Edgar gets so much credit for missed punches. It is a real problem in MMA usually. Judges can't separate a landed strike from a missed strike. And neither can some fans.

It was a close fight, but Aldo won. Edgar had a better 2nd half and that is what people remember. Aldo won 3 rounds. Edgars TDs got stuffed pretty much all night.

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.
And you're an expert I assume? Listen to yourself mate. It's getting absurd.

Fightmetric has Edgar winning the fight 3-2. Aldo only outstruck him in round 1 and 2 according to that.

I don't really understand how landing more punches wins a round. Certainly power and damage of shots has to come into play as well. 3rd was fairly close but I gave it to Aldo. He punted him in the face.

Problem with Edgar is he wins very few rounds decisively, even when he "wins" them there is usually some doubt.

I was just speaking about Aldo outstriking him as fightmetric was brought up as defense. They have rounds 3, 4 and 5 Edgar landing more significant and more total strikes in those rounds.

Damage should be taken into account, but volume of strikes is bigger imo. If someone gets hit 20 times with good shots but he landed 1 good shot that broke someones nose, he did damage but still should lose the round as a whole.

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.

WTF? Did you bet your house on Edgar? There's no need to get so worked up because some guy you've never met didn't win a decision. Debating is fine, but acting so belligerent is flat out ridiculous.

I watched most of the engagements frame by frame, Aldo's footwork and head movement are a work of art, too bad he seemed to gas in the later rounds.

Edgar's adapting during his fights is amazing, when Aldo started chopping his legs he began taking him down, Aldo realized trading a leg kick for getting taken down will not win him the fight and stopped.

I felt Aldo won, but I became biased because of Rogan's bias for Frankie, so atrocious I had to mute it. Frankie was so sad at the end, I feel sorry for him.

Can't wait for Jack Slack's breakdown of the fight.

Man, Frankie just cannot win a decison these days. I thought he won the last three rounds by a wide margin.

I was specifically talking about one out striking the other as that was what I was responding to. Let's read before we respond.
