Frankie Edgar very GRUMPY at the post fight press conference

Recommended Posts

He did take his loss like a man, he didn't throw out excuses when the media gave him clear opening to do so. Of course he's not going to sit around talking to people who only sit there begging him to make excuses and talk about his weight after a loss. None of the other losers even show up to the thing.

Life dealt Frankie a series of crappy cards in his last few fights. In a sensible world, he'd still be LW champion right now, but he just fell short of winning FW gold. I think a part of him also blames those people who told him he belongs at 145 when he was clearly schooling all his 155 competition. He needs to go back there and fight his way back up the ranks. Benson won't be a dominant champ, so there's nothing in the way.

O

Y Dodson is genuinely happy even with a loss.

 

Dodson is a bum off TUF, of course he's happy he was rewarded with a title shot in a division with 4 fighters, 2 of which Demetrious had already beat.

clearly schooling all his 155 competition?!?

 

he had to give two men immediate rematches because he was so indecisive when fighting them, then lost to Bendo, twice.

Dodson almost destroyed MM? 3 rounds to 2... What about Anderson Silva? 1 fight against Leben he got a title shot? Stop being so emotionally biased and look at it from a neutral perspective. Fact is Edgar needs to drop to 125 to have power.

We all know you need fricken POWER to win a fight, not peppering girl punches.

He ended up smoking BJ, Gray, and Ben. He dropped down because of bad judging and public opinion that he would be a monster at FW, which he clearly wasn't. LW is Frankie's home and he has the best chance of winning back gold there.

LW is not Frankie's home. He lost to BJ in their first fight, hence immediate rematch, Draw against maynard in which Maynard and him are 1 1 1 and Bendo beat him based on octagon control and damage, in which standup and wrestling were close. Look at all aspects Bluesy.

Rematch against BJ was because people couldn't believe what happened, so they needed validation and when Frankie schooled him even worse they finally accepted it. Frankie-Gray was back and forth with Edgar ending that feud by KTFO. And against Benson, he won both fights; first one close and second one pretty decisively. That's looking at all aspects.

2nd fight Edgar won, 1st fight Penn won, you can't win a close fight with against a champion. It's called taking the belt not defending it for the contenders for a reason. All draws should be a win for the Champion, otherwise what's the point of a belt?

Anybody notice it or is it just me? He ignored handshake with DW after

 

good. that was ignorant. after your boss hands you a free title shot against the champion in a division youve never even fought in before, i guess this means dana wont be giving him any more free title shots or rematches any time soon.

 

 

so whats next? does rematch frankie cut down to bantamweight or move up to welterweight?

welterweight please. He'd still outspeed GSP.

no thanks. it doesnt matter how much speed you have when you are laying on your back.

 

aside from free title shots and rematches, the only advantage frankie has over GSP is decision to fights and decision wins to fights won ratios. id rather see gsp vs anybody else quite frankie.

so delusional thinking frankie won the 1st benson fight

 

so delusional he thinks he won any of the benson fights, and the Aldo fight......delusional period. In Frankie's eyes you can beat him senseless, and bust up his face, legs, doesn't matter if he touches you with his toe, finger, and taps you at all on any part of your skin that is scoring, and he does just enough to give him a win.....that is delusions of grandeur! Plus I think his team, friends etc convince him that he has won.

he made a ****ing career of robbing people decisions...penn,maynard,griffin....

He was never Champ cuz he ddnt beat penn, he lost it to maynard, and he lost to bendo horribly in the first fight, and razor close the second and got kicked at 145 against a faster aldo....

he is not the LW champ and is not the best 55er anymore...

Bendo is and has shown to be strong as champ...

 

stop being butthurt edgar/fans
