so not very long then lolHow long have ypou been watching the sport bla bla bla. This is a 37 year old Edgar, a waterdowned version of his former self.
Edgar is getting the 'long serving and good company boy' title fight and you know it.
He fought for the title and was totally outclassed by Aldo. Had a couple of good wins and then was ko'ed by Ortega.
Then beat Cub Swanson who has lets be honest, been pretty average for 5 years now. And that win was wasn't a super convincing one anyway and now he gets a title shot?
I am telling you Max will run rings around Edgar
About 10 years since UFC 100. So depends on your opinion of not long I guess.so not very long then lol
Edgar is only getting the shot because he has quite a lot more followers. If Volk had the same following he would no doubt be the one fighting. Unfortunately this isn't like the Olympic games where the most worthy get their shot. The ufc will do what is profitable for the business. Hopefully they promote Volk a lot over the next few months.About 10 years since UFC 100. So depends on your opinion of not long I guess.
But you are kind of agreeing with my point, that being Edgar is getting this title fight for being a long term servant rather than a current worthy challenger
My thoughts are - if he loses then he's not the most worthy person of a title shot. Simple.Would be great for Cowboy but if Tony loses his title shot after being the most worthy of a shot in history it would be.
Are you talking about Tony?My thoughts are - if he loses then he's not the most worthy person of a title shot. Simple.
If he does lose and still get the next shot, then he's in the same boat as Frankie Edgar IMO. Semantics aside anyway..
To be fair, he did fight for the interim belt and won it but then spent the next 16 months or so sidelined due to injury. Khabib was every bit as deserving as Tony, so I don't blame the UFC for keeping the division moving. The only thing I'd fault them for was giving Conor first crack at Khabib over Tony, but the reasons why that happened are obvious.Are you talking about Tony?
I can’t agree if so, he was worthy a number of fights ago, how does he have to keep fighting every other contender?
Tony’s winstreak far betters Edgars
The ref is hopeless, he shouldn't have stopped the first fight by the rules, didn't know to look for Shamrock's tap as you said.See that tapping, ref...that means you stop the fight.
