I also don't have to base my views on fights and fighters on what 3 generally incompetent judges have to say. I don't have to accept all decisions as law and I never will.
And I'm not saying you should. But yet again, you can think what ever you want about about who you thought really won. The fact of the matter is there is no peoples championship belt. There is no "Who the fans thought won" belt. There's only an official belt, and according to the judges, Ben retained the belt. So those are the results I go by.

The fight for me always came down to this: Frankie landed more pitter patter shots, while Bendo landed the harder shots. Whenever Bendo would land Frankie would feel it, which I can't say the same for Frankies shots. I'm not big on point fighting and IMO if the fight would have lasted 2 more rounds Bendo would have taken it.

I scored the fight for Bendo, but it could have easily been a draw, although I have no idea why people say Frankie was "robbed". On the other hand I have only watched the fight once, so does anyone have a link to refresh my memory?

Edgar got battered in the first fight, and then managed to squeak out a possible victory in the second fight. He's no one to blame but himself for not putting his foot on the gas and really looking to do some real damage on Bendo in the second fight and leave no question in any ones mind on who won.

Let's see if he's learned his lesson for the upcoming Aldo fight.

Its pretty easy to say he should of just done more Edgar was doing all he could while avoiding getting rocked. If he tries to do more damage he gets tagged, rocked and loses the round anyway.

It was a draw at best. I thought Frankie was winning the fight but that it was so close it really should have been a draw. I think anytime a fight was so close a thread like this is needed then it was a draw. People hate draws but I think its better then declaring someone a winner when they only eeked out the most marginal of decisions. Or worse got a gift from blind judges.

Karma, if it even exists, wouldn't have anything to do with it. The draw wasn't Frankie's decision, that was left to the judges, therefore, Frankie has nothing to atone or answer for.

I thought Frankie won the first, and the second was a draw for all it was worth. Unfortunately, when you've got incompetent judges, and 5 rounds you get close rounds scored for or against fighters when the judges could just null them; it's a stupid system they have really.
