I was watching the fight and honesty was in disbelief that it wasn't stopped. Amazing fight but if it wasn't for the belt it would have been over no doubt.

Kongo/Barry, Kongo went out twice in that fight and it wasn't stopped and Edgar never went out. There was really no reason to stop Edgar/Maynard II Frankie never stopped defending himself. It depends on how shitty the ref is deciding to be that night. You could get a stoppage like Kampmann/Daley where no knockdown happened and Kampmann wasn't even on wobbly legs or one like Danzig/Wiman where a guy has been declared choked unconscious and is wide awake.

I'm taking Frankie here. I think he learned good and well from the second Maynard fight what exactly he needs to do. His BJJ is pretty underrated, and we've seen Gray have problems with BJJ fighters before (Diaz, and Huerta had him in trouble).

Edgar by a 49-46 UD across the board.

Considering how the last fight turned out its no wonder the voting is now 50/50.

I'm rooting for Gray for sure. He already beat Frankie before so you know he has the tools to do it and he was SO close to finishing him in the first. If Gray utilizes his size/strength advantage and goes back to his wrestling he can beat Frankie. Edgar is obviously really hard to put away so at this point I think Maynard's best gameplan would be to out-wrestle Frankie and use his size/strength like he did in the first fight as opposed to going for the KO.

I dont know how any mma fan can be rooting for gray maynard to be champion.Isnt gsp enough? do we really need another wrestler stunting the growth of a division (loaded with talent)

Sure Dominic cruz/edgar might be piling on the decisions but at least they do so with the primary attack being offensive.

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering
