although this is lame it is the least lame of the options. i mean i dont agree with this but it is still better than watching gray fight for the title. and like someone else said a lack of contenders is the reason behind this. I just wonder how the division will be able to grow without bj. i wish they would have given rampage an immediate rematch against forrest because that was pretty much the same situation but oh well.

huh? his last two wins have been split decisions, 6 decisions in a row and in the ufc he has knocked himself out as many times as he has knocked out his opponents ... sounds exciting to me ...

Give Matt Wiman a shot. I know he is not even in the top 10 probably but he always delivers great fights that typically take home fight of the night.
Plus I am a bit biased since he is from Tulsa.

Wiman's fighting on the Liddell/Franklin card. I agree that he's a really exciting fighter

Makes the most sense at LW right now.
Everybody knows BJ is a better fighter than Frankie.

It was a Fluke, BJ didn't show up, Frankie did, whatever,
they fight 10 times BJ wins 9 of them.

That along with there being no standouts at 155 at all, and rematch it is.
Gray Maynard has a decision list than even Jon Fitch is impressed with.
Tyson Griffin lost to Sherk 2 fights ago, and has 1 finish in 3 years(7 or 8 fights)
Nate Diaz only has one win, and doesn't want to fight BJ anyway.
Florian has 2 wins in a row, but nobody is interested in him again.

Since when does losing to Sherk make you an undeserving fighter? Griffin looked great in knocking out Hermes Franca, and has won "fight of the night" honors 5 times, including his two decision losses to Sherk and Edgar. He also has wins over Guida & Tibau. I think he'd be a great first fight for Edgar.

Well I think besides anothe BJ rematch I think Florian is another option as well imo. I don't think Frankie and KenFlo ever fought and Kenflo has won like 2 in a row...
I'm not a huge fan of Kenflo,but after a BJ rematch there is no other and Gomi is a non-factor now imo unless he rattles off a few wins.
