    Default Edgar wants five round main event vs. Swanson

    Edgar wants five round main event vs. Swanson - Mixed Martial Arts News


    Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion and featherweight title challenger Frankie Edgar is looking to get back in the win column sooner than later, and "The Answer" believes Cub Swanson is the right man to help get him there.

    On Tuesday's edition of "UFC Tonight" on FUEL TV, correspondent Ariel Helwani reported the New Jersey native would like to fight Swanson in a five-round UFC main event on a FUEL TV or FX card later this year.

    Edgar (15-4-1) is riding a career-worst three-fight losing streak after back-to-back defeats to current 155-pound champion Ben Henderson and then a subsequent loss to featherweight champ Jose Aldo at UFC 156 in his 145-pound debut earlier this month.

    All main events are 5 rounds, title fight or not.

    I dunno how Frankie would do in a 3 rounder any more.

    He hasn't fought in one in what must be close to 4 years, and he always seems to lose the first round or two

    That's why he wants it five so he can run around the whole time trying to tire out Cub

    It would be a good fight but it doesn't make much sense right now. Swanson is close to a title shot, and Frankie just lost to the champ so its too soon for a rematch. I suppose it might open up for Aldo vs Lamas.

    You make it sound like all he does is run, the guy is a very active fighter, period.

    if edgar were to lose...they cut em? i mean, sure they shouldnt, and the fights were close, but thatd be 4 in a row...(i know it wouldnt happen, but im just sayin)

    I'm sure he would want to fight the number #1 or 2 contender in the division when he himself isn't even ranked in the top 10.
