After having his planned, bantamweight debut sidelined by a stoppage loss to Chan Sung Jung, Frankie Edgar has outlined a timeline for his next bout.

The former featherweight champ was supposed to make his 135 debut against Cory Sandhagen in January. But, when Brian Ortega incurred a knee injury last fall, Edgar agreed to face the featherweight Jung at UFC Busan in December. Edgar was stopped in the fight, and his bout with Sandhagen was called off.

Edgar attended an event for his management team, Dominance MMA last weekend in Vegas. While talking about his next bout, the 38-year-old said the following (quotes via MMA Junkie):

“I have no idea (who’s next), honestly,” Edgar said. “I’m down with anybody in the top five (or) 10, so whatever they come up with. I’m not really one to pick guys unless they’re the champion.”

“I’m going to obviously fight at 135 like I was originally planning to do and try to get in there in June,” Edgar added. “I think (my manager) Ali (Abdelaziz) will probably start talking some opponents with the UFC soon.”

Edgar’s (23-8-1) last win took place in 2018, when he defeated Cub Swanson by decision.
