Despite how well Frankie ended up doing, I think the first three rounds were pretty even with BJ landing quite a few punches himself, but the commentary from Goldie and Rogan made it seems like BJ was getting dominated which was not the case. This was the most biased commentary I have ever heard.

Yeah, I completely disagree as well. BJ was getting some hard shots, but Frankie was getting much more volume and really just overwhelming him, especially when he was getting those takedowns.

I though he won the first fight and 50-45 by three different judges in this fight are pretty decisive. Penn deserved that for fighting the same fight until he was gassed from shadowboxing.

BJ lost the every round quite easily but some of the commentary did seem biased towards Frankie but thats just because he throws so many shots without any power.

Well, nobody has agreed with you yet, and I don't plan on being the first one...

Frankie took BJ down like 4 or 5 times in the first couple rounds, was more active, and landed more shot and ahigher percentage than BJ did. BJ was agressive in the beginning, but I think edgar wore him down a bit.

The Judges all scored it 50-45, pretty much every website scored it 50-45 (except for a 49-46 from some dude on Sherdog), everyone I watched it with saw it 50-45, and everyone in here saw it 50-45. Goldie and Rogan weren't biased at all in my opinion. They were spot on with the commentary in my opinion.

Curious to know what fight you watched, because I think that fight was as clear of a 50-45 as you can get.

I'm not sure that this comment was needed, but it was 50-45 from where I sat. Commentary was biased, Cody, but it was a clean UD. Edgar just worked him.

Also, a Mod may delete this post, but I would like to say something.

BeeR, I understand that you're in my camp, but you make some hasty generalizations towards people. It's not like Cody aka WarGlory is a new poster to this site. He simply made a post asking the PG what they thought about this fight. You tend to jump all over people.

Calm down, brother. He was simply asking for an opinion about this fight. No need for the harsh comments.

hasty generalizations?
"give it a rest" isnt a generalization my man, its a plea not to have another- BJ got robbed thread-. I dont think its a harsh comment at all,nobody needs to calm down because nobody is hot and bothered so please dont make hast generalizations about me and dont talk down to me like I am your child.

I'm not talking about you like you're my child.

This, however, isn't the first post you've made that's been condescending. This is my personal observation. Take it for what it's worth.

"give it a rest" is a rather dickish thing to say to someone that's been a long time poster on this site. It's also very condescending.

You're a good dude. You can do better than "give it a rest."

Penn looked tired and confused what to do

Frankie edgar. Fighter of the year!!! In my book

frankie was taking bj down like a high school kid would a 5th grader in rd 1 and the dominance continued all the way through so i was never swayed by the commentary, in fact the commentary at my buddy's house was along the lines of "OMG bj is getting it handed to him".
