Realistically, every lightweight champion in MMA deserves a spot on our frate trane list. Logistically, there aren’t enough slots on that list for all of them. Whoever invented Arabic numerals failed to take frate trane rankings into account, and he’s lucky the system has been around for thousands of years because if he were still alive, there would be a bunch of angry frate tranes knocking on his door demanding he amend the world’s adapted numeric system. Frankie Edgar beat BJ Penn twice and the only reason that doesn’t get him on the list is because some Arabic dude didn’t see it coming. Goes to show you why he’s always been an underdog. The UFC lightweight champ doesn’t care if you continue count him out — dude is stepping into the cage to avenge the only loss of his career from Gray Maynard at UFC 125 on New Year’s Day and the latest trailer from NickTheFace should get you excited for what you’ll all be watching to start the new year.
