Frankie Edgar put on another epic performance at UFC 144, but it wasn't enough for him to retain his title this time, as Benson Henderson captured the lightweight title in a narrow decision.

Now, the former champion will have to make some decisions on what the future will hold for him. While Edgar seemed to shrug off questions about moving to featherweight after the loss, UFC president Dana White was all for the idea.

"I've been asking him to go to 145 for a long time," White said at the UFC 144 post-fight press conference. "I would love to see him move to 145. I think he'd a force to be reckoned with there, and I think he'll be a great challenge for Jose Aldo."

After such a close fight, a rematch with Henderson could be an option for Edgar, but White hinted at giving former WEC champion Anthony Pettis the next shot at the 155-pound title.

Let's take a look at what should be next for Edgar and the rest of the UFC 144 competitors.
