Kendall definitely had better cardio, but Ed was too strong for him to submit and when you let a fighter escape 4 or 5 submission attempts then you don't deserve to win.

It was a great fight and, even though I would have given it to ed, Kendall is a good winner.

No doubt, Kendall couldnt finish. No doubt Ed couldnt finish. But like any match, its cat and mouse until someone gets caught in the trap, and it looked like Kendall had Ed until Ed was saved by the bell.
Now had there been 30 more seconds, would we have a clear victor?

What i found was that kendall chose to break his submissions either because they werent working as planned or.... Now Ed on the other hand, i noticed he wasnt breaking his holds but rather Kendall was escaping them.

At the end of the day, was a great match. I think Ed has improved greatly, but i think Kendall is a smarter fighter. I think we will see them fight again.
