That is, if decisions on who gets title shots are based on what one has proven inside the cage. Conor McGregor should be the top contender for Aldo based on the ability to make people interested in seeing a fight. The decisions in these circumstanc read news >>

Unfortunately for Swanson, and maybe Edgar, the former champ only got to fight once Saturday night in Austin. With Edgar crushing his title hopes over the course of five rounds, Swanson sounded blindsided speaking to FOX Sports post-fight in Texas.
