Frankie Edgar vs Matt Wiman Proposed for UFC Fight for the Troops

MMAMania has learned a fight between Lightweights Frankie Edgar and Matt Wiman is in the works for UFC Fight for the Troops. The proposed match-up would feature two of the UFC's best young Lightweights in a fight that could put the winner on the fast track to a title shot in 2009. Edgar is coming off an impressive win over Hermes Franca at UFC Fight Night 14. Many believed Franca was the favorite coming into the fight, but Edgar controlled the action most of the time. Wiman is also coming off a big win over Thiago Tavares at UFC 85. He delivered one of the ugliest knockouts of the year when he blasted Tavares with a right hand that knocked the young Brazilian completely out.

The December 10th card is beginning to take shape. Along with this proposed bout, it will feature Josh Koscheck vs Yoshiyuki Yoshida and Mike Swick vs Jonathan Goulet. Look for a main event to be announced shortly. Other fights being discussed include: Luigi Fioravanti vs. Brodie Farber, Eddie Sanchez vs. Justin McCully, and Corey Hill vs Dale Hartt.

This one could be a war. I'd favor Wiman. He has the look of a fighter who is getting it and everything is coming together. Getting through the great fight with Tavares made me a believer.

If Edgar wins and Spencer Fisher wins, they should fight again.

I hated Wiman on TUF. He was arrogant and thought he was going to win the whole time. Now he is a different person. He was humbled with the loss on TUF. Edgar won't win this fight.
