Frankie Edgar | "I think" 145 pounds "is inevitable"


“We’ll see what the future holds, but I think it’s inevitable that I’ll eventually get down there,”

“I was set on getting this belt back,” he said. “We don’t know what the future holds, but I didn’t want to go down on those terms.”

“I’m all about fighting big fights, and fighting the best guys, and Jose Aldo’s one of them,” he said. “We’ll see where it’s at, whether it’s at 145 or 155.”

“He (Dana) stressed that he thinks for the longevity of my career, 145 would be better,” Edgar said. “I told him I could see what points he was talking about, but right now I wanted the rematch, so he granted it.”

Frankie Edgar comments on dropping to 145 at a recent press event in Atlanta.

Frankie seems to have folded after years of putting off a move to the Featherweight division. Now the question of when remains to be answered.

Edgar is set for a rematch against Ben Henderson this year and if he loses it may be his last outing in the Lightweight division.

How do you think Edgar would do in the Featherweight division, would he be able to bring Aldo‘s reign to an end ?
