With the biggest featherweight fight in MMA history set to go down in 24 hours, Frankie Edgar (pictured) didn’t want to be left out of the conversation.
Edgar submitted his application for top contender by putting Chad Mendes down with a one-two combination in the opening round of Friday’s main event at UFC Fight Night 80.
After eating some big leg kicks early, Edgar landed a right hook and a left to Mendes’ nose that dropped him.
Following Edgar’s fourth straight win, UFC president Dana White promised Edgar the winner of tomorrow blockbuster between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and interim champ Conor McGregor. Then again, ask Miesha Tate what a promise from White is worth…
The TUF 22 Finale took place inside Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada.
