Great fight, close fight, i actually thought Edgar wouldnt be that good and im not the type of fan that always counts him out, i usually bet on frankie, at least against maynard anyway...but i did think benson would beat him, though i do think edgar won the rematch

anyway im getting off track here...yesterdays fight was awesome, i think ppl are overrating how much Aldo gassed, he didnt gass that much Rogan was simply being very biased, Aldo was tired but wasnt gassed, if he were gassed than edgar would have been able to do what he did to Maynard..funnily enough i think if they fought at LW Aldo would do much better

when it comes to scoring i actually dont see why so many ppl gave the last 2 rounds to edgar, seems like rogan just influenced most opinons, i dont know but to me the first 2 rounds went to Aldo and rounds 3 and 4 went to edgar, round 3 really was close but i think edgar did more, 4 was pretty much hands down edgar, 5th round was very close also but i think edgar was just more agressive, Aldo landed the more significant strikes and did very well in the beginning of the round with his jabs, edgar didnt do much in that round actually so i think aldo won the 5th

bottom line

Aldo - 1st, 2nd and 5th

Edgar - 3rd and 4th

i really think that was the right way to score the fight, i might have to rewatch it though....

I saw a small case for Edgar winning the split, but the right fighter won last night even though I picked Edgar. The fight happened exactly the way it should have. These guys are highly technical fighters with different styles. Only thing was the 3rd round. That was the pivotal round. I knew Aldo would be strong for one and two, unless Frankie pushed an extreme pace. All you gotta do is look at the Hominick fight as I said in previous posts. I didn't bet cuz I knew Edgar would have to win by decision, but if someone was a big fan of his I think it would have been a good bet to make based on the odds.

Again, Edgar is that small scrappy fighter. He even looked smaller against Aldo. Him going down to 135 would be very interesting. If he loses he's going to be in limbo. I think DW is out of line here. Let Edgar do what he wants. He's done well at 155lb. Why keep pressuring him to go down. Edgar must be in a mind bender right about now...same exact situation with BJ except he went up in class.

So fighters, before you decide to move up or down. Think very carefully about your long term goals.

I think Edgar should move back up to 155 after a few fights at 145. His speed was the key at 155. Now it's nullified.

Great, Frankie got robbed 3 times in a row. Seriously some ppl have the worst luck in the entire world. Frankie is one em.

Agree with the guy who said he is the uncrowned FW and LW champ.

Phucking stupid ass judges don't know how to do a simple job.

Frankie brings it on himself. Fight with a little more aggression and hurt some guys. You can point fight if you want but you then can't bitch about the decision.

Just watched the fight, I gave 1,2,3, and 5 to Aldo. The third was close tho, but I don't really see how people are giving the 5th to Edgar. I thought that round went to Aldo easily. But thats just me. And I muted it midway through the fourth, Rogan was getting ridiculous with the favoritism.

great fight

i gave 1 and 2 to aldo. 3 and 5 couldve gone either way. 4 to frankie


i agree joe gets on these bandwagons during a fight. so often when his voice raises an octave he will say - FIGHTER A IS GETTING ON TOP NOW! and ignore shots landed by fighter B

gives me the shits. kind of sensationalist

ive said it before and ill say it again. michael schiavello and whoever the best prof fighter/commentator is (not kenny) should get the gig

wouldnt be as loud but would be of a much higher quality/credibility

i think frankie looks faster and more powerful at 155. he lost to aldo, but dominated bendo in the rematch.. dude needs to go back up to 155

Frankie really shouldn't have any fans after he looked at the ref while hitting Gray for the finish in their 3rd fight.

If Silva or an Aldo rock someone they try to kill them. Not throw arm ounches waiting for a stoppage.

Exactly! I think Edgar gave a good performance but NO WAY he won the title. You want to become a champion? you have to BEAT the champion. I think it's reasonable that a champion has a slight edge at decisions. Maybe it's just me, but decisions are always biased in MMA. Also, the damage difference was HUGE!
As i see it, the only problem is the lack of talent in this devision or to be more specific the lack of interest after this fight. Aldo is a killer but hasn't a big name to continue his legacy.. Any thoughts appreciated!

So - Aldo vs. Pettis...

Could we see a fight where every offensive move is done off the cage? Some DragonBall Z stuff
