Twitter reacts to Frankie Edgar's first round knockout of Chad Mendes
At least the winner of UFC 194's main event knows who they're fighting next.
Just as Rose Namajunas stole the show at UFC Fight Night 80, Frankie Edgar followed suit in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter 22 finale.
Edgar came through early adversity to stop Chad Mendes in the first round of their Friday night meeting and lined himself up for another shot at the featherweight belt.
The Answer's colleagues were quick to let their appreciation be known.
Ohhhhhh!!!! Nice @FrankieEdgar with the left hook!!!

And non-fighters jumped all over the prospect of seeing Edgar get his hands on Conor McGregor.
Frankie Edgar, greatest LW champion in UFC history, on his way to a FW title. If it's McGregor waiting for him, he'll get it.
