Who do you give that 3rd round to? *spoiler*

Hey guys, So im assuming we can all agree the first 2 rounds where clearly Aldo, and the last 2 where clearly Edgar, and the 3rd round was close.

I thought Edgar won it by points, but still such a close round to call, who won it and why?

(I this has been posted before feel free to delete it)

Uh, sorry to disagree but I gave 1,2,3, & 5 to Aldo. I think the only round Edgar clearly won was 4.

3 and 5 could have gone either way

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Same, although I thought 5 was a lot closer than 3. Still give it to Aldo though.

I gave it to Edgar because Aldo was only jabbing and Edgar was landing power body shots and leg kicks.

Edgar can't put on a decisive performance to save his life. It's the same story after every fight.

NO, he didn't beat Aldo, NO he didn't beat benson in the rematch, and NO he didn't beat BJ in the first fight.

His problem is, he fight like he's sparing. Alot of bouncing, shadow boxing and pillow punching. Throw in a takedown here and there just for good measure, but with no top control.

I truly hope he retires, because i can't stand the constant controversy with his fights.

Poor Edgar, this guy just doesn't learn from his mistakes. You can't look to solely point fight in all of your championship bouts Frankie. You got lucky against that first fight with BJ where you undeservedly got the nod due to incompetent judging and now you are suffering the effects of karma - the judging is now working AGAINST you.

You're boring Frankie, go pick up fencing or some other points fighting sport because you're clearly not learning from your very evident mistakes.

I actually gave the 3rd to frankie and the 5th to Aldo...i really dont understand why everyone is givin the 3rd to Aldo and the 5th to frankie

i still have to rewatch the fight, but i dont remember Aldo doing much in the 3rd except for the front kick, frankie was a lot more agressive and landed a lot more shots, even though they werent power shots i dont think Aldos front kick is enough to win him the round

5th round Aldo clearly out struck frankie, im not sure if he did in total numbers but im pretty sure he landed more significant strikes in the 5th, and the first min was just Aldo jabbing edgars face in....and he closed the round well with that superman punch off the cage...

so yeah....1st, 2nd and 5th round i gave it to aldo, 3rd and 4th to Edgar...but at the end of the day the only round that was without a doubt edgar was round 4...i dont see how anyone could have scored the fight for frankie
