Found April 30, 2013 on Fight Hub TV:
It seems odd that Frankie Edgar, a guy who has fought seven title fights in a row, and all to true number one contenders (at least in my opinion) would want to hope on the hype-train bandwagon as a way to get a title shot, but who am I to judge? We just got off UFC 159, where Chael Sonnen got a world title shot because he called out the champ. Chael didn’t have a light heavyweight win in over half a decade, was coming off a loss at middleweight and yet, there he was — in the main event and about thirty seconds away from having the title due to Bones’ broken toe. Sorry, I think I got off on a tangent there.  The fact is, we know Frankie Edgar is awesome, but a win over Charles Oliveira does not mean a title shot at featherweight again. Let’s be fair. Frankie, how about a Chad Mendes fight if you finish Charles in impressive fashion? That would be enough in my opinion to warrant another shot. Now granted, those fights that Frankie lost were damn close, but close only counts in horses...
