    i only saw the 4th and 5th round of bj vs edgar

    but from what i saw, frankie had that easily

    landed harder shots, and scored takedowns, and bjs face was fucked up lol

    how many take downs did bj score prior to rounds 4 and 5?

    most significant damage bj did during the entire fight were the shots he landed in i think round two when edgar tried to take him down.

    other than that, he was getting the shit beat out of his legs, body, and face.

    hey, im gonna let you in on a little secret okay?

    when a fighter wrestles his opponent, CONTROLS him, and constantly pushes the pace/pressure and keeps smashing his face in, its called GROUND AND POUND, not lay and pray

    see what i mean, you know the least about mma

    youre logic and mindset is retarded as fuck

    kongo was bleeding from his nose and mouth, just cause he wasnt all lumped up and shit doesnt mean cain was laying and praying, just means his shots werent too damaging

    dumbass :funny:

    Off the top, I only recall BJ checking one kick. Because I remember thinking "wow, Bj checked a kick."

    ha, haven't seen him around much.

    I really think Edgar's speed advantage made the difference here though. Not convinced we'll see Bj losing at lw on a regular basis just yet.

    bj didnt decisively lose, end of story

    did he lose a regular non-title 3 round fight? yeah

    but its always been to take the belt it needs to be DECISIVE

    why doesnt shogun have the belt??

    Disagree.

    Edgar decisively won and Shogun decisively won.

    When you're dealing with legit world class fighters, expecting a lopsided fight is kinda silly. Any title match worth its salt should be very competitive. It's like the end fight scene in a good movie - the bad guy almost wins every time. If he didn't, it'd be boring.

    What's important is that Edgar came to win just like Shogun did. They went up against invincible guys and made them look human.

    Nah, fightmetric sucks because people look at it as the end all be all and it isn't. It's a system of numbers created by humans that poses as the judge.

    wanna see something interesting?

    nah wait. stop. why is your god better than this one?

    I wasn't even pro-fightmetric when it agreed with me on rua-machida.
