Next week’s UFC event bonanza starts with a Fight Pass event featuring Paige VanZant and Rose Namajunas in the main event on Thursday, and culminates with UFC 194’s Conor McGregor/Jose Aldo funfest on Saturday, but tucked in between the two shows is a TUF 22 Finale on Friday.
TUF finales generally aren’t the most top-shelf of offerings. However, former champ Frankie Edgar and featherweight stud Chad Mendes are headlining this one, so maybe the standard assumptions don’t apply.
Since losing to Aldo back in 2013, Edgar has been a dominant force, retiring BJ Penn, and taking out Charles Oliveira, Cub Swanson and Urijah Faber like they were nothing. And, according to this promo vid, he really loves New Jersey.
Oh well. Nobody is perfect.
