A new champion was crowned, Henderson earned a unanimous decision victory, but in the aftermath many, including UFC President Dana White, thought the fight should have been scored in favor of Edgar.
Edgar is calling for an immediate rematch, but the UFC is non-committal in granting him one probably because they do not want to clog up the lightweight contender line for another year.
But the fans, what do they think?
After almost 8,000 votes and a close polling result, you guys voted in favor of Frankie getting his rematch.
53.1% (4,146 votes) thought Frankie is deserving of a rematch while 46.9% (3,658 votes) said “no, the fight wasn’t close enough to warrant one. Bendo is the champ.”
Thank you to all who participated this week. Stay tuned to BJPENN.COM for our next polling.
