Edgar ready for title shot but needs to wait

Frankie-Edgar-10Frankie Edgar after his submission win over Matt Veach Saturday expressed his feeling on him and the Lightweight title. With the win Edgar believes he is next in line for a Lightweight title shot but I think he is forgetting one thing or should I say one person. Edgar at Ultimate fight Night 13 was defeated by Grey Maynard and in the imaginary line to the title Maynard is ahead. Edgar though has rolled off three wins in a row against Franca, Sherk and Veach and should be considered right there in the mix.

Maynard though though is set to fight dangerous Nate Diaz next month at Ultimate Fight Night 20. Should Maynard win that fight then he should fight the winner of BJ Penn and Diego Sanchez next week. If Maynard were to lose though Frankie Edgar should be the next one in line. Either way we should get a Lightweight title fight sometime around May of 2010.

My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
