Although I will say his chain wrestling is actually quite poor and has always been. He sort of just fizzles out if you stop the initial shot, which is what Aldo's best at.

I had Aldo winning the first three rounds. Good fight, but can we PLEASE let Frankie have a regular fight now that he's on a 3-loss streak? Let the kid earn a title shot like everybody else for godsakes.

He's great getting you down but like you said if you stuff it a little he gives up and he also doesn't control on the ground that well, if he applied a bendo wrestling style when he gets on top I think that helps him a lot more. Too many times you can't tell id frankie landed or not and how good he landed

He doesn't have good physical attributes to wrestle like guys like Bendo.

He's not really that big, he's quick but not explosive, he's got decent strength but definitely can be overpowered. He's got great drive and determination though, he did slam Aldo and even Maynard in their fights.

Plus he's technical but he's no Ben Askren...it's not like he was a NCAA Champion or a USA Wrestling member.

I thought Edgar received relatively regular commentary, I mean there is always some degree of man crushing or selling done by Goldie and Rogan. But every time Aldo threw a leg kick they went on a 3 minute rant about his leg kicks and brought up the Faber fight and OMG, I get it there nasty as leg kicks but I don't get it because they ranted for five minutes I get it cause it sounded like a tree being cut down and Frankie's leg is red as shit. I am just glad he stopped throwing those leg kicks cause I couldn't listen to that shit again. Rogan is usually better at actually describing the technical aspects or describing how fighters do things instead he just seems to go on about how great Aldo throws leg kicks.

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.
I guess it all depends on your interpretation of "better fighter." If better fighter means the guy who's more physically gifted, the guy who's more dynamic, the guy who hits harder, then yeah, the better fighter won. But if Aldo had Frankie's heart, and Frankie's work ethic, then that fight wouldn't have went five rounds. I guess I just hate seeing what I perceive as untapped potential. If you're not ready to go hard for 5 rounds, then either you shouldn't be champ, or you should move up a weight class. I realize he was off for more than a year, but come on now. The fact that he still managed to beat a guy like Frankie in spite of all that, just goes to show that Aldo still has much room for improvement.

I had Edgar winning the fight via my fan bias.

Really close fight, I would say in a 5 rounder Aldo won it since I believe in the whole "you gotta beat the champ to be the champ." but had an additional 2 rounds been added to the fight Aldo would have lost it. Two great fighters, what can you do. Just kind of feel bad for Edgar since he can never really catch a break.

I had Aldo a pretty clear 48-47. Possible 49-46.
