If Maynard becomes champ, he may never get another shot for as long as he remains champ, he would be waiting for something out of his control in Maynard to lose, how often to fighters get to face each other 4 times in there career and in such a stacked division, How may chances by right should he get to beat him, because sure if you just keep throwing him at Maynard time and time again, even if Maynard is 70/30 a better fighter Edgar's lucky day will come, so as far as I am concerned if he falls 2:0:1 behind in this battle, that should be it his days of facing Maynard should be over except maybe for some late nostalgia battle late in both there careers once they both lose Contender/Champion status, but till then we should just accept that right now in there prime Maynard is the better fighter, and thats the bottom line because the Shark Said So
That's a good point also.

But i don't see the LW division being ruled by one fighter. NO F*IN way!

It is the most stacked division out there and it's gonna become even more stacked once the SF LWs make their way in the UFC. the likes of Melendez, Noons (i hope), Mesvidal or Thomson.

Plus no. 1: i hope BJ decides to drop down to 155. That's his natural weight and now he can't really complain about the lack of talent in the division like 2-3 years ago.

Plus no. 2: i hope Aldo makes the move up to LW until 2013.

Just imagine: BJ vs Aldo, BJ vs Pettis, BJ vs Melendez, Pettis vs Melendez, Miller vs Pettis, Edgar vs Henderson. To this add: Guida, Soti, Siver, Guillard, a fit Sherk and all the other contenders.

This is *new thread material worthy*.

I'm drooling --->

The UFC LW division will be insanely stacked!

If i were to make a joke: ZUFFA could create a separate fighting organisation based on the LW division alone. LOL

But he never won in the black belt division at the Mundials, which is certainly a different level to any below it.

Remember Edgar threw BJ around and off his feet (moreso than most elite level WW wrestlers could do to him) and he also had the better of Maynard in the wrestling department in their rematch so your last sentence doesn't add up?
