Time For Frankie Edgar To ‘Move On’

Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar is planning on taking his fighting career elsewhere.

Edgar isn’t leaving the UFC, and didn’t make it official that he was heading towards the featherweight division, but from his demeanor following a loss Saturday night to Benson Henderson, it sure seems that way.

“I’m moving on,” said a disheartened Edgar after losing to Henderson at UFC 150. “Dana (White) ain’t gonna give me another title shot, I’ll tell you that much.”

Edgar dropped the belt to Henderson earlier this year, but pushed his way into an immediate rematch. “The Answer” seemed poised to take back the belt, but the split decision went to Henderson, instead.

Mentions of Edgar fighting at featherweight have been ongoing for some time now. He naturally walks around near the lightweight limit of 155 pounds, and has said he would have no trouble moving down.
