    Total strikes landed were close. But Benson was the who doing damage to Frankie.

    Frankie won that second fight soundly imo...he did drop benson. Frankie capturing the belt at 155 and arguably beating the 155 champ but soundly loosing to the 145 champ shows the greatness of Aldo. I actually think frankie could beat pettis but Aldo would soundly beat edgar again.

    Which fight are you talking about 1 or 2? Benson clearly won the first fight and Edgar should have gotten the nod in the 2nd one.

    If Frankie is still upset about it, then why doesn't he go up to 170 and call out Benson?

    I think Edgar has a better chance of beating Pettis than Aldo, Aldo's defensive wrestling is just to damn good.

    No Benson wasn't hurt, he just didn't have his balance when Frankie got that knockdown, he was unfazed.

    Pettis's defensive wrestling looked pretty good against Gilbert, I think Frankie is going to end up in JDS land.
