Dana White: Frankie Edgar can get an immediate title shot at FeatherweightPosted on March 1, 2012, 12:53 PM by Anton Gurevich
That's according to the UFC President Dana White, who continued to execute his persuasion tactics, this time speaking at the UFC on FX 2 pre-fight press conference in Sydney, Australia. White agreed Frankie Edgar deserves an immediate rematch against the newly-crowned champion, Ben Henderson, but will get a shot at Jose Aldo's UFC Featherweight title if decides to move down in weight classes.

"I feel like Frankie Edgar absolutely deserves a rematch [against Ben Henderson], seeing as how every time this guy has fought, he's given everyone else a rematch," he said. "Yet, I don't want him to fight at 155 pounds, I want him to go to 145 and fight for that title. And if we do give him a rematch, it clogs up [the division] -- there are other guys that are in line waiting and it's just a big mess."
Frankie Edgar already expressed his desire to rematch Ben Henderson, and a somewhat skeptical approach over a mover down to Featherweight. Frankie Edgar is currently 14-2-1 in his MMA career, after tasting his first defeat since the UFC Fight Night 13 encounter with Gray Maynard.
