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.
Bendo went for the finish a few times in the first.

I don't understand any of this. To me, Edgar is a really exciting fighter and I always look forward to his fights. Henderson seems to me like he looks for decision wins, but has the power and strength to finish guys or submit them. He's an all round technical fighter, but on the other side you have Edgar who isn't intertested in using any other elements other than boxing and heart.

I had the fight 3 to Edgar, 1 to Hendo and 1 Tie, but I said going into the decision that either man can take it. Hendo landed several hard shots and because Edgar doesnt seem to care about them, they are easily forgotten but to some judges those could have earned him every round.

I think Edgar clearly won and a robbery is never good.

He outstruck, outgrappled and even rocked Bendo en route to losing a decision. Completely ridiculous.

Frankie is very exciting and I think it's crazy that he just pretty much beat a guy who weighs around 190lb (and would be a very good WW) as a true 155lber. He also outwrestled the shit out of Gray Maynard in their last two fights as the much smaller man.

The loss does my head in, but atleast I get my dream matchup of Frankie V Aldo.

Bendo wasn't rocked in any of his fights with Edgar. Fans mistaking getting rocked or dropped for fighters simply being caught off balance is quite the issue. It doesn't help when Rogan and Goldie are screaming "HE GOT ROCKED!!! OOOOUUUUOOOOHHHH"! every time some one gets caught off balance either.

Watch both the fights carefully, Henderson wasn't even close to being rocked.

What did Bendo do to deserve the win again?

He really could have won the fight and he had me worried in the first two rounds when he kept landing that low kick. I have no idea why he abandoned the gameplan, it was working. I wouldn't have a qualm if he legitimately won but he didn't.

Contrary to others I don't always see a decision loss as a loss to the fighter. Judges may have the final say on what the history books show but it doesn't mean they are correct.

It was a big punch but Henderson kept his eyes on Edgar the entire time so he obviously wasn't hurt too bad.

Uhh no he doesn't. He has been rocked or dropped in quite a few of his fights, what he does have is excellent recovery.

Totally ridiculous thing to say, You want the sport to be damaged? It hurts the credibility of the sport when this kind of sht happens, that is far worse than some fighter grudge someone has or if they are boring or not. Henderson is no more exciting in my eyes anyway. Did not agree with them having this rematch though Henderson deserved it first time - but Edgar won this fight. Dont want a rematch this time mind, LW has to move on....its getting clogged up.

Anyone who says Edgar point fights has never seen point fighting.

To those that feel Edgar won but are happy to see Bendo win.

Your favorite fighters turn might come around and if he gets jacked of a critical win, don't post a page long shit fit about it.

chael sonnen is a boring point fighter, so is gsp, evans, shields, askren, fitch, koscheck and so on. frankie's last three fights were some of the most exciting, heart displaying fights i have ever seen, he is the definition of a comeback fighter, he competes in a division where he is always the smaller fighter and has defended the title the same amount of times as bj did. the article is written by a hater, thats all
