What about when he knocked Maynard out?

That's exactly what I'm talking about. Has him on Q Avenue and then is waiting for the ref to stop the fight. Most UFC fighters would have gone in there and went for the kill.

So you are upset that Frankie didn't want to keep punching a corps and wanted the ref to do his job? Cause I don't think anyone in the world called it an early stoppage.

I agree, I hate Frankie and his style of fighting. He gets more annoying with every fight. But I don't like your example with Gray. Other then that, I'm on your side.

I'd love to see this fight, two skilled fighters who are two of the toughest most entertaining fighters in the game. I couldn't see anyway this would not make for a great fight. I hope they set this one up.

It's hard to be a fan of Frankie because some people are calling him the uncrowned lightweight and featherweight champion. In that case, I'll call a fresh Maynard the uncrowned lightweight champion. He's only 1-1-1 against Edgar after all and seems to out class him when they both are fresh. May be ridiculous logic of me to use, but that's how I see their logic behind him being a multiple divisional champion. Edgar lost, get over it.. You're not a judge, you're not trained to be a judge, well at least I'm assuming that. Edgar should just use these incidents as motivation to train harder so he can out class his opponents without a shadow of a doubt.

I realize it's unfair to blame Frankie for some of his fans remarks, so that's why I'm on the fence about him as a fighter.

Anyways, to stay on topic.. I think he could beat Swanson, but apart of me sees another controversial decision. I just hope if Edgar wins, he can make it a decisive win because I feel like this forum blows up every time he fights. Swanson has improved so much though so I expect this to be quite competitive.
