    Would you agree with that statement?

    Ben Henderson was gifted a decision in his rematch with Frankie Edgar - I personally think that and most MMA fans and pundits agreed that the decision was a robbery.

    If you agree that Edgar should have beat Ben Henderson the second time around, doesn't that mean that this is a superfight between two champs? Two p4p top fighters?

    I wouldn't agree with the statement that Edgar got robbed in the 2nd fight with Benson. I wouldn't have complained if he'd gotten the nod since it was so close, but it was a long ways from a robbery.

    Robbery would be more like Hammil vs. Bisping or Paquiao vs. Bradley.

    Bendo's victory was NOT robbery. Edgar didn't do shit in that fight and got upkicked in the face and practically knocked out.

    You'll defend any fighter who's black, so you're not a valid source of opinion. Does your wife enjoy her bull more than you, you cuckold ?


    Anyway, this fight is actually the best LW in the world (Frankie) vs. a mediocre LW who had to drop down in weight class/competition to be recognized (Aldo)

    I still consider Edgar a champ at LW. He is 1-1 with Benson. That makes the fight with Aldo that much more historic and huge for the sport.

    Also, I do think the fight time a fighter holds two belts, it will be done at a lighter weight class like LW and FW. There is only a 10lb difference there so it's much more likely.

    best fighters that dont cut "too much" for their weight class, i suppose. Jose is borderline tho and pettis will b LW champ in no time

    Well edgar was soundly defeated the first fight and the second was a toss up that could have gone either way.

    No he is not the best lw.

    and yet Bendo lost to Pettis and should of lost to Cerrone in their first fight.

    Taking one fight and then basing your opinion of a fighter based on that one fight is genius.

    lol at Aldo being a mediocre lw who had to drop down. When he's fought pretty much his entire career at fw.

    It's even funnier that you are a Cruz nuthugger and are using that argument.

    I'm not talking about Bendo. Im talking about Frankie and he has looked better and fought better competiton than both Gil and Pettis.
    He should still be the LW Champ right now.
