On that note....
Joseph Duffy submitted Conor McGregor in under 40 seconds in 2010. Now he's signed with the UFC.

I'm not saying Conor is anymore deserving, it's just more interesting to me.
Frankie can fight Mendes or Lamas, at least that will cut down the number rematches in the division. Don't you want to see him fight someone else for a change? And if Edgar wins against Aldo? ANOTHER immediate rematch.
TBH I think Aldo is almost done with the division, and I think he'll go up to LW soon if he doesn't lose.
We've argued about him before? Yes, I'm a Frankie fan. But I'm a realist. Which is why I'm asking, if not him, who? Especially IF Conor loses.
I don't disagree about Conor being more interesting. And I haven't REALLY cried "travesty" about him getting the next shot. Because I get it. But it is definitely questionable.
I don't care about Frankie fighting someone else though. He's almost always going to be in against an elite fighter (Bj was once! HA!) so to me it will always be worth watching.
As for fighting Mendes or Lamas....the guy just beat the "#1 Contender" and now he's supposed to go backwards? Makes no sense. And if he fights Mendes, and Mendes wins, is another Aldo/Mendes fight any better? This fast? When Mendes is 0-2?
Makes more sense to me for Lamas and Mendes to fight each other but even then, you're limiting your potential title contenders and that pool is already shallow in the division.
But I agree with the last point and moreso, I WANT him to go to 155 already.Edited by illphillip - 1/9/15 at 9:06am
