Jose Aldo and Possible Opponents for Frankie Edgar at Featherweight
Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar has decided to drop to featherweight for his next bout, according to Ariel Helwani of UFC Tonight, and would like to fight before the end of the year.

The career move opens up numerous doors for Edgar, who had always been considered undersized at 155 pounds, and behind each of those doors stands a new, unfamiliar opponent.

There is speculation that Edgar will receive an immediate title shot at 145 pounds, but nothing is set in stone or even written on paper at this point. Therefore, finding out which opponent will welcome Edgar to his new divisional home will only be achieved through everyone's favorite pastime.

The waiting game.

Let's take a look at the eight fighters who form the list of possible opponents for Edgar's first tussle in the featherweight division.
