I would let him fight against either Miller or Guillard to determine who will be the next contender after Pettis.
Edit: I think he has good chances against Edgar if he could stuff his takedowns. But it would be hard.
I think Siver may already be next in line, who knows.
I think Maynard gets beat-up in the rematch and that left hook won't be there for him. Edgar showed, atleast for a brief moment, how piercing and dangerous he can be with GnP. And he's evolving too fast. Lightning takedowns.
After that, I think (the new) Gulliard has the best shot for the belt. If he fails, it's all Edgar for a while breaking BJ's record.
Miller and Siver won't be able to hang in there as Edgar sets the pace in a championship fight. Pettis is overrated and lacks power to do any damage (IMO). Ditto Donald Cerrone and Alvarez and Melendez (if they sign with UFC).
I think Edgar and Aldo beat up 5-6 more guys an set-up a super-fight between the 2. Similar to Silva V GSP.
