I had round one for BJ, two and three for BJ(these were super close but i went with the "You have to beat the champion" theory to seal them for BJ, and 4 i had Edgar winning by a thin margin, and 5 clearly for Edgar. I saw it as 48-47 for Penn, but 1-4 were very close and I can see Edgar getting the decision. This was a very close fight so I can't really say BJ got robbed, but i personally didn't think Edgar did enough to win a decision over a champion.

I actually thought Penn won rounds 1 and 2 pretty easily. Edgar boucned around a lot but whiffed on most of his punches. Three and four were really close, I gave round 3 to Penn and round 4 to Edgar. Edgar clearly won round 5.

I had it 48-47 for Penn. But honestly, I didn't really think it was a robbery or anything. At the end of the 5th round I really thought it could have gone either way.

I have Edgar winning. Didnt even doubt it until I read posts like this on the forum.
Thought it was pretty close but would have thought it to be bad judging if they gave Penn the nod.

I had penn winning 3-2, but it was close enough that I was okay with Edgar winning 48-47.

The judge that scored all 5 rounds for Edgar was full of shit. Penn clearly won the first two rounds IMO.

Honestly, i had BJ winning on mine. I think he defintely won the first two, although still tough to score, but the better shots from BJ give him the clear advantage i thought, Frankies TD in the 2nd was pointless i thought as BJ was back up with in 5 seconds with no damage done. The 3rd and 4th were really close and could go either way but i gave gave the 3rd to BJ for the cleaner more powerful strikes and Frankies failed TD attempts. the 4th i gave a 10-10 and the 5th Frankie was just way more active and i gave him that round.
I had BJ winning, and scored it virtually the same as this. I think the main things that swayed it in the judges eyes, were that Frankie looked so much busier with constant movement, and the little marks under BJ's eyes, coupled with Edgar pushing the fight in the last round got him the win.
It was definitly close, and I can't really complain if either fighter won. There were two things that puzzled me though, and they were A) I couldn't help thinking why BJ either bothered staying up when Edgar tried to take him down, as I felt standing pre fight was Edgars only chance of victory, and B)how the one judge scored it by a 4 to 5 point difference in Edgars favour, when the fight was tighter than a nuns (uh hmm ).

I thought that BJ had won the first 3 rounds, but everybody who was watching with me thought that Edgar had every round but the first. To be honest though I had too much to drink, so I don't think my opinion is worth much...


To add some more content:

I felt like BJ was definitely landing harder and crisper shots. The first takedown Edgar landed didn't mean anything as far as I'm concerned, because BJ was on the ground for less than two seconds. Frankie definitely threw more and landed some good leg kicks, but I would score solid shots to the face above leg kicks any day. Also, while Edgar threw in flurries, it didn't look like all too many of those strikes landed until the later rounds -- to my admittedly inebriated eyes anyway...

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

I thought the rounds were very difficult to score. But looking at the fight as a whole instead of scoring it by rounds I think Frankie won. Obviously that's not how it works though.

48-47 Edgar with Frankie getting the last 3 pretty solidly.
