But he was so in shape and motivated!

Seriously though, he was totally outSKILLED tonight. 10% of the domination had to do with size, the rest was technique and conditioning. Macdonald was the better fighter tonight period.

I gave the first fight to Bendo, easily, but Edgar won the rematch. For what its worth, I am a much bigger Bendo fan than an Edgar fan.

MacDonald was clearly better, and was better at every range, but I can't say it was only 10% due to size. Penn has an excellent chin, and can go blow for blow with most guys his size. This would not have been an option for him tonight. Rory would have knocked him out in a slug fest.

It's possible, but what I do know is that the rematch proved that his best was never good enough. About three of those rounds could have gone either way, no way was he robbed.... The man didn't dominate his opponent for a single moment.

We just saw a different fight. I thought Edgar won at least as clearly as I had Shogun defeating Machida in their first bout.

You're both right and wrong here. The clear round was Edgar's and I think he did enough to win all but one of the close rounds. He didn't win clearly in terms of moment to moment, but round to round there wasn't much of a clear way to give a lot to Henerson.
