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.
