i actually agree.
i scored rounds 3,4 and 5 to Edgar.
Saying that though, and i do see why Aldo go the decision. Even though i thought Frankie won these 3 rounds, he won them by scoring points, as opposed to inflicting damage. But i suppose technically, thats all you need to do to win rounds.
Frankie has an inept ability to adapt in the middle of a fight. I think besides his obviously physical talents, this ability he has at figuring out his opponents mid-fight is by and away his greatest asset.
id actually bet on Frankie to do the job on Aldo in a rematch. He's so bloody clever.
But as i stated, although i scored the final 3 rounds to Frankie, i wouldnt complain about the decision. But i would certainly complain about the judges scorecards, they where outrageous
