Just watched the fight, mind you this opinion is coming from an Edgar fan, but that was a coin toss of a decision. Someone was going to feel like shit after the fight because that was a really close performance.
Round 1: Benson
Round 2: Frankie
Round 3: ??????
Round 4: ??????
Round 5: ??????
Real technical fight for sure. I just can't be upset with the decision, it was a real coin toss; probably the closest fight I've ever seen. That was a true split decision victory and it could have gone either way. If they called it a draw people would have been more pissed off than they are now, so I'm glad they didn't and gave it to one of them.
I think the real problem was the decision in the first fight, which I believe Edgar won, so it kind of sucks for his professional record to be tainted with a unanimous decision loss that he should've won, or at the very least was a draw. On paper it looks like he got beat decisively the first time by Benson, and then couldn't convince the judges he deserved the belt in the 2nd fight which couldn't be further from the truth. I feel for Edgar, poor guy fights his ass off and has to put up with these ****ed up calls, what can you do?
