 Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will officially move down to featherweight for his next fight in the Octagon.

According to a report by UFC Tonight on Tuesday, Edgar has decided to drop down to 145 pounds and hopes to fight in December, although no decision has been made as of yet who or when he will make his featherweight debut.

Over the past few years, Edgar has fielded more questions about dropping to featherweight than he probably has about his lightweight title. Now, the New Jersey native will finally make the drop to 145 pounds to see if he can find the same success at featherweight that he did at 155 pounds.

UFC president Dana White was quoted earlier in the day on Tuesday as saying, “Frankie Edgar is probably gonna have to move down to 145,” in terms of earning another title shot right away.

First things first, Edgar will look to make an impact at featherweight and then hopefully make a run at Jose Aldo and the 145-pound title in 2013.
