Well apparently he still has to prove that endurance alone don't win you fights, and yes he still has fights with Zombie, Llamas and possibly Pettis before moving on at the very least.

And saying he needs to abandon ship because his challengers are those guys? Says more about your opinion of them than it says about Aldo. Should Jones just go on and vacate his belt because Gustafsson and Teixeira aren't that huge challenges? No he should face them and clean out the division before going to HW, same with Aldo.

Aldo is still young and should stick with the lighter divisions before his body makes it impossible for him to do so. And as you saw last night, he's still very much got it at FW. He just beat the biggest challenger Zuffa has put in front of him and people still want to complain. Give him a break

I saw the fight as a clear win for Aldo. I like Frankie a lot but aside from looking busier in the last two rounds he didn't do any damage. On the other hand, Aldo inflicted a lot of damage in the first three rounds. Aldo also landed the biggest punches and kicks.

Horrible decision. You are insane with Edgar hate if you think Aldo won that fight; he didn't do shit in the third and fourth and was clearly out landed in the fifth in both significant and total strikes. Edgar is now the champion of two weight classes.

I had it 3-2 for Aldo, could have been a 4-1 but have Edgar the benefit of the doubt.

No matter what it was a clear win for Aldo in my book.

Also, if Edgar keeps having decisions go against him that he should have won, maybe he should try doing something different?

Or more accurate, champion of no weight classes.


I like Frankie Edgar, I like him a lot but he did NOT even come close to beating Aldo last night.

What you scored it is irrelevant because your hatred for him is blatant and are thus completely biased. Maybe the judges should learn to do their ******* job. He is doing what the criteria says he needs to to win the judges are ignoring the criteria.

Where in the hell is my hatred for Edgar blatant? Yes, Aldo and Bendo are two of my favorite fighters but how does that = me hating Edgar?

His last two fights with Maynard are some of my favorite fights ever and I enjoy his heart and courage as much as the next guy. So please, do not label me as a hater just because I disagree with you. If you want to have a discussion about the scoring, fine, but try to use reason instead of just crying and throwing profanities around. It makes you look bad.

And most of the major MMA news outlets scored it for Aldo as well (As did the judges obviously) so you will have to explain your view of the scoring being wrong for me to take your opinion seriously.

Thank you.

Sorry for the slightly aggressive response, but I do not appreciate being told which fighters I hate and love (especially when it's the complete opposite)

I still don't see how anyone could score that last round for Aldo. Frankie clearly outworked Jose those last two rounds, and while Jose did fire back, Frankie was the one constantly putting on pressure. That still counts for something, though judges tend to play fast and loose with Octagon control these days.

The third round was razor close and could have gone in either man's favour. At the end of the day, the right man won, and he won on damage done. Jose did more to hurt and bust up Frankie in the rounds he won than Edgar did to hurt and bust up Jose in the rounds he won. That's what this one came down to.

Close fight. Much closer than some are letting on. 49-46 is laughable. In no way did Aldo take 4 out of 5 rounds.

A lot of Frankie's punched landed on Aldo's shoulders/arms and at the same time Aldo did a great job at landing powerful and precise counters. That's why I gave it to him Just my opinion

4 Rounds for Aldo is definitely pushing it.
