Yeah, but I still think 4-1 Aldo is closer to the right call than a 3-2 for Edgar would have been...

I had it 3-2 for Aldo but it was close to a 4-1.

I disagree. 3-2 either way is much closer to what really happened than 4-1 Aldo. Aldo faded in the championship rounds and Frankie was finding a home for that right hand.

Yeah but faded or not, Aldo was landing powerful counters throughout. I feel that 3-2 Aldo is the right call for this one, and I feel that 4-1 or 2-3 would've been wrong either way.

Edgar had a much better case for feeling sorry after the second Bendo-fight than he did here.

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)
Yeah claiming that he only wins by endurance isn't clear bias. You are his biggest fan ever belittling everything he has done by turning it into some delusional false reality you have created within your own mind.

There is no argument for Aldo winning the third or fourth round. He was thoroughly out struck in those rounds. Here is the explanation for Aldo winning the third things that didn't happen and front kick make loud slappy noise. The fifth was basically 3 different fights in one. In the first part Aldo was out pointing him as they exchanged jabs and glancing blows for the most part, then Edgar heavily out landed him for about 2 minutes, and the last minute and a half was evenly contested with both guys landing solid strikes. Saying Edgar's face looked worse doesn't mean anything. Aldo did almost all of that with jabs in the first two rounds; cutting a guy up with your gloves doesn't have anything to do with whether or not you won a fight.

I don't recall ever making the argument that Aldo won because Edgar "looked worse for wear."

If you still feel like Edgar outstruck Aldo enough to earn the W, please take a look at this. Since you use the word "outstruck" you must dig statistics:

Aldo landed most strikes to the head in each and every round, and, statistically, outstruck Edgar in this fight. Pure and simple.

Ridiculous, Edgar did not come close to beating Aldo last night.

If you break it down round by round, Aldo loses rounds 3, 4 and 5 according to that.

Did you look at those fake stats? Because they counted all of Aldo's jabs as significant strikes.

I have proven their numbers to be wildly inaccurate multiple times in the past and this just further cements how worthless anything they post is. Made up numbers aren't statistics.

I forgot to mention how absurd you holding up the "MMA Media" score cards is earlier. Those are not experts and if you listen to them talk you realize at least 70% of them are addle brained retards.

...The poll was close like the fight results. Aldo pretty much controlled the first 3 rds with that stiff, snapping jab and landing hard shots that wrecked Frankie's face. Aldo's legkicks were hitting the butter spot on Frankie. Why he abandoned them..dunno. If Aldo landed 3 or 4 more of those wicked, power-chopping legkicks on Frankie, he could have well finished him right there. Edgar's left leg was getting smashed. In typical Edgar fashion, he coes out stronger in the 4th & 5th. Great fight. These championship decision losses that Frankie is having must be a bitch to deal with. Hats off to Edgar's heart. Hats off to leaving it all out there too...

...Gotta say easily the biggest, nastiest upset so far of 2013 and maybe for the rest of the year...Overeem getting brutally knocked out...What's to say?

You haven't proven anything. Your opinions are as worthless as those you are disregarding.

The only 'fact' in this whole thing is that Jose Aldo won. Get over it.
