Frankie Edgar robbed twice! Henderson only threatened with low leg kicks and was beaten to the punch every time, Edgar scored the only knock down and was pressing the action. 48-47 Edgar.

I enjoyed the fight cos the tides could have swung in either fighters favour at any point, but in the end it didn't. Was a close fight might as well have been a draw.

I felt neither fighter committed to finishing, little bit disappointing in that respect, I feel both fighters could've been a bit more aggressive.

I love the "EDGAR CLEARLY WON" comments.....why? Because thats not what the outcome said. It happened, its over. Lets prepare for the next fights.

So by this philosophy we should NEVER talk about fights that have already happened, and how we feel about them?

It's over, move on? That makes very little sense to me.

On that note, Edgar clearly won that fight.

I gave it 3 rounds to 2 to Frankie and thought he had the more clear round victories. That is the state of MMA now though you can beat a guy twice and somehow lose both fights. Likely another case of body punches don't count in MMA and I was dreading that as it was happening in the closer rounds.

Frankie yet again evolved his striking for this fight the double up outside inside leg kicks were real nice and his infighting has gotten better. Going to the body and coming over the top with the right counter which is necessary for him fighting a guy with more length than him. Regardless of what 2 bad judges say he proved once again that he is the best 155er in the world.

lol @ Bendo getting beat up.

Those little 1-2 combination school boy digs Frankie landed throughout the fight isn't "beating some one up". It's called fighting for points, scoring with little shots here and there.

Bendo/Frankie 1 is a fight where some one got beat up pretty bad.

Man Henderson must have the worst chin ever. Either that or getting dropped doesn't count as getting beat up. Your hate for Frankie makes your posts regarding this fight laughable.

Did you even watch the fight? He mainly scored with body shots, counter rights, and leg kicks standing not 1-2s.
