Wait...you're going to use fightmetric to "prove" that Penn got "dominated
in a way since no one else had since GSP?" in "TWO chances, yanno?"
You realize Fightmetric--along with the rest of the intelligent universe--actually had Penn winning
the first fight, right?
I can't see how anyone who isn't a Penn hater felt the second fight was a domination
. It was a clear win on points, absolutely. But it wasn't as though Edgar was ever at a point where he was close to finishing, or ever scoring a 10-8, or anything like that.
Bearing in mind that you've established a context that Penn was dominated by Edgar, you go on to talk about Penn's failure to sink any subs or land any big shots after his TDs, illustrating that Penn was far from "owning" Edgar as a result. But wouldn't the reverse have to be true as well? How many subs did Edgar land? How many did he even attempt? did he ever have Penn in danger, or did he win on points?
I'm not making excuses for Penn. I'm not even making excuses for Penn fanboys. I'm not trying to pretend that Edgar didn't clearly win that second bout. But it wasn't domination. It wasn't ownage. It was points fighting
. It was the same stuff that people hate on Georges for, or hate on Bisping for, or even Sherk or Guida, but with a little better striking thrown in.
I like Frankie. He seems like a swell guy, and I hope he destroys the world at FW. But he's done nothing in the last 5 years to have his name be used in the same sentence as "dominant."
So please. If you're going to start out a post with "that's one of the stupidest things I've ever heard" don't put stupid shit in your post. If you're going to stand on facts
, please make sure you have them correct.
