In the 2nd fight Frankie outstruck Bendo 3 out of 5 rounds(2,3,5), outstruck him in totals through out the fight, had more TDs, more sub attempts, and No one passed guard.
Edge Edgar. He'd still be the champ. TBH I truly dont see any current LW beating LW Penn twice and Ko'ing Maynard.
The Big difference between him and Diaz/Sonnen is that he actually was a UFC Champ, and a pretty damn good one. (considering the history of the LW division.) Sonnen was a former challenger, Diaz interm challenger.
So Frankies deffinetly got a "better" case then Diaz and Sonnen.
WITH that said, I still hold Frankie in the category of "tainted" challengers.
