Er...That's sarcasm right?

Yup. This mentality in the interview isn't the mentality he needs if he ever wants another shot at the title either. A lot of people are tired of Edgar and his style which is pretty much asking for a close/controversial decision. They're tired of seeing him in these inconclusive fights. It's not a coincidence we're seeing that with him over and over again. If he wants to get back to the top, and quickly, he needs to come into every fight with a finishing mentality to say "Ok, I realize that focusing on winning the decision isn't the way to get me back to the top. I'm going to evolve and start focusing on finishing guys consistently to show I'm at another level now and deserve another title shot." Otherwise a lot of people aren't going to be interested in seeing him in a title fight ever again.

When a guy like Frankie is fighting his ass off, the round is coming to a close, and he can't seem to put the other guy in serious danger, what would you have him do? "Fuck it, he wins. Maybe next time."

Am I the only one that's completely fine with the idea of Frankie boxing up Charles for a decision? I think he can get the finish, but I just don't want too see him lose again........ it hurts so much....

I'm assuming he's referring to Benson (since he spent most of his career at 155), and if are talking about whole careers, both 145 and 155 champs have more finishes. Even if you look at their last ten fights or so, they both still have more finishes.
