Frankie Edgar Says He’s Done Getting Screwed By The UFC

FotorCreated 17

Former UFC lightweight champion and top ranked featherweight Frankie Edgar is seriously p!ssed, and he’s had enough of being ‘screwed’ by the UFC. Trash talk from Frankie Edgar?? A lot of it too!

Frankie Edgar once again finds himself in a very tough spot in the UFC, only this time he has a strong five fight win streak behind him. Victories over Chad Mendes, BJ Penn, Urijah Faber, Cub Swanson and Charles Oliveira have ‘The Answer’ as the glowing hot contender of the UFC featherweight division, yet he’s being put on hold for a title shot repeatedly. Many believed he gave Jose Aldo a tough enough fight to deserve a rematch in 2013 when ‘Scarface’ was still champion, and he’s beaten five legit contenders since then.


With the recent news that Conor McGregor would move up to 155 pounds for his next fight following his destruction of Aldo, Edgar once again draws the short straw. With no-one really left in the division to fight whom he hasn’t beaten already, ‘The Answer’ took to Twitter to vent his frustrations.

So why is Edgar being overlooked for a title fight? Is it purely circumstance, or maybe the UFC matchmakers have become hesitant to book him because of his run of decision wins. It would be very unfair if that was the fact, but perhaps there’s an underlying issue we are still to learn about. One theory is that Edgar doesn’t talk enough ‘trash,’ like a Conor McGregor would, well, like his raw knockout over Chad Mendes, Edgar is trying to change that too.
