How can you measure "hurt" one way or another? Is there some sort of pain-o-meter you want people to pull out to quantify how much BJ's punches hurt?It's a waste of time to even think about... Frankie landed fewer punches overall and lost at least 3 rounds.That we can quantify.

 "BJ had much more obvious power" And that was obvious how? We've seen Frankie hurt by punches before -- by Veach and even by Bocek, whom I've never seen hurt anyone with a punch. BJ routinely hurts guys like Diego and Florian who've never been hurt by punches even in higher weight classes. If BJ were landing significantly with power, how come he had no effect?

The fight was so close i could not pick a winner. But i did think Penn's harder shots had maybe given it him. Obviously a champ of Penn's stature has to win big or is danger of having inept judges see it wrong. They must've counted his take-down for giving him nearly every round on one scorecard. It could've gone either way, IMHO. But i thought Penn had edged it out...though i was worried that Edgar had done enough to sway the judges. The latter came true.Very difficult fight to judge.I would also add that, by the 3rd or 4th rd. Penn started looking rather sluggish...while Edgar looked very fresh and ready to go 5 more rounds.The judges could've also noticed this...along with the fact that Edgar frustrated Penn, landed many strikes, and got a clean take-down.

 You can't say that Frankie was ineffective with the striking. Look at BJ's face. He rarely shows damage. Many of you are not giving Frankie his due respect for how many strikes he landed.

I definetely feel like Edgar won the 4th and 5th, and probably 2nd or 3rd which gives him the fight, but to give all five rounds to BJ, I can't see it.

I have a noob question. Can the judges change the scores for "completed" rounds prior to the conclusion of the fight?Have judges ever been caught gambling on bouts they judged?
