From the sound of disappointment in the voice of Frankie Edgar, it would seem that the former UFC lightweight champion is likely headed to featherweight. While nothing was announced after Edgar’s loss to Benson Henderson Saturday night at UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II, “The Answer” seems ready for a change.
“I’m moving on,” Edgar told FightLine during the post-fight press conference. “Dana (White) ain’t gonna give me another title shot, I’ll tell you that much.”
Edgar felt like he had done enough to wrestle back his title from Henderson, but when the scores were read, it was “Smooth” who had won in the mind of two of the three judges.
Both the “Red” and “White” judges scored the fight 48-47 for Henderson, giving him rounds one, three and four. The “Blue” judge scored it 49-46, giving Henderson only the first round and Edgar the rest.
