Frankie Edgar would like a word with you haha


I have watched this fight 4 times now, and my opinion stays the same. I still think Gil won 1,3,5. Round 2 was even for me and Bendo took the 4th. Though Rd 5 was close so I can see why he may have took the round. I'd like a rematch, but lets have Gil crush the other guys in the division and let him come back stronger

Edgar needs to rework his gameplan. You can't take that kind of damage for the first two rounds, then expect that slowly overtaking your opponent is going to pay off. He has to start faster or he will keep losing.

Kind of surprised that people are giving Bendo the fifth round. I thought Gilbert definitely landed the cleaner shots that round.

Why aren't you interested or expecting a rematch? I think Melendez beats everyone at LW besides maybe Josh Thomson or Maynard...but I'd pick him to win if those fights were ever made.

It wasn't fight of the year, but it was a good fight. And I certainly foresee them meeting again.
