He may have come up short agasint Jose Aldo at UFC 200 but Frankie Edgar certainly isn't shying away from the cameras following his loss to the Brazilian legend.
Edgar showed up cageside to support his teammate Marlon Moraes for his defense of the World Series of Fighting bantamweight title against Josh Hill last night and the WSOF interviewer picked a VERY inopportune moment - just as Moraes landed a knockout blow on his opponent.
Edgar, meanwhile, is contemplating his next move inside the UFC featherweight division that he is no longer a top contender in following his defeat to Aldo and two names keep getting mentioned - Max Holloway and Jeremy Stephens.
Max Holloway has won nine fights in a row since dropping a decision to Conor McGregor in the summer of 2013 while Stephens, a former lightweight, has looked impressive since dropping down to 145lbs and his recent victory over for 135lbs kingpin Renan Barao was the biggest of his career.
Speaking to FloCombat about his potential next opponent, Edgar suggested that when he does step back into the octagon it will most likely be against one of Stephens or Holloway.
This division is full of great fights for me and I want to keep it moving. I know Max Holloway is out there. Jeremy Stephens is out there and either of them would make sense. Just because I fell short in my last fight doesn't mean I'm letting up in the slightest in my push to become the featherweight champion.
I've faced setbacks before and it's all about getting back to your feet and getting after it. Does it suck that I lost? Yeah it sure does, but there isn't a drop of quit in me. I don't know anything about that. What I do know about is coming back stronger and that's what I'm going to do.
The New Jersey native is a strong candidate to be on the first ever UFC card in New York next November in Madison Square Garden and it would be a safe bet to suggest he has some idea of who he'll be facing.
