Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale: Edgar vs Penn Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA

Scott Johnson

When Frankie Edgar first stepped into cage with BJ Penn, very few gave the undersized Lightweight challenger a chance. His initial victory was seen by many as either an incredibly close decision or an outright robbery. The end result was an immediate rematch, with many feeling that Penn would reclaim his thrown in quick fashion. Much to the surprise of many, Frankie Edgar took home the title in much more convincing fashion. Now, after coaching head to head on the latest season of the Ultimate Fighter and demonstrating an incredible amount of respect for each other, the two will once again collide. Only this time, they will meet as Featherweights, but with just as much on the line.

For Penn a win over Edgar will mean redemption and rebirth. If BJ were to pursue his career at this weightclass, he may find himself on the cusp of a title shot against Jose Aldo if he can finally upend ‘the Answer’. Frankie has already battle the Brazil champion and lost a clear decision. But, if Edgar were to once again vanquish his Hawaiian counterpart, the opportunity to battle for the 145 pound strap for a second time would be within reach.
