“The Answer” is once again in the title hunt at 145 pounds following his victory over Charles Oliveira at UFC 162. It was Frankie Edgar's first three-round bout in four years. The spirited featherweight and former lightweight champion looked as potent a competitor as ever.
Edgar was more than Oliveira could handle. To his credit, the 23-year-old submission artist held on strong and survived a third-round beating that would have left lesser fighters on the floor.
Frankie nabs another win in his already impressive career. No sooner was his hand raised than a flood of questions came pouring in. What is next for Edgar? Should he receive a title shot? Is 135 pounds a possibility?
Five plausible potential bouts sit in front of the featherweight contender. Only time will tell which, if any, he chooses to take.
