I wasn't saying Edgar won the fight, or even should have won the fight, holy shit you guys draw conclusions out of the simplest statement, I was just saying it was IRONIC that he was medically suspended longer than him, that's all

They're just working on the myth that most of Frankies face damage came from the upkick, even though his eye started swelling and bleeding before the upkick ever happened.

jesus some of you are really teetering on the 80 IQ brinkben is only suspended if he doesn't see a doctor to be cleared, if he goes to a doctor who examines him and says there's no serious breaks he's good to gowhat a desperate attempt to try to discredit his win, just patheticso if nate diaz had fractured his hand in the cerrone fight smashing cowboy's face in and been suspended for 4 months and cerrone was suspended for 2, that means cerrone actually won? the UG is unreal

Ok.1. Benson landed more than one significant strike.2. The upkick wasn't even what fractured his heel. It was with a different foot.3. Are you seriously trying to suggest that Frankie purposefully broke Benson's hands? How would he do that? I don't seem to recall Frankie kicking or punching specifically Benson's hands...

Do people have no clue how these suspensions work??? The 180 days is just some meaningless number, they are basically saying, go to the fucking doctor and get an X-ray. using the suspensions as evidence that Benson was more injured coming out of the fight is retarded.
