I'm not whining about the decision, I'm questioning the mentality of someone who is glad a top fighter has been set back because of the incompetence of the judges.

How is Bendo being Champ any better for the division than Frankie being Champ? All that matters is that the right guys are being awarded, which is not happening. If you can't see that, or can but decide to support it when it suits you, I can't respect your opinion.

Judging is a major issue, but the fans have the biggest say and supporting the outcomes of fights like this is not productive. Sure it was close, some thought Bendo won, but what is UNDENIABLE is that it is a controversial decision and we're having too many of those lately.

My point is Edgar has won what, five FOTN's?

He's brilliant, he's technically sound but because his record is full of decisions instead of knock outs, he's boring. It's like people don't even watch him fight.
He's only exciting when his opponent is beating him up. (Gray Maynard, Bendo first fight, Tyson Griffin). Similar to Clay Guida in that regard. Guidas only exciting fights are the ones where he's getting destroyed. (Sanchez, Bendo, Florian etc).

Thing is, Bendo vs Edgar 2 wasn't even boring, it was good fight.

In your opinion. I thought it was quite boring. Both fighters were showing each other far too much respect and neither were willing to take risks to really try and finish the fight.

So why happy Frankie lost when you admit right here Bendo also didn't try to finish or make it exciting?

Sounds like you are just blindly biased.

I was rooting for Bendo, and he didn't push the pace enough to win. He lost and was awarded a free win and belt. I thought ben won the first fight but this fight, it was a disgrace even though it was a close fight. Rounds 1 - 3 were ben and the rest for frankie. Even if you think Frankie is a boring fighter, the fact of the matter is he won that fight.

Also, you are a biased hater, and the kind of fan MMA can do without.

Because one safety first performance by Bendo isn't enough to change my opinion on the man.

Bendo is a consistently exciting and tenacious fighter and brings it every time he steps foot in the cage. He is an intense dude. One weak performance isn't going to change my outlook on the matter, I judge things on the whole and look at consistency over a number of fights.

Frankie on the other hand is a consistently boring fighter in my opinion and always fights with that trademark in and out style.

It's like the Carlos Condit/ Nick Diaz fight. Carlos Condit fighting a safe fight like that was completely unpredictable and shocked all fans. How ever, he is a consistently exciting and tenacious fighter and one safety first fight isn't going to change my opinion on him either. I still love watching the guy fight.

Hope that clears things up.

Not sure what I've done to get you so angry. I don't see where I've shown this blind biased hatred. Strong words there fella.

I'm not biased against Frankie, I just don't personally like his fighting style.

If I was just another biased hater then I wouldn't acknowledge the fact that he is an excellent technical fighter and one of the best in the division. I can appreciate those things, but at the same time, despise his fighting style. I don't see what's so wrong with that. I'm not going to be forced to like a fighter that I don't.

So if he keeps fighting like this your opinion will change of him? Sounds like you are very wishy washy when it comes to fighters.

Also, I find it very strange that you'd rather have a champion who doesn't deserve to be champion, if it means a fighter that you personally aren't a fan of is champion. It's a horrible mentality for a sport.
