UFC 136 Results: Top 5 Challengers For Frankie Edgar's Lightweight Title

UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar proved his dominance in the division last night when he defeated the only fighter to ever have a victory over him, Gray Maynard, at UFC 136.

Edgar survived another early first-round knockout from Maynard to fight back in triumphant fashion, eventually finishing the fight with a knockout of his own in the fourth round. With that win, Edgar has now pushed his record to an impressive 14-1-1, and he has not been defeated in over three years.

Though it appears that he may be the next long-running champion in the UFC, Frankie Edgar does have the tough task of competing in arguably the most stacked division in the company, with challengers seemingly coming from every corner of the globe looking to take his title.

It might be difficult to picture him losing his title anytime soon, but these five potential challengers are all looking to play the role that Frankie himself played when he upset previous champion BJ Penn in April 2010.
