Controversial doesnt change what happened. It's not like BJ was clearly winning and then got robbed. We aren't talking Pacquiao/Bradley here.

At the time it was pretty bad. Major rage fits. Kind of like Shogun-Machida 1.

Not to mention BJ was supposed to and probably should have mauled Frankie. I gave up ever cheering for Penn after that fight. He just got lazy and I realized he is just now a person who can sustain success.

Not really. There were just as many people saying Edgar won.

Not that I saw. Every where I saw it was like 80% felt BJ was robbed.

BJ's fanbase, especially back then was very vocal, a lot like Shogun's.

Imagine if Anderson lost a close decision, there'd be a lot of backlash.

Where is this stat from? Because it was pretty split from most people I talked to. Same with Machida/Shogun. Tons of people on each side.

It just seemed like it was 80%. I remember the majority of the sites out there scoring the fights scored it for BJ Penn. I remember seeing a couple scoring it a draw and there was some for Frankie but far more for BJ Penn. Just about every site I went to it was overwhelmingly in favor of BJ Penn.

To be honest it doesn't really matter. The win went to Edgar and then Edgar beat up Penn in their second fight. He proved who the better fighter was.
