Marshall Zelaznik: “If B.J. wins, the possibility of B.J. stepping up a weight class back on the table.”

UK UFC President, Marshall Zelaznik has giving his thoughts on the lightweight title situation come UFC 118 in Boston, Massachusetts, explaining if Edgar wins then he’ll face the winner of Florian and Maynard, but if BJ and Florian win, BJ may go up in weight once again.

Speaking via ESPN.co.uk, Zelaznik said:

“Penn and Florian only recently happened, and it was a pretty overpowering performance from B.J.. Depending on the B.J. v Frankie fight, if B.J. takes a narrow victory there is the potential for a trilogy between them. If Frankie were to win, it’s very easy to say the winner of Florian vs. Maynard fights for the championship.”

“But if B.J. wins and Florian wins, then it puts pressure on the match-making. That then puts the possibility of B.J. stepping up a weight class back on the table.”
