Frankie Edgar Says No One Else Should Get A Title Shot Before Him


Max Holloway became the undisputed UFC Featherweight Champion when he defeated Jose Aldo in the main event of UFC 212.

While his first title defense his yet to be announced, former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar says that no one else should get a title shot before he does.

“There is no one else,” Edgar said on The MMA Hour. “C’mon. There’s no one that makes sense more than me, no one that’s done what I’ve done to get it.”

Edgar has had two shots at the gold before, coming up short twice against Jose Aldo at UFC 156 and UFC 200.

Cub Swanson has also made waves about getting a title shot, but Edgar believes that he should get one first over the other featherweight contender.

“I don’t see how he’s in consideration, you know?” Edgar said. “Since me and Cub fought, I’ve fought nothing but top-10, top-five guys. I don’t think he’s fought anyone in the top 10 and he’s also lost a match since then. So I don’t think how that’s even, you can’t even compare the two.”

Swanson and Edgar have collided inside the Octagon before, with Edgar coming out victorious at UFC Fight Night 57.
