1,2 Alods but not in a big way, 3rd is very close, 4 for Edgar in bigger way that Aldo won first 2 and 5 is close but i would give it ti Edgar because he was more active i pushing the pace.
I can live with this one, cause close is not enough to beat champ but on the other hand it wasnt counting when Edgar was defending.

I find it funny that I view this the exact opposite of you. At 2:30 in the 3rd after Rogan made the comment about "This is where Aldo tends to fade" he switched all the way over to Frankie hype mode. I'll agree for the first 2 rounds it was all Aldo, but he went overboard the other way after that remark.

I thought Edgar had done enough to take this very very close fight. This fight is closer than what 2 judges scored (49-46).

The key is rd 3 which depending on how you look at it (damage or strikes), we'll have different winner. Anyway, no more immediate rematches for Edgar please. Give him 2 or 3 match at FW and let him work his way up. Judging from how he perform tonight, he will.

I dislike the way Aldo fights sometimes...he fights too rigidly these days. I feel like sometimes he forgets...as Chael Sonnen would say, he's in a fistfight.

Maybe a move to 155 would fix that.
Yeo you nailed it, he's too scared to explode like in the WEC because he fears he will gas quick and screw himself if he doesn't finish, 155 pounds would be great for him, but first a fight with korean zombie for fun and then 155.

I wouldn't mind Edgar eventually getting a rematch, but not immediately. He's lost 3 straight fights. I don't care how you scored his losses, he still lost.

Then again, if you put him in 3 round fights, he may not work his way back to a title shot.

All the people that think Edgar won rounds 3 & 5, can you please look at Frankie's face before the round begins and after it ends? Each time it looks like he got his ass beat....probably because he in fact did.

I'll probably stop posting in this thread for the night. I am happy that I feel this fight ended with the right guy winning in a way that should prevent another title being help up by an immediate title shot*.

*I was also concerned that if Edgar did win it would be so close Also would get an immediate title shot.

4-1 Aldo is the score gents. 3-2 Aldo is a logical conclusion, but I scored every round but the third for Aldo.

It was a fun fight. I had Aldo winning the First 3 rounds. The last round was real close, but I gave it to Frankie.
