Edgar--while I wouldn't say it was a "dominant" performance, as it was entirely predicated on scoring points and staying out of danger--beat him convincingly the second fight, and that is an accomplishment pound for pound, as Penn is significantly bigger than Frankie.
No, it wouldn't be fighter bashing, and I agree that dana is a dick, and one who knows absolutely nothing about pound for pound.
Agree, the first fight bj was doing well and gsp got nice takedown to get the decision and the second fight no arguments there. The first fight with edgar was controversial and the second fight frankie clearly won, but did he ever have bj in trouble or have him hurt, no. edgar would not engage as to get a finish standing, and would go for a takedown when he wanted to get out of the standup and clearly won on points. If i had to choose who would be more likely to finish the other between bj and frankie it would still definetly be bj, frankie wouldnt be able to finish him but would fight for points, which he usually does. really looking foward to maynard/edgar...
Yes, dana says some stupid shit a lot, im not saying that he doesnt know anything but you question what he says on many occasions. after so many fights with a striker and a wrestler he will always say after the fight if the striker lost "i dont understand why he didnt throw more kicks"
