Frankie Edgar “Annoyed” With UFC 189 Snub

Frankie Edgar WINS
“I was a little surprised by it. Somebody called and asked if I was willing to step in, so I almost wish they didn’t ask me at all, get my hopes up for nothing.

“Not taking anything away from Mendes, obviously he’s a stud and he goes in there, he won his last fight by knockout. But you know, his last two fights he’s 1-1. He has only a one-fight win streak. I have a four-fight win streak. So yeah, I am a little surprised. I think at one point after the Cub (Swanson) fight, or at some point, I was the No. 1 contender. I think it was after [Mendes’] fight with Aldo actually, I was the No. 1 contender. Then all of a sudden, somehow it got flopped.”

Former UFC lightweight champion and current featherweight fighter Frankie Edgar is just a little confused and angry and disappointed and let down. Poor guy. He told The MMA Hour that he wishes the UFC hadn’t even called him if they weren’t actually going to give him the standby job that they gave to Chad Mendes. Do you think Edgar should have been given the next title shot?
