Imo Maynard v Edgar 2 should have been a 10-7 at least. So it depends on how your scoring system works. A 10-9 is a fairly even round where one fighter showed slightly better, as in landed a few more clean shots or got a take down something along those lines.

I disagree totally. While Wandy was close to finishing he by no means dominated the round. He stole it in the last minute which deserves a 10-9.

Here is a link to the FightMetric:

The important stats show that Wandy was very inactive for most of the round and Franklin, even after the attack by Wandy, still had more significant strikes. By your method anyone with a really tight RNC should be given a 10-8 round since someone showed 'superiority'.
