I can't wait to see the round by round strike stats for this fight to make sure I'm not going senile and that Rogan is indeed a douchebag.

I just felt like I had triple de ja vu with the Rogan and Edgar post fight interview.

Rogan: How did you think the fight went and what are your thoughts about the decision. I thought the fourth and fifth rounds went to you, but the third was up in the air.

Frankie: You know I fought a great fight, Jose is a great champion. But I keep finding myself in this situation...haha!

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

That left a bitter taste in my mouth watching Aldo bust Edgar's face up repeatedly with clean punches while Rogan talked about some insignificantly partially checked inside kick or throw some "nice combinations" that missed entirely.
It's his job to make people watching the fight get excited. The fight started to get close. Rogan hyped it up. Calm down.

The only time I can think of a worse performance on commentary was Rory - Condit 1 where punches to the shoulder were met with "HUGE RIGHT HAND BY RORY" while Condit busted him the hell up on the feet to almost nothing.
That's why I don't listen to Rogan too much. He's so ridiculously biased, it's almost sickening. Gono vs. Tamden and Teixeira vs. Fabio are other examples that are kind of cringe worthy. I like Rogan most of the time, but it's obvious that his fan boyish ways get the best of him a lot.

I agree that Rogan was bias, though not because he was trying to trick anyone, but rather because he's a fan and acts like one. He honed in on the fighter he wanted to win and didn't notice anything the other guy was throwing. His excitement is the greatest and worst thing about his commentary.

Tired of people getting brainwashed into thinking point fighting should win fights too.
Rogan was literally trying to convince the audience that things were happening as the fight was going. I usually dont mind him but this IMO was one of his worst performances I've ever seen.

End of second round Aldo's body language is fantastic, he's exploding out of takedown attempts and looking relaxed, and Rogan is already pushing some narrative about him being gassed.


Most of the 3-5 he just goes on about how Frankie should puce the pace because Aldo is getting tired even though he's still outstriking Frankie outside of the 4th round where he started to miss a lot.

And then this, coincidentally is also when the laughably biased commentary starts to come in.

I focus more on hearing the punches land and you can see Frankie throw but you hear nothing, then Aldo throws and you hear the thud. So in the 5th round while Edgar was active and pouring it on I wasn't hearing them connect, which means that even if they were there was literally no power on them.

I am by no means an Aldo nut hugger, a search of my posts will reveal that I hardly talk about him. I scored this fight the way I would with or without Rogan talking. Rogan gets things right a lot, a whole lot, but when he takes up a cause he can lead people to the wrong decision.

Aldo won round 5 easily. He landed two huge punches on Edgar with the superman punch and a big right hand while Edgar did nothing but small leg kicks...all of those "comboes" didn't land, and meanwhile Aldo was landing a shit ton of jabs and left hooks while moving backwards that Goldie of all people had to point out while Rogan was completely no selling it.

Round 5 was closer than rounds 1 and 2 but there's no reason any objective person should've scored it for Edgar.
