Bendo hasn't finished a fight in 2 years and hasn't finished one period since joining the UFC.

How ever overall he's a more consistent finisher and has quite a few more finishing on his record than Frankie.

And even those fights he hasn't finished in the UFC (Miller, Guida, Edgar 1st fight) he has looked for the finish and been heavily aggressive in those bouts.

The same simply can't be said about Frankie. He very rarely looks for the finish and is very rarely aggressive, in pretty much all of his fights.

He's not your type of fighter we get it.

Therein lies the problem... styles make fights... and it would be stoopid for Edgar to try to do that with Bendo.

I think Edgar fights smart, its hard to hold it against a guy for taking the fight into his area of dominance.

I dont blame Edgar for being sooo pissed at the end... he was like... "I totally out pointed him!" ... yeah he did, and I hate him for it
But I would have done the same for the title... title == mo monay.

Had this exact same fight taken place at a small venue by two no-names, Dana wouldnt consider bringing them to the big show...much less a main event.

But they have both made a name for themselves... winning is more important that making 'highlight reel' worthy fights.

I cant fault Edgar for taking the best strategy to ensure victory... but I certainly wont spend money on a PPV to watch it.

I think a lot of people are throwing around the term 'robbery' waaaaayy too much. The fight was close enough to almost come down to a coin toss, nothing about it was a robbery. Nick Ring vs Fukuda was a robbery, this fight was just close.

M. Coenen | S. Kaufman | A. Davis
