It is what it is guys. It was a close fight, and by no means a robbery. We are going to get some great matchups as a result of this.

No if you look he takes his hand off of the mat and puts it back on quickly, clearly on purpose, baiting frankie to throw a shot. At one point frankie did throw a knee and it landed just after bendo put his hand back on the mat, but Herb made a great call and let it slide as it was clearly bending the already greyshaded rules.

I like Frankie, I think he's a good guy, but I am not a big fan of his point fighting. There's a reason why he has the record for most average fight length in the LW division. If he drops down he will get EATEN by Jose Aldo. If you think Bendos leg kicks hurt....
I agree, the fight was stupid close, at the end of it I even posted that I just don't know. As far as I was concerned only round 1 and round 2 were guaranteed, the other 3 were a mix of power shots by Bendo, counters by Frankie, and then some odd action on the ground that resulted in 0 GnP or significant strikes.

I was rooting for Bendo, but if they picked Edgar I wouldn't have been as upset as everyone else is about Bendo getting the nod.

I still wish Bendo would have thrown more of those power head kicks, it looked like he could have caught Edgar with his rush in and out.

I scored the fight 3-2 for Edgar... But looking at the #'s it clearly shows Henderson won the fight... So I'm not to upset.... It was a super close fight....

I had it 4-1 Edgar at best, 3-2 Edgar at worst. I thought either way this fight gets called, Edgar wins.

I was shocked when he didn't.

He was hand fighting while trying to stand up and also keep a knee from being thrown. Pretty simple actually.
