Nah son. That 2nd fight was bad... Not that I really care because Edgar won the championship with a robbery to begin with.

i agree with you

kind of like hughes and hallman. bendo would beat more guys, but pettis beats hendo.

i can see pettis getting suffocated by guys who have a guida/fitch type gameplan, i can see khabib and khabilov smothering him, i dont see them doing that to bendo though

Also speaking of karma he lost the first fight to Benson handily and we should have gotten Benson/Pettis 2 shortly after, that was Dana's announced plan initially after Benson won the belt anyways. Instead Edgar whined to Dana and used his (apparent) pull to ensure a totally undeserved immediate rematch, logjamming the division in the process.

The questionable decision in the rematch was entirely thanks to karma imo.

Under PRIDE rules Josh probably would've won but with the 10 point must system, Benson takes that fight.
