Very close fight not as close as Machida/Shogun which prolly was a tie. I think however BJ will win the rematch.

Rounds 1 and 2 were clearly Penns

Round 3 was closer but Penn edged it with more effective/damaging strikes

Round 4 was a draw but if i had to give it to anyone it would be Edgar

Round 5 was clearly edgars

I think the problem is still the way they judge fights. Frankies main weapon in that fight was his leg kicks, besides from that he landed some average punches that didnt seem to effect BJ much. So I guess it comes down to how valuable do you perceive those leg kicks to be.

All I know is Edgars leg kicks wer'nt half as effective as Rua's yet the judges gave Frankie alot of credit for his kicks and Rua none! Makes no sense to me

Am looking forward to seeing this fight again maybe I will have a clear picture then of how close it was, but I seriously believed at the time that Edgar clearly won.

It came down to strategy in my initial opinion on the night, to me Penn was predictable he took the exact same approach as he did against Sanchez and it looked to me like thats exactly what Edgar was expecting and he was able to execute a strategy to counter the way Penn fought perfectly like it had been worked on in training.

As a result it looked like Edgar was ready and prepared well to handle what Penn brought into the octagon where as Penn was not prepared to handle the speed and movement of Frankie and Penn never imo pinned Edgars timing, and as a result Edgar was able to be the aggressor and land more shots while Penn was trying to figure out how to get the fight down to the pace he wanted but never quite got there.

BJ won way more than most of the extanges.

He stalked damn near the entire time.

Stopped almost every takedown .

Was never in trouble at all or hurt.

He threw less... but landed more...

IMO he won that fight..

This fight warrants more of a rematch than the Machida Shogun fight. What people seem to be forgetting is that you can not judge damage. You can not judge how hard someone hits. Machida landed like 4 times more strikes than Shogun and will do so again in a rematch. Machida is someone you have to finish to beat because he is a point based striker.

Frankie moved well and landed more shots in the later rounds. The third was really anyones round IMO and the judges gave it to Edgar. This fight I would not disagree with a rematch as much as I do with the Machida Shogun fight.

I don't see how people are giving Edgar the 3rd.
I agree. I dont see what fight they were watching. You have to remember just cuz you bounce around doesnt win you that round. I saw Edgar get punched in the face many times in that round and he didnt like it and ran away. Sorry but i'm going to say it. BJ was robbed.

Bas Ruten just said on inside MMA he thinks BJ won the fight and Bas knows all.

It should, since BJ hasn't been beaten in LW division since 2002, and all of a sudden he does, and not in a very dominant fashion.
I'm no referee, so i'm gonna stick with Edgar.

Actually, according to FightMetric, Shogun landed almost twice as many strikes as Machida.
