Immediately under him were Frankie Edgar and Chad Mendes, two dynamite talents that seemed capable of beating anybody else in the division. Below them were contenders like “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung, Ricardo Lamas, Cub Swanson, Charles Oliveira, Dennis Bermudez, and Jeremy Stephens, all of whom seemed to be just an impressive win or two shy of a title shot.
