Melendez shouldn't even get the title shot Bendo would destroy him. He has zero chance of beating Edgar also.

I agree , he is also physically bigger. That's not taking anything away from Edgar, it would be a hell of a fight, but i agree with Dana Frankie is definitely undersized.

When Frankie got clipped early I yelled... WTF AGAIN? REALLY?!

Then I saw Gray moving in and I thought for a second it was over, then remembered how Frankie recovered last time. Then I saw the TKO and started running around the living room!!!

WAR EDGAR!!!!!

Its funny how when Edgar vs Maynard 2 was announcedd everyone including myself expecting a boring fight. Now the 2nd and 3rd fights will go down as some of the best title fights the UFC's had so far.

In two fights vs Maynard, you watched Edgar get rocked, Maynard goes for the kill, Edgar survives. Then, you watched Edgar get rocked, Maynard goes careful, Edgar knocks him out.


Melendez is likely faster than Maynard, but he doesn't hit any harder. I don't see an equation where a Melendez win is a sure thing. Based on level of opponent, I'd make Edgar the favorite.

Wow, what can be said that hasn't already? That alongside the second fight was one of the most exciting, inspirational and beautiful fights I have ever seen the UFC produce. Edgar is one of a kind, he showcased beautiful footwork and beautfiful combinations after getting battered in that first round. Eerily identical to the 2nd fight except Edgar somehow got the HUGE ko! Most importantly, Edgar displayed unrivalled HEART.

Maynard has big knockout power, and that uppercut he hit Maynard with would knockout ANYBODY. That thick dude put his until weight into that and Edgar wouldn't go down! I actually couldn't see Edgar surviving the round like he did the first time but he somehow did. Incredible. Man diplayed the skill and pricision of a Lyoto Machida and the triumph of a Rashad Evans.

I totally agree with you that it was a 10-8 1st round but I read 2 of the actual judges gave it a 10-9.
