Victorious at UFC FN 92, a prime Dennis Bermudez pulls an audacious move: “Frankie Edgar! Let’s go!”

Published

on

Having now won in yet another exciting bout (see Dennis Bermudez vs. Matt Grice,) by beating Rony Jason by unanimous decision, and doing so in the co-main event of UFC’s Salt Lake City card, Bermudez pulled an admirable and ballsy move in his post-fight interview.

After briefly answering Jon Anik’s question regarding Bermudez’s emotions following his victory, the 29-year-old took a split-second to collect himself and followed his blunt response with a career changing move by calling out one of the UFC’s biggest and baddest stars.

“Frankie Edgar! November 14th! Madison Square Garden, let’s go!”

November 12th, UFC 205, are the exact dates that Bermudez was referring to.

It’s well known that many fighters tend to be cautious and reply with the same answers when asked who they would like to face next.  These scenarios  typically go along the lines of “I’ll fight whoever they put in front of me,” or “It’s not up to me, it’s up to Silva and Shelby”. In this case, it’s up to Bermudez.

Of course, with all the juggernaut forces competing in the colorful featherweight division, Bermudez jumping the line to compete against the latest 145 title challenger and a top-3 opponent could very well upset the likes of other worthy challengers, but if one were to justify the challenge that Bermudez set, taking a look into the history of the New York natives wins inside the UFC would do just that.

Shortly after making his way to the finale of The Ultimate Fighter season 14 and losing to the eventual finalist, Bermudez would bounce back and go on a tear in the featherweight division by dispatching seven fighters in a row. The impressive winning streak involved wins over highly ranked fighters such as Clay Guida and Max Holloway.

Could Bermudez get his wish? Who knows. But what is certain is that now with another victory in his hands, the number 8th fighter in the UFC’s colorful top-10, 145-pound weight class is sure to get a drastic change in the rankings come Monday morning.

Just don’t be surprised if an announcement regarding a bout between him and Edgar in New York comes true, though.
