Edgar Vs. Henderson Reappraisal

Recommended Posts

Just rewatched the Edgar Vs. Henderson fight and not sure what I was thinking the 1st time around. Viewing the 1st time I was pretty certain Edgar had won a close fight. Watching again I realize that Henderson won pretty convincingly.

 

Not sure how Edgar can win a rematch based on what I just watched. Edgar is just too small to hurt him standing and too small to outwrestle him. I think he is going to take a pretty brutal beating.

I agree 1,000%

 

Henderson stomped Edgar in their first fight, and he will do it again.

this fight is going to make a big mess in this division, cause I only see this going to a decision and a probably a close one at that, and if Frankie wins via UD, then wtf is dana going todo. He definitely dont want to see a rubber match, since theres a back log of guys waiting in line.

He did outwrestle him handily, it just wasn't enough because of all the damage Benson did.

Bendo will stomp him again and finish him this time. No way decision frankie will grind out a UD.

 

The UFC has to sell this second fight as "controversial" to get PPV buys. Sadly' date=' there wasn't anything controversial about it. It was just a beating.[/quote']

 

Rediculous amount of win in these three posts ^^^

 

Im not sure what to think about it

 

I dont want the forums to explode with the amazing amout of win going on here

By definition, no, Edgar did not outwrestle Bendo. Nearly every Edgar takedown was because he caught a leg kick and forced Bendo down....and Bendo would get right back up before Edgar could take advantage of anything.

 

Compare that to Mike Swick catching a legkick and forcing a takedown....

 

No. Edgar did not and will never out-wrestle Bendo.

The more and more I hear that midget say, "It was controversial, I beat him...", the more and more I can't wait to watch Bendo maul him again. This time, the only controversy I want to hear about is, "Why did Bendo keep pounding on a clearly unconscious opponent."

This ^

 

... Also getting to watch Frankie cry when Bendo gets his hand raised after the fight will

be very satisfying.

 

No more lame rematches for Frankie.

Exactly.

 

Edgar's *****ing and moaning after the first fight made me lose every ounce of respect I had for him.

 

I don't understand why Edgar thinks that his "footwork" (dancing around on the outside, not really accomplishing anything)) is impressive or that it should earn him victories.
