The reason BJ Penn would be getting an instant rematch would be because the judges that night were on drugs. 50-45 for Edgar. Like was the judge even watching that fight? Hes clearly a Dancing with the stars fan, and loved Edgars moves. BJ won that fight 4 rounds to 1, but i could see them giving Edgar two rounds because round 3 imo was pretty close, and Edgar clearly won the last round.
This is the same thing that happened to Shogun, and hes getting an instant rematch to. I think the BJ Edgar fight was closer than the Shogun fight, but it was still a bad decision.
I hope both Shogun and BJ Penn win the rematches.
