People BOOOed that new champ, but when Frankie took the mic? The whole stadium went bananas cheering the GUY.

They all cheered him for being so boring!

Haters, nothing more. Frankie won even in his first fight, but the lame judges just wanted it the other way!


Also, if he is a SCORING fighter? Why didn't his opponents be better than him, and KO him OUT?

LAME article, because its just jealousy and hate!

How in the hell is Frankie a boring fighter? His first fight was Gray featured an astonishing come from behind 1st round, his 2nd fight was the same, and then he KO'd Gray, then he fights Benson, takes an upkick of hell and still manages to win the fight in some people's eyes...how is Frankie a boring fighter? The dude is dynamite, I love watching this dude fight.

I thought Bendo clearly won the 1st matchup, and that Frankie shouldn't have gotten the rematch, so I'm OK with the result.

I will check your reps now. It is against forum rules to leave insults in reps (or to insult members in general)

Different opinions should be welcomed, so we can actually discuss. If everyone thought exactly the same thing, it'd be boring as hell.

In the OP's defence, even though I really don't agree with him or the article, if you find something boring, you're right. You can't help being bored by something, it just happens. Just like you don't choose your sense of humour or what music you like. Same as some people find Chael hilarious and some people find him...well...boring Some perspective is needed.

Seems the exact same people on here that hate GSP for his "boring decisions" love Frankie for his boring point fighting decisions with zero damage. At least when GSP took decisions, his opponents other than Hardy looked like lumpy pancakes.

I guess because Edgar gets beat the heck up in the process of his boring touch fighting decisions he's an amazing exciting rocky figure but GSP with his absolute dominance and technical brilliance gets hate.

Sometimes I think mma fans just mistake a guy getting himself beat up as exciting, regardless of how good he actually is. I call it the Rocky Hangover.

I agree with the article, never liked Frankie or his style, he needs to move to FW where others are just as fast and his power isn't quite so weak.

You may agree with the article, but it is still nothing but hating. The fans in the arena prove that Frankie has fans. The article is awful.

I don't find Edgar boring, I just don't see him as a champion. He has the heart of a champion, but he leaves doubt in my mind at least. I won't speak for everyone else. I think that a championship bout shouldn't leave doubt in your mind most of the time. Most of his challengers, he just barely eeks a decision win against. Even when he finishes a guy like Maynard, it's because Maynard got tired from beating the champion up.

A champion should stand alone as the best. Junior Dos Santos, Jon Jones, Anderson Silva, Georges St. Pierre, Jose Aldo, and Dominick Cruz continue to show that they are the best in their division by definitively beating their opponents. It's not even about just winning on points, there isn't anything wrong with that. Georges St. Pierre a lot of the time wins decisions, but it's always a decisive decision win. Even though he doesn't finish his opponents, he leaves no question on who was the better fighter. Edgar wins or loses controversial decisions that leaves fans arguing for months and months on who was the better fighter and who should have won. He shows that he may or may not be just barely the better fighter. it almost gives me a head ache every time he fights because it leaves so many questions after the fight ends.

To be fair, it could be because the lightweight division is so stacked with talent to the point that no one is really above the rest. Still, it's refreshing for me at least to see a lightweight title fight that won't have Edgar in it. Maybe we'll see a definitive ending that we won't have to argue over for once.

I might get negative repped for this post, but I don't mean to insult Edgar. I don't think he's boring, and I'm stating this as my opinion alone. It's just how I see it and why I'm happy he's not the lightweight champion anymore. Take it for what it's worth.

Definitely agree with this. The writer is taking the liberty of speaking for all mma fans. Find Frankie boring? Fine. But don't put words in the mma community's mouth.
