Fact is, Edgar is good the first time and even better the second time. However you cut it though, 2 losses in a row to the same person, especially the champion, is tough to come back from. He either needs to go on a streak at 155 to get another shot or drop to 145.
Cerrone vs PEttis is probably the next contender for the title.
To fight to near death against top level opposition and win or to decisively finish top opposition are two different things
Frankie Edgar will never top BJ Penn as the best LW in history , why ?? because he's not as good as Penn was in his prime , Penn was and remains the best fighter to have held the world title @LW , nobody in the sport today (at the moment) looks like changing that maybe barring Aldo , time will tell ..................
