Watch the fight. Shogun looks like he does more damage or hits harder maybe? but Machida lands like four knees every time Shogun lands a leg kick or a body punch. it is like that in almost every exchange. I liked the fight because of the skill of both the fighters, but the only way Shogun beats Machida is by KO him. Machida lands hits just too many times and then moves out of the way.

Who won the fight...hmm, lets see: how bout the guy that made BJ look like the beaten fighter at the end of the fight and had the belt put around his waist at the end of the fight. I am pretty sure that that was the guy who won the fight. Some have an issue with the decision. BJ certainly didn't look like he did.

Is BJ the better fighter, yeah, more than likely. But on the night I think that it is pretty clear that he lost.

Frankie gets to fight who he wants next and BJ can wait. An immediate re-match is not needed nor realistic, IMO.

This. It was close but Edgar's work rate was the difference in that fight.

I had BJ 48/47, but seriously the result did not surprise me (except for the 50-45 for Edgar, wtf?).

Mr. Sparkle pretty much sums it up in his post, especially the part where BJ didn't have a hissy fit about the decision. Do I think Edgar did enough to win the fight? no, should there be a rematch right away? yes. I think BJ could have done more to finish the fight, he looked kind of like the old BJ, no where near the fighter who destroyed butt pucker face Sanchez or Kenny Florian. Never leave it in the hands of the judges, especially when they have people who could score that fight 50-45 in anyone's favor.

BJ won the 1st 3 rounds for sure. And i gave him the 4th to, even though it was close.
