POLL RESULTS | Who is more deserving of a title shot, Diaz or Edgar?


In our latest BJPENN.COM polling we wanted to figure out who you thought deserved to fight newly crowned UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson.

The UFC is going with a rematch against former champion Frankie Edgar, but the talk of the MMA world is Nate Diaz.

After completely dismantling Jim Miller on Fox, Nate Diaz became the only man in history to finish the New Jersey contender and as such many believe he is due his title shot.

UFC president Dana White came out and said that Nate will wait for the winner of the Edgar vs. Henderson II fight, but should Nate have to wait? That’s the big question!

In our poll the fans conclude that it should be Nate Diaz and not Frankie Edgar that faces off with the champ in the next UFC lightweight title bout.

It wasn’t even close.

65.9% of voters thought Nate Diaz should get the next title shot and 34.1% voted that Frankie Edgar is owed a chance to regain his title.
