Sure Edgar beat Penn twice but he just seemed to have BJ's number. He was too quick and had that blue collar output that BJ just couldn't match over 5 rounds. There was lots to love about Frankie but his run lacked the dominant wins for me to put him over Penn.
Edgar beating him and Maynard is more impressive IMO. Plus the fact that Edgar is smaller than every LW he fights is more impressive by far.
Once again though, talk of a LW GOAT as of yet is just plain silly.
