Reason you think it'd be 49-46?

Once Aldo finds his balls and moves to 155, Frankie is the next champ at 145 - easily. Frankie knows this and is biding his time. I doubt we see him take a fight at 155 until after he's holding FW gold.

Edgar doesn't deserve to be anywhere near a title shot. He also isn't capable of hurting Pettis and will probably get himself KO'D

Frankie would get eaten up on his feet, his style is fine against people who do not kick... But Pettis would be tagging him throughout to the body.

He is so quick, that I think some of those bodykicks would be turned into takedowns for Frankie. I would worry about the headkick though as Frankie is only 5'6.

I like Frankie but I hope this doesn't happen. I'd rather see Pettis' finishes than Frankie's point fighting. I appreciate Frankie's skills but much prefer a finished fight.

This fight would be great and I would love to see it happen in the future. Edgar has the better boxing and Pettis has the better kickboxing.
I have stated many times that Pettis is one the best strikers in MMA. Edgar with his elite boxing and great wrestling is one of the few guys that can possibly beat Pettis standing.
I wish more people would recognise the boxing level of Edgar.

Maybe if Pettis was drugged before the fight.
