Edgar sacrificed the majority of his advantages at LW when he moved to FW. He isnt going to be able to run circles around the top guys at FW like he did at LW (I dont mean that in a negative context at all, the guy is a beast at LW).

This division has quickly become one of my favorites. Aldo and Zombie are two of my favorite fighters. I'm genetically required to root for Connor McGregor. It's just a fun division.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Definitely Pettis. He lost to Guida, who is basically a poor man's Mendes. He'd take down Pettis at will and keep him there.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

chad mendez isn't even top 5 and arguably not even top 10

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

The biggest phenomenon in MMA today is otherwise knowledgeable fans hyping a fighter after he beats a few scrubs in a row. But Mendes is definitely top 10. He's beaten Koch, Yahya, Swanson, and Elkins... He's got a lot of cans on his resume but there's some talent sprinkled in there. He's definitely not "the man to beat Aldo" or anything.



Also my favorite MMAmath right now is "Pettis got beat by Guida who is like Mendes [somehow?] so Pettis would definitely get beat by Curran."
