Don't know how much to look into this... but kind of along what I was thinking. Good fight either way.

At the time of the fight I was thinking the same thing, but I have to admit I would probably need to watch the fight over again to really make my mind up. I didn't think it was a bad decision, neither of them really did much of anything to be honest, but I figured that the judges would give 1-3 to BJ because he's the champ and nothing much happened in those rounds.

when they announced the first score was 50-45 i was certain bj won and was shocked at how bad that judge was, when they said edgar i was even more shocked. wtf. he didnt do anything but dance really. to be the champ you gotta beat the champ, not put on an impressive display of cardio boxing. that said bj didnt do anything either. i hope he gets the instant rematch and realizes he needs to attack and just crush people and not ever give the judges a chance

I've been watching for them to post this all day. I had Penn winning, but I thought I'd either have to watch it again to be sure or wait for the fight metric stats. Now that they're here, all I have to say is...it was a competitive fight, but it's a shame to lose the title when you shouldn't have.

I had it 48-47 Edgar. It was very close though. No doubt about it. 50-45 for edgar is retarded though lol.

i thought the first 3 rounds were all BJ, and The 4th and 5th were close.

I love BJ Penn but I'm glad there's a shakeup in the division.

Why are people not outraged over this. People were so pissed with Machida/Shogun and that was a really close fight. This fight was fairly one sided, BJ won AT LEAST three rounds. How are people not really pissed over this.

50-45 Edgar is BS. That is completely inappropriate. That judge deserves to be dissolved of his duties.

I was on my way to grab another frosty beverage when the judges announced the scores because I was so confident that Penn won. I stopped dead in my tracks and nearly shat myself when I heard Edgar won by those scores. 50-45 really It was a close fight but 50-45?

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I had it BJ 3 rounds to 2 with MAYBE the potential for a split going BJ's way.

Basically every time Edgar came in during rds 1-3 he ate heavy shots from BJ who was consistently moving forward and controlling the center of the Octagon. Rd 4 was damn close, and Rd 5 was definitely Edgar. 50-45 for Edgar is completely unexecusable IMO

i had 49-47 for Penn with a 10-10 in the 4th. Definitely surprised that everyone in the broadcast seemed to think that Edgar deserved it with no mention of a rematch or anything. Kinda reminds me of the Forrest/Rampage fight, seems like judges reward movement even nothing becomes of it. An excellent performance by Frankie but i don't feel that the better fighter is the champ.

Well, I'm definitely pissed, but I'm kinda glad that I don't have to sift through all of the childish comments that came about from Machida/Shogun.
