i love the zombie, but in no way (even with this being frankie's first 145lb fight) can you say he's ahead of edgar in anyway..
frankie is a VERY small lightweight and has beat 3 top 5 lw's in his career. he's only lost by decision in each of his losses.
zombie's most impressive win is against poirier and he was ktfo'd by roop (who's also lost his last 2). you can't compare that to beating bj penn, gray maynard, sean sherk and jim miller. you just can't.
for frankie to drop down and immediately get the title shot (especially coming off a controversial decision to the #1lw in the world) makes absolute sense. by his accomplishments he deserves to fight for the belt right away. there's no one else at 145 that even comes close to aldo right now...
