  1. Penn was the smart pick, but I can't say I'm surprised at all. Before the fight I said that Edgar actually had a shot here and could at least tire Penn out more than anyone Penn's faced so far. Edgar is a better wrestler and boxer than anyone Penn has beaten before (especially since Sherk did not even try to wrestle in their fight).

    Edgar is exactly the type of fighter I like to see succeed. The only reason I'm not happy to see Edgar win is that he already lost to Maynard, and likely would again simply by being so much smaller and enable to get out from under Maynard. The bright side is we could see Penn's options open up (unless he quits fighting all together).

  2. Sucks that the judging was so bad. That's the kind of thing that really hurts the sport.
