Yeah I always defend Rogan on commentary but he was riding Frankies nuts so hard in that 5th round, ignoring everything Aldo did.

The math even shows Frankie isn't meant for the sport.

He is just to small, to weak, and only relies on point fighting to confusing the sheeple and judges.

Agreed.  I think Rogan just likes a good underdog story.  I also didn't mind too much because I'm a Frankie fan :). 

Having said that, I do think he was biased and I do think Aldo won.  He looked fantastic tonight.

Not sure I agree with 49-46 but I am positive that the judges identified the correct fighter as the winner. Phone Post

I didn't think there should have been, but I did somewhat expect it.

Damn that's not even close. Not to mention the damage wasn't even comparable. Phone Post

The thing about Frankie is that even if he lands more strikes his strikes tend to not be as powerful than the guys he fights. That's what makes it tough to give him rounds in a lot of these close fights. Unless he lands 20+ more strikes in a round it's tough to give him the nod.

It's kind of the same with someone like Dominick Cruz. He doesn't hit as hard on most of his strikes but he makes up for it in volume. To give Edgar a round he has to land a lot more strikes imo because he doesn't generally hit as hard.

This.

49-46 probably came from the Byrd.

Everyone in the UFC Top Team wanted a Frankie win.
It's so sad, they hype how they feel.

God Bless Tim Tebow - That's very misleading. Go look at the round by round stats.

the 10 point must system had aldo winning 49-46.

Frankie did land more significant strikes in each of the last 3 rounds.  Aldo was more damaging though IMO.

Can you provide a breakdown of how the overall tally is misleading based on analysis of round by round statistics?

Personally, I look at the round by round statistics and still come up with Aldo winning, the same result I come up with looking at the overall tally and the same result I came up with watching the fight.

I was wondering how Rogan was seeing all those punches landing for Edgar in the 5th round while I was seeing him hit air. The stats would back up what I thought I was seeing.

I really don't think many people would be thinking it was controversial at all if Edgar didn't get dominated so badly in the first 2 rounds.

True, but he's human. Sometimes our emotions get the best of us, not the end of the world. There's a chance he was trying to make it more suspenseful for the casual viewer. Phone Post
