Last chance for Frankie to make a run for another title shot. I like both guys, not sure who i want to win.

Cub should try to use his kicks to keep Frankie at a fair distance, otherwise he is getting punched and wrestled either to a decision or a t.k.o.

Slight edge to Cub in the striking department, massive edge to Frankie in wrestling. To me this is a no-brainer.

I'm a massive FE Homer though, so what do I know.

Cub struggled with Siver and Jeremy Stephens, two former LW washouts.
I think Frankie takes this confortably.

People have forgot how good Edgar is.

His GNP looked vicious in his last fight and I think just now we're seeing Frankie at his best, 49-46 UD here, superb boxing, good wrestling, iron chin and cardio for days. Cub will make it a damn good fight but Edgar is too good.

Frankie is going to take this fight. might be close for the first round or two, but Frankie is going to dominate him for the last 3 rounds

I think Frankie will win.

Striking wise, both guys should be even. But Edgar will definitely hold the edge on the ground.

With that said, the winner for this match should be named the No.1 Contender. A win over Edgar or Swanson is far more deserving of the title shot then a win over Silver (if McGregor win).

People are pretty sure Edgar takes this. But Cub really is a guy who can finish any fighter at any point in the fight, It's not like people have not been able to hurt Edgar in the past... and this is a true finisher he is fighting, unlike Benson or Maynard.

I think Edgar can take the fight in every aspect but cub is always dangerous, not sure who to root for in This fight because both deserve a title shot and both deserve another crack at Aldo. I thought Edgar should have gotten to he nod in the first go around with the champ and Cub deserves to have a legacy outside being on the receiving end of that flying knee that is the highlight of Aldo's highlight reel.
