I love Aldo, like Frankie too, wanted Aldo to win but there is no fckin way in hell Frankie didnt win 4 and 5. It came down to 3 and that was almost too close to call.

But 2 judges with 49-46?

W.T.F?

The only round Edgar definitely won was round 4.

DoomFarmer -  Edgar only won round 4. Phone Post

I had originally scored Aldo 1, 2, and 3, and Edgar 4 and 5, but after reviewing the FightMetric data, I have to agree with DoomFarmer.

Edgar only won round 4.

Superman punch off the cage in the last few seconds probably gave Aldo the 5th, sad but true. Front kick to the face would have given Aldo the 3rd and Aldo clearly won rounds 1 and 2. That is where I am guessing they got the scores from anyway. The judging in MMA is total bullshit and has been for years, they need to do something about it. I still give Aldo the win but the scorecards at the end were fucking unbelieveable.

To win the belt, a lot of judges wont' give a fighter the round unless he truly dominates. 

 

Problem with edgar is he doesn't dominate, he just barely does better, and when it comes to the beating the champ thats not enough.

Out-landing Edgar 6 to 3 in power strikes to the head, out-landing 8 to 5 in jab strikes to the head, and stuffing 2 takedown attempts won Aldo the fifth round (according to FightMetric).

There's nothing sad but definitely truth in that.

Ah, come on, you're smart enough to know that fightmetric is often misleading.

I've gotta re-watch the fight, honestly, to get a more objective look at the 5th. I agree that 4-1 is possible, though


yeah of course, i'm just saying that if two judges and fightmetric saw it that way then it must be at least somewhat rooted in reality.

personally i thought it was pretty even going into the fifth but i've come to grips with the fact i just can't judge edgar fights for shit.

It's Frankie's style. He tries to outpoint his opponent for each round. Besides round 4, the rounds he could've arguably won were much closer than the rounds Jose won. Frankie needs to stop going out there with this blasé mindset like he's out there sparring. I'm not saying he doesn't have heart, he just doesn't have that killer intinct.

Ok guys, watched it again, sorry, i was wrong - it was a CLOSE round - though still dont think it was a clear round for Aldo at all.

Up until the super man punch, which could have been the hardest shot of the round, I had Frankie ahead.

I think both 3 and 5 were almost too close to call.

I have a hard time giving Frankie the fight knowing he got beaten into a pulp in the early rounds and did nothing himself other than 1 slam and pitter pat punches that did zero damage

Even Aldos jabs were snapping Frankies head back violently

Yes, Aldo won the "fight." But he also slowed in 3-5 so....

And since we're scoring by round.....

Aldo lost his definitive edge somewhere into the 3 round. I was going for him.
