Ok I already knew the guy was crazy by hearing his scoring of the fight but what I was surprised about in that whole bs article of his was that he makes enough money to live in a private penthouse

i dont have a problem with it. He obviously got the correct winner. who cares if it was by 1 round or all of them. frankie as he mentioned was the aggressor, dictated the pace, and in his opinion won the fight.

at the end of the day its about giving the win to the person who deserved it. not by how many rounds he defeated his opponent by.


though i scored it differently... im just a fan with other things that i specifically look for.

Judge should be blackballed. Worst judge job in MMA history.

The most biased man in the room, Frankie Edgar's trainer, had it 2-1 at the end of the 3rd(not sure for whom but I assumed Penn). So how the **** can an objective(supposedly) judge score it 5-0?

Cut him some slack; this guy was in fear for his life, apparently surrounded by BJ Penn fanboy lunatics storming his place of residence.

Yes, he does ramble, and no, I don't agree with his scoring, but his rationale seems lucid and well considered:


"And, in my considered opinion, Edgar dictated the tone of the fight, successfully implemented and executed a strategy, landed better strikes, and basically outworked Penn."

Love the rambling diatribe in the beginning. It was the equivalent of beginning a statement with "No offense, but...", which is of course going to be an offensive statement.

All hail Nero, and his burning scorecards.

His judging was fine. Maybe an extra round should've gone to Penn. But, that's BJ's own fault. We all know how sporadic the judging is. The fighters especially know.

Anyway, there wasn't one round of the fight where BJ clearly won. Aside from the last 2 rounds, the others were super close.

You can even tell at the end of the fight that BJ knows he lost

This isn't really an articles, and it's not an interview. Douglas Crosby posts on another Forum dedicated to MMA and that is a combination of all his responses. I read through the entire thread on that site right after it came out and tried to get him to answer questions but he just went on with his annoying avoiding the point statements, as you can see. I think this guy is a total insecure douchebag.
