Frank Edgar: "BJ Penn Is The Best Fighter In The Lightweight Division."

Really good interview with Edgar. I'm really starting to like this guy. He's a class act.

Frankie Edgar is a great fighter with a ton of heart. I think he should fight either Huerta or Florian for #1 contendership

Frank Edgar is the man. He reps Jersey to the fullest and is a bad dude in the Octagon.

Real good interview and I can't wait to see him get a chance to fight for the title. rep+

He's beat Mishima, Robinson, and Din Thomas since then. Take away his loss to Sherk and he's 6-1 in the UFC. His other loss was to a much bigger Diego Sanchez. So to say Florian isn't near title contention is wrong. He's on a short list of 3-4 fighters who should be considered.

Sherk, Florian, Edgar.

Ur stil forgetting he JUST had his shot be4 Franca. n which 1 of those that he beat is a top contender? Huerta should fight Edgar for #1 contndership. Give Florian vs Guida n c how he does ..

And im not saying hes not near contention. Im saying he doesnt deserve a shot or #1 contndership now.

With the exception of Din Thomas those last two wins are not that impressive to me. Those are the kind of guys Huerta was beating and catching so much heat for but when Florian beats them they are legit wins? On the topic of Din Thomas, he blew out his knee. It wasnt Kenny's fault but he did so I do not consider that much of a win either. I think he needs one or two wins against guys like Tavarres, Griffin, Huerta, Guida, Spencer Fisher Vs. Kenny would be cool, or Edgar to get that number one contender spot, But I do think he deserves to be in the running for the number one contender spot

Coming from a guy who lays and prays as much as sherk I'm not surprised to hear that. I think BJ, Florian and Huerta could beat both of them to be honest.

And how can he say that after the whole Steroid scandal?
