Anyone else think Edgar got robbed?

I know Edgar is a magnet for controversy but I think he won 3 4 and 5.

Its a shame the guy fights his heart out and gets screwed over by the judges.

    I dunno about robbed, but yes personally i gave him 3,4 and 5... 4 and 5 no doubt 3 could be argued either way so I can't say it was a terrible decision but yes personally I gave the fight to Edgar

    I got an idea...

    How about actually being dominant or better yet... FINISHING the other fighter so that the judges don't have anything to do with it.

    What the hell do you think they were trying to do? Both guys would have liked to finish but when you have 2 world class fighters going at it, you're going to have a close fight sometimes. It would be incredibly ignorant to justify a bad judging job with that kind of excuse.

    I could have seen it going either way because of how close 3 and 5 were. I definitely wouldn't say robbed.

    i gave him 3,4 and 5 but the 3rd was could have went either way. I gave it to Frankie and I was going for Aldo...

    For the first two rounds I saw a dominant fighter taking the other fighter to town, then I saw a fighter trying to outpoint the other and score TD's for the sake of grabbing some points.

    There's a difference.

  • 1,2,3 (barely) to Aldo and 4, 5 to Edgar. Good fight, but was a bit disappointed with Aldo, hit him with the harder shots, gassed and let Edgar control the action. Thought he almost gifted the belt away. Either way, props to both fighters.
  • Nah judges got it right this time. He might have gotten 2 takedowns but he couldnt do anything with it. Fighters going for takedowns just for points dont deserve points for it unless they do some sort of damage like submission attempts or at least ground and pound.

    If you think Edgar won the fight you're blind. And I wanted Edgar to win bad!

    Not really. 3 and 5 were close rounds. Aldo definitely got 1 and 2 and Edgar definitely got 4.

    How many lighter weight title fights have ended in a finish recently? The judging needs to be better and the fact your fighter got the decision doesn't excuse that.

    I saw a Champ get tired after the first 2 rounds and then Edgar capitalizing on it. If you think for a second that Edgar's punches didn't have bad intentions behind then then something is probably wrong with you. You can't go out there and knock a guys head off every time. That's not how this sport works. Some fights are close because both guys are striving toward the same goal.

    And then "take downs for points" really? Aldo got back up because Aldo is GOOD at getting back up. Edgar was trying to hold him down but couldn't. He still landed it and it still counts.

    Edgar edged him out in 3 . 4 and 5 were also his. Good fight though.

    Well at least try to do some damage to the opponent. His fight with Benson left him bruised up all over and benson without a scratch...
    Same as this fight... Edgar face busted up ...Aldo.. well not fresh coz of that scar from his childhood lol.

    Not really. 3 and 5 were close rounds. Aldo definitely got 1 and 2 and Edgar definitely got 4.
    I just don't think I would feel right seeing Edgar win that. I gave the first three to Aldo. Edgar put on a fight but none of the shots he landed packed the power of the shots Edgar landed. They're faces tell the story.

    No, not really. Maybe robbed a round by a couple of judges but the end decision was right

    Not robbed at all. This is a recurring trend with Edgar, his fights are always so close, all decisions. He may land a few more pitter patter shots but his opponent never looks like he's been in a fight while Edgar is all busted up.

    Let's say he won rounds 4 and 5 and 3 is up in the air. It's still too close to take the belt from someone. You need to clearly beat the champ in order to take his belt.

    We're not talking' about his fight with Benson. Aldo stood there doing his best Rashad vs Nog impression for most of the last 3 rounds. Edgar doesn't have power, but he def controlled the action the last 3 rounds and if the fight continued after the 5th Aldo would have quit or keeled over.

    I felt Aldo won rds 1 and 2 decisively, rd 3 was closer but still Aldo... rd 4 was harder to judge, Frankie was more active, but aldo landed the only strikes that actually did any type of damage at all.

    Rd 5 I gave to Frankie, not as decisively as the first 2 rounds were for Aldo. Overall Aldo got the better of that fight and I'm glad the scores actually reflected that.

    No, you don't. Winning a title is no different than winning any other fight besides it's 5 rounds. You don't have to do anything special to win it.

    "I said this in another thread, the damage at the end of 5 rounds doesn't tell the story. The cardio does. If we're in a street fight and you break my nose and blacken my eye but then fall over from exhaustion, you're going to get face stomped into a coma.

    Dont say if this if that... just accept the fact he clearly lost... imagine me saying if only it was a 3 round fight.. would u still say edgar won?
    I dont disrespect edgar. He has heart and stamina for sure but for me. I believe judges shouldnt grant points for fighters who just go for takedowns just for points, unless they do some damage with it. dont u agree?

    Who cares who won? I just saw an under dog give one of the P4P's best a run for his money. Edgar should be proud of performance, even tho he loss. Great fight. Aldo won IMO. The fight we should discuss about is the horrible co-main and the division shocker by Big Foot.
