Edgar's plan seems to be to catch Bendo on a counter. He's not moving nearly as much or in the same way he did against BJ or Gray, he's coming in and out and then circling around. He had these crazy angles he would come out at and almost go through his opponent to get out of exchanges before.

Bendo seems to want to own the middle of the cage and wait for Frankie to come to him. He's using his legs to keep Edgar out and slow him down in the process, which is working.

I like how this fight is turning out.

Edit: knockdown by Frankie, wow, and now the submission. Bendo is nearly untappable though, his choke defense is unreal.

Wow, that punch by frankie almost sealed the deal.

Benson needs to get more aggressive with his striking instead of sitting back throwing kicks and the occasional jab imo.

1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

Nice shot by Edgar. Can't never count that kid out, heart of a lion. Even so far.

Rogan's playing favorites again. He sees Bendo using Tae-Kwon-Do and just starts oozing about it.

We're tied up 1-1. Though I think most of that round was a stalemate because of the "am I up or am I grounded" game.
