Stupid to say , you think your champion shouldn't have won ...
After seing strikeforce's heavyweight destroy UFC's now is two ex-WEC going to fight for title ...a bit sad when you always said UFC fighters was best of best ...
Anyway , without looking points , you definitly can't have the feeling edgar won this fight ... and land punch with no power is more easy than power punches , so point become stupid sometimes ...
To finish i think henderson makes a nice champion and dana white should support him...

I understand points. Points to determine a fight are great for when the fight is close. But, as long as this is still FIGHTING, then when one fighter looks like Frankie did at the end of the match and the other fighter doesn't have a scratch on him the winner should be obvious....

I agree. I have seen somewhat boring close fights where one fighter was a better "points" fighter and out-pointed the other one, and in those cases I could agree that the one fighter "won." To me, the proper way to win a points battle is to stop the other fighter from being able to do anything, and making sure they cause less damage than you, even if both fighters take very little damage.

At a certain point, I guess if one fighter takes a little more damage, but gets way more take-downs, and controls most of the fight, I guess I could accept that they should win that via points (GSP did this in his first BJ Penn Fight).

This fight was closer even than GSP vs. Penn 1, it was not really that clear that Frankie was controlling the fight, though he certainly did a good job and kept it very close. I just think it was a very close fight except for with damage, so then the damage should be the deciding factor. Of course, judges have their own way of justifying points.

i can see 3-2 for edgar. sure, benson landed the heavier strikes, but frankie landed more. and the size difference DID make the difference. if frankie had more weight, some of his punches wouldve had more effect.

Key word, "would." The judges aren't judging who the better pound per pound fighter is, if they were, sure, frankie might have won. Alternatively, if Frankie was the same size as Henderson, he would have had a much better chance.

I like Dana but he's wrong on this one. Benson Henderson won this fight! He won on compustrike (maybe not on total strikes landed, but definitely on power punches landed and striking accuracy %), octagon control, and damage done. Edgar got some takedowns but he couldn't hold Benson down, and he didn't land ANY significant strikes on the mat either. It wasn't even cuz of the size and strength advantage, it was cuz Benson was just as fast as Edgar, he caught him with jabs and kicks everytime Edgar came in fast. Edgar wasn't fast enough for this opponent.

Dana White is gonna be biased towards Frankie Edgar every chance he gets. He's been promoting and hyping the hell out of the guy ever since the Sean Sherk fight, trying to make him the "Rocky Balboa" underdog-type fighter that fans luv to root for. It also doesn't help that in the last edition of the UFC Magazine they did like a 7-page article on Edgar, making predictions about his future dominance at lightweight, defending his belt in New York City someday, and fighting Aldo in a Champion VS. Champion type bout (like GSP VS. Penn 2). When Benson Henderson beat him, ALL that publicity and advertisement when right out the window. So clearly Dana is gonna be dissapointed.
