Two of the very best featherweights in the world today are ready to rumble, as former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight king Frankie Edgar and former 145-pound title challenger Ricardo Lamas recently took to Twitter to lock down a future fight.

. Who’s down to see @FrankieEdgar and I mix it up? Been a fan of his for a long time, I’m in this to fight the best. @ufc

Edgar, 35, is coming off a recent win over Jeremy Stephens at UFC 205. Before that, the former lightweight champ lost his second bid for a featherweight strap when he dropped another unanimous decision to Jose Aldo at UFC 200 this past July. Even at his age, Edgar is still at the top of the division and a worthy title contender moving forward in 2017.

Lamas, 34, rebounded after a loss to Max Holloway at UFC 199 when he submitted Charles Oliveira this past November. Having only lost to Aldo, Holloway and Chad Mendes throughout his UFC career, “Bully” is a perennial title contender who could surely leap frog a few other divisional names with a win over Edgar.

This matchup makes sense for both fighters, so maybe UFC will happily oblige.
