Frankie Edgar would still be the reigning UFC LW champ if Dana White was a judge.  He had the fight even going into the fifth round, and thought Frankie won the fifth.  Pretty hard to argue with that logic, as Frankie did land more punches and had more takedowns.  It is true that Ben Henderson fought a great fight, and he won the decision, but there is a saying that to be the champion you must beat the champion--and many folks did not see Bendo doing enough to win the crown.

I thought Frankie did enough to retain his title, but I try not to second guess judges.  What I can say is that the UFC ought to heed Edgar's call for an immediate rematch and have these two go at it one more time. Frankie Edgar deserves that much, and so do the fans.  It was a great fight, so let's do it again!
