All in all I'm pretty disappointed with this showing.

I can't be too down on it because he's only 26...maybe sometime during his peak he'll find that blend of supreme skill level and creativity that transcendent fighters like Anderson Silva and Fedor and GSP have.

We know he has the capabilities. In his early 20s he was all creativity, now he's all skill level.

Yes, Jose, it's great that you can throw every technique in the book with perfect technique. It's great that you can actually work behind a jab and have fantastic timing with pretty much everything you do.

But he saves a off the cage superman punch which landed hard and flush until the last 10 seconds of the fight. In the 4th I dont think he threw a single thing other than jab right hand.

That's unthinkably dubious for a guy like Jose.


I'm going keep being a fan and keep having high hopes for him...but hopefully something clicks before one of these days he gets caught on a bad night or gets caught on the wrong end of a bad decision.

I can't sit here and say I disagree with the decision, but those scores were just wrong. If visible damage is now the overriding decision in a close fight, then there are countless fights that have been scored incorrectly. The fact is, some guys just show damage a lot more than others. B.J. Penn is a perfect example of a guy that just doesn't show damage. He's impossible to cut.

Does Jose Also hit a heck of a lot harder than Edgar? Oh yeah. However, like most of us projected, Jose tired by the end of the 2nd round. He basically backed up the majority of the last three rounds. He was still landing significant strikes, but in the second half of the fight, Frankie was walking through them. And if those Edgar leg kicks were so weak, you wouldn't have been able to see the welts on Aldo's leg, and he wouldn't have started checking them. If anything, Edgar should've thrown more of them because they were among his most effective strikes.

Except that wasn't them being on Aldo's nuts, that was Aldo kicking the shit out of Edgar in extremely one sided rounds.

26 to 5 in the first?

If they HADNT been on Aldo's nuts then you'd really know something was up.

I get sick of people saying look at his face, seriously piss off. Pay attention to fighters faces you will see a really obivous trend the lighter the skin the more visable the bruising and really Hellboy Hansen may be the only guy who makes Frankie look tan. Hell I would bet Wesly Snipes could go a couple rounds with a prime Mike Tyson and hardly bruise. Its horribly true though white guys have much more visible discoloration that makes swelling stand out a lot more.

All in all, I'm glad the better fighter won. I have respect for Frankie, he's extremely tough and durable, but I feel like that carries him through a lot of fights. He's made for 5 round fights like I said. He seems to be impossible to finish and he doesn't get tired. Guys like Aldo and Maynard seem to out class him, but he just doesn't give up and they either get exhausted like Maynard, or start to get sloppy like Aldo. Fortunately for Aldo, he stayed in the fight long enough to get the win.

Like I keep saying, I want to see Edgar in some three round fights again against some elite fighters. See if he can turn it up early and get the win while his opponents are fresh. His heart, conditioning, and overall toughness are his best attributes and are mostly the reasons why he's made it this far in my opinion. I don't mean to be disrespectful or anything, he obviously has skills as well. Besides, those attributes are really important in MMA to have. It's more of a compliment than an insult.

Damage in effective striking is impact of strikes not physical bruising and swelling.

No one said such a thing so don't get worked up with your pigmentation rant.

I disagree they sound like a car salesman in there. When Aldo first came over when the WEC folded and they did it I just accepted it as them helping to establish him with a new fan base and sell him as marquee fighter but tonight they just gushed over him its like they are still trying to sell us on him as a legit fighter and that is why I think its annoying. Its not the actual fight calling that I have a real issue with its the man crushing.

I gave Edgar the fourth.
The third and fifth were competitive but I don't think Frankie did enough in either round.

Aldo needs to move to Lightweight.
I think he has a legitimate shot at bating Henderson.

Frankie needs to go back to the drawing board.
Should Aldo move to Lightweight, I still think he needs to win at least two or three more. Match Ricardo Lamas and Jung for the vacant title. Have Lentz and Siver fight for a number one contender spot. Give Frankie Cub Swanson.

If Aldo doesn't move to Lightweight, I think Frankie should try 135 lbs if he wants to get a belt. I think he beas ever fighter at 135 with ease. But dear god, do NOT give him an immediate title shot.

Does the Edgar man crushing irritate you just as much? For his performance, I personally think he received way too much hype in the commentary. During the fight is not the time to still be marketing.
