UFC Quick Quote: Frankie Edgar would retire before talking drop to bantamweight

USA TODAY Sports

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Frankie Edgar is content with staying put at 145 pounds after earning his first victory in the division over Charles Oliveira at UFC 162 and reveals that a switch to bantamweight is out of the question.

"If I've got to hear Dana talk about 135, I don't know, I'm retiring. A win feels good, anyway, but especially after three losses in a row. Being that this is my first win at 145, [it feels] very good."

After earning his first win in the featherweight division over Charles Oliveira at UFC 162 back on July 6, 2013, the last thing Frankie Edgar wants to do is think about making another switch in weight classes. As he told reporters at the post-fight press conference, before the thought of dropping down to bantamweight ever creeps into his mind, he might as well retire. The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion made the drop to the 145-pound division earlier this year, losing a unanimous decision to champion Jose Aldo at UFC 156. And now that he has his first win in his new weight class in the books, "The Answer" is content with staying put and doesn't want to hear anyone -- including UFC President Dana White -- talking about a potential move to 135 pounds, because it isn't going to happen. No way, no how.
