How does Edgar deserve an instant rematch? He just lost. I don't blame him for wanting one, but he doesn't deserve it. He has to go win some fights. Pettis has a win over Henderson, plus, he didn't lose his last fight, so he's more deserving.

about the only thing in there that made the slightest bit of sense is the point about pettis.

white, silva, other analysts and fight metrics all had edgar winning. if that's not worthy of a rematch in conjunction with what edgar had to go through in henderson's same position, i don't know what is.

filestube has downloads for all modern fights. some of the old ones can get a little scarce, though, especially since the megaupload thing.

What didn't make sense?

Dana might say that he thought Edgar won, but he gave a win bonus to Mizugaki but not Edgar. He wasn't firm in his position, and well, he's pretty biased in favor of Edgar. I don't take Dana too seriously when it comes to fights. He's constantly wrong on his predictions, and he has a large amount of bias. Only 1 judge gave Edgar more than 1 round. Most people who watched thought Henderson won, and pretty much everyone who knows how to score a fight thought Henderson won comfortably. Hell, I even saw a number of Edgar nuthuggers give it to Henderson. And really, fightmetric gave it to Edgar?



49-46 Benson Henderson

owned!

note- i wasn't going by the literal "fightmetric" stats but general fight metrics i've read from various MMA writers. now i'll have to figure out who said what exactly... hang on.

EDIT: apparently "compustrike" had the fight for edgar with a 124-114 edge in total strikes landed. that seems to be what the sources were quoting rather than the "fightmetric" stats. so, in other words, the two top stat orgs split on the decision. compustrike's stat page for the fight is here:
http://compustrike.com/wp/index.php/...stats-ufc-144/

anyone who has "silverlight" installed feel free to post the image of the stats. i sure as hell am not going to install M$'s version of flash just for this one need.

After the fight ended i was under the impression that edgar threw more strikes and probably landed more. But there was no doubt in my mind that bendo landed more effective strikes. Not to mention swelling edgar's eye shut and lacerating a it of edgar's nose, all the while looking like he never even fought. Also, when the fight went to the ground, edgar did nothing, in fact bendo was more aggressive and did more damage from his back. But now some stats show that bendo actually landed more strikes.

I think that was a clear win for Bendo. People who think edgar won are probably giving too much credit for edgar catching bendo's leg multiple times, his takes downs and constant movement. I for one, dont want to see a rematch. They should let ben defend it against the diaz/miller winner. Pettis in my opinion needs another win against a top LW, i wouldnt mind seeing him fight bendo though.

Exclamation Re: MMA Discussion/News thread

OH WOW.. I got into an argument with a friend... and he told me that, If Machida went up to Heavyweight, he would trash MIR. And he also said that, Heavyweight fighters have no talent.. HAHAHAHAHA!!!


Copy and paste of what he said....

Quote:
Bahaha nah I'm not a Mir hater, I just hate the Heavyweight division
No talent really...

Welterweight, and the lower divisions are easily the best in the world atm..

Heavy doesn't have shit on Welter or Light bro

I can name about 3 people in Heavy, 2 are retired.
Lesnar, Coutor, and Mir
I can name dozens in Welter, and Light

Henderson is a great Lightweight, won the belt last weekend matter of fact, put the only other loss onto Edgar's record.
GSP would win, you know why?

GSP is easily the best p4p fighter on the earth. His wrestling is ridiculous, and he's not lost since Serra.

..Dana wants GSP to take on Silva

Nah, I told you I don't watch Heavy o_o
Heavy has no talent compared to Welter, and Lightweight divisions
Bunch of fat dudes that just knock each other out


THATS ALL THE SHIT HE TOLD ME.......You gotta be mentally ill or delusional to think that heavyweights have no talent lol. And I think this guy has been hibernating for the past 10 years lol he said Dana wants GSP to fight Silva and Dana never said that, Dana said Silva doesn't deserve a GSP fight and they arent even concerned about that GSP-Silva anymore...It's GSP-DIAZ BITCH! (although, I would love them to face each other before Silva retires)..

And he linked me to a website where they have GSP as a #1 P4P in the rankings
http://www.fighting-mma.com/top10/pound-4-pound.php


So yeah, I was delivering him some facts and here's what he got to say in response...........

Quote:
off to WoW
buddy is on
Later bro xD


GTFO!!

i think they'll match up bader vs machida.

pretty tough match for bader though, machida too elusive and will just tag bader and move in and out

i was thinking maybe shogon, but i think ufc will do shogon/rampage next
