But he won't keep fighting like that because it's just not how he rolls. Bendo is an intense and tenacious fighter, always has that determined look in his eye and that's never going to change.

Same with guys like BJ, Sanchez, Diaz bros, Velasquez. Guys that will always come to scrap it out no matter what, it's in their dna.

It was an extremely close fight that could have gone either way (just rewatched the fight). Honestly, after rewatching, I actually don't think Frankie was robbed at all, I feel it's much closer than what I had originally thought and what everyone else is saying.

I find Bendo to be much more exciting than Edgar, therefore I'd like to see him remain champion over Edgar, yes. I don't see how that's wrong for the sport. I'd rather see exciting champions than boring ones, is that such a crime? And after rewatching the fight, I actually don't have a problem with him getting the nod either.

And again, this rematch should never have happened in the first place. Frankie simply didn't deserve it.

Edgar doesn't have a stern chin so if he just stayed in the pocket and traded not only would he probably get dropped but everyone and their mother that knows mma would think he's a moron.

Sounds like Edgar won, but not complaining. He is boring and nobody cares about his fights (hence awful live gate and buyrates). His reaction to Bendo getting the decision win is childlike; it reminds me of Diaz's complaining which is not good company.

Very well put Legion.

Frankie dominated that fight and the judges awarding the win to Ben only shows how truly inept the Judges, the system, and everything involved with the athletic commissions is.

Don't forget the fans on here. Frankie may have been outstruck overall, but fights aren't won by number of strikes. Fights are won by number of rounds won and there is no way to argue Bendo won 3 of the rounds because he just plain did not. It's a shame truly that Frankie got screwed, I will never be happy when the undeserving gets the win. If you find Frankie's fights boring maybe it's best you watch another sport, he goes as hard and as fast as he can for 25 minutes and people say he's boring? Go watch bare knuckle brawling if you want first round ko's with no technique.

Frankie fights like he does because he has too, what's he going to do? Stand back and load up on right hands? Swing haymakers the whole fight? Frankie fights to win, he doesn't point fight, he fights to win, end of story. It's a disgrace that 2 idiot judges screwed him over while one got it right. Even worse is the douchey way in which Bendo accepted the belt, he knew he got beat, he had the look of defeat in his eyes in the last 2 minutes and then goes on to say he can't believe one of the judges gave it to Frankie.

As a neutral in this argument I really don't get all this Edgar hate...its not like Bendo came anywhere close to finishing the fight either and he hasnt stopped anybody since he got to the UFC. If your a casual fan or a Bendo fan its always nice to see someone win the belt decisively.

I dont see how his reaction was childlike, I think we would all be pretty pissed off if we spent 6 months training and lost both fights by the slimmest of margins when you thought you won both times. He stayed for his loser speech, he didnt run out of the ring forest style and he didnt disrespect bendo in any way.

FWIW I thought Edgar won the fight but when its that close and up to the opinion of just 3 people its hard to argue with what they decide.

Finally, I dont have to see Edgar's point fighting in a LW title fight again. I wish Edgar was more blood hungry and went for the finish and bum rushed guys like Wanderlei. Maybe then I might find him not boring.

Maybe the judges scored the fight on who caused more damage. That would be very smart actually. Frankie's "sparring-pawing-no-damage-hitting" style would be useless. Haha, Bendo actually hurt Frankie more, look at their faces at the post-fight conference.

Yeah, and look at where Wanderlei is now. He's a shell of his former self.

Frankie Edgar isn't built like Wanderlei Silva, he doesn't have the power to bumrush and destroy people with punches, he just doesn't have the power. He uses the best style of fighting for his body type and that is using angles, footwork and the technical aspect of MMA.

This isn't some street fight behind the corner, this is a professional sport with big time money and Championships on the line, guys are gonna do everything they can not to lose.

And finally, for the people bitching about Frankie always going to a decision and praising Bendo as some sort of killer, guess who actually has the more recent finish of the two?

If the article was written by a hater, than count me in. I'm not a fan of point fighting in the UFC. It will ruin it.

That being said, I don't think Ben did anything but point fight as well. It was just like the first fight. 2 guys that didn't look like they actually wanted to finish the other guy.

I expect that from Edgar, but not from Ben. I happen to agree with both decisions. The first was clearly unanimous as the judges ruled it, and this one, was split, but definitely, clearly in the favor of Ben. Frankie didn't do nearly enough to take a title belt from someone.
