Though UFC Lightweight Champ Frankie Edgar Walks Around at 160 Pounds, He Isn’t Considering a Drop to Featherweight Just Yet


(Video Courtesy of YouTube/TheGarv)

Kevin Garvey from TheGarv.com caught up with Frankie Edgar over the weekend at Lou Neglia’s Ring of Combat and he touched on a number of topics with the UFC lightweight champ.

One of the most interesting tidbits came when “The Garv” asked the New Jersey native if he has ever thought of dropping down to featherweight considering he’s a relatively small 155-pounder. Edgar replied that he would probably have no problem making the 145-pound weight limit as he typically walks around at 160, but his focus is on clearing out the lightweight division right now.

It’s interesting to note that in spite of being smaller than many of his opponents — most notably Sean Sherk, BJ Penn and Gray Maynard – Edgar has been able to use his speed and wrestling to negate any size advantage they may have had.

During the interview “The Answer” also talked about his rubber match with Maynard, the prospect of fighting the WEC and Strikeforce’s best lightweights and how he feels about a potential rematch with sometimes training partner Jim Miller, or any teammate for that matter.

    Yeah he doesn't want to drop to featherweight because he knows Aldo will destroy his boring ass. Aldo is too quick to run from.

    feather weight division is weak thats why faber got a title shot every other fight, it by no way compares to the dept of the 155 division. now that alot of 155ers are dropping down to 145 with of fear of a pay cut Aldos little party is gonna be cut short

    asking the UFC lightweight champion about the possibility of moving down to featherweight has to be one of the more worthless questions ever posed in an MMA interview. He's not a middle-of-the-pack toiler struggling to stay relevant, he's the effing champ

    Isn't dropping a weight class what you're supposed to try when you can't really hang at your present weight class. "hey there mr. CURRENT Light weight champ, don't you think maybe you should drop down to '45? I mean the competition is pretty tuff at '55, I'm just sayin'."

    I think Edgar is in an awesome position, because he is the champ at 155, and has a hell of a chance of getting past Maynard based on the last four rounds of their fight. But if he loses, 145 is a bit shallow, and he could move down there and give Aldo a hell of a fight. Aldo is a bad dude, but I wouldn't underestimate Edgar.

    he might do it if he wins the maynard fight to hold to belts in two different weight classes at the same time. i doubt the baldfather would want that though.

    it'd be tough to defend belts at two classes, even if he was successful, with five round fights and the resulting medical suspensions.

    Edgar would be able to make 135 after he loses a leg to Aldo, lol.
