I think Aldo won clear enough. I gave him 1,2 and 5. Rnd 4 for edgar and the 3rd was close.

I think Edgar just shaved it. I gave him rounds 3, 4 and 5. 5 was close though. Rounds 1 and 2 to Aldo.

Judging at UFC is almost criminal at times. The two that gave it to Aldo 49 - 46 should be arrested.

I guess I should be arrested to because I thought Aldo won rd 1 2 3 & 5

so on my scorecard I had Aldo winning 49-46

In close contested rounds the champ should get the edge just my opinion.

Rds 1 2 & 5 for Aldo. Significant damage in the rounds that he won. Rd 5 was close and 3 was closer. Great fucking fight.

I actually agree with you there.

Me too. If I remember right someone in the UFC mentioned this after Shogun fought Machida for the title.

I could not disagree more, if a round is that close where you think " well hes the champ give it to him", then the round should be scored a 10-10 rd,

No one should ever be given a round due their name/title

I personally think frankie won the fight, but the fight was so close it could've gone either way.I gave aldo 1, and 2 and edgar 3,4,5. I think frankie was the aggressor and controlled the pace and seceured the takedowns but aldo inflicted more damage and was more effective in his striking. I think crisp,clean shots score more than fast wild shots that don't land.

I thought Aldo won 4 rounds to 1.

Round 1 was clearly Aldo's and was the easiest round of the fight to score

Round 2 Edgar landed his first takedown but Aldo immediately stood back up and continued to get the better of the striking battle.

Round 3 was when Edgar started to pick up his work rate striking and started coming back, but his 2 takedowns in the round were stuffed and he took a big kick to the face that started his nose bleeding which was the most damage done in the fight. I gave Aldo that round as well for the damage and octagon control but it was the closest round of the first 3.

Round 4 was Edgars, he had the slam takedown and got the better of the striking exchanges.

Round 5 I could see being scored for either fighter, Edgar landed a few more shots but mostly to the legs and body, while Aldo scored late with the shot off the cage and a final flurry. I gave it to him based on damage and takedowns defended but I could see it scored for Edgar.

I had ppl over and the managed to keep me from really watching it as close as I would like. But I thought Aldo won it fairly convincingly.

I wish I could see the fight to give a good breakdown. All I have are play by plays, post fight shows/articles, stats, and video clips. I won't make an official judgment until I can actually see the fight.

Metrics has Edgar landing more strikes in 3,4,5, but Aldo landed more head shots in all but one round... so it's total strikes vs head strikes

Edgar would appear to be the aggressor with all the takedown attempts, but I heard that Aldo controlled the center of the cage more. Also, failing at takedowns could imply that the other fighter is in fact controlling where the fight takes place by stuffing them/fighting them off (octagon control), even though attempting so many takedowns is being aggressive (aggression).

Sonnen and Cormier both had Edgar eeking it out with total strikes, aggression, and takedowns, but Dana had Aldo winning the fight.

Another analysis had Aldo on the retreat in the late rounds, yet landing shots in doing so.

I have also heard that a champion can't lose the belt in a close decision (you have to beat the champ to be the champ), but in the past couple of years I have seen a champion lose the belt in close decisions, which contradicts that philosophy, so I wondered if they eliminated that "policy".

I never understood that point of view. Shouldn't it be based on some criteria that is relevant to the fight itself? The mysterious "edge" described here sounds so subjective.
