Saturday night’s UFC 150 main event showdown between Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar was supposed to settle the debate. Finally, once and for all, we would be able to have a clear and consensus idea of who the superior fighter truly was.
If anything, their rematch just made the discussion even more complicated.
Henderson and Edgar both showcased exactly why they’re two of the top fighters in the world for five rounds, there is no denything that. However, a lot of people (including us) felt like the latter won at least three of those five rounds. At least.
After coming out of the gate slow, Edgar had an answer for everything Henderson threw at him – and then some.
When it was all said and done, though, two judges had it 48-47,and one had it 49-46.
