    What did you think of the title fight between Edgar and Maynard at UFC 125?

    I watched an incredible title fight between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard. Sorry for those that haven't seen it yet, but it ended in a draw. I created a hub and did full commentary on the event, which at the time I thought Edgar had snatched it. The rematch has been confirmed, so hopefully the next fight will decide it.
    Did you agree with the decision?

    I actually didnt see the fight...but honestly I usually hate a 3rd fight between 2 ppl. Also the bad thing about it to me is that it doesnt leave much room for a 4th fight....since chances are that the loser will be back for the title again and theres a good chance the winner will defend the title until then...I dunno I guess its the right thing I just wish there would have been a clear winner.

    In brief, Maynard destroyed Edgar in the 1st round and it could have been over very quickly. Edgar held out (some how) and regained his composure in the next round. Maynard effectively punched himself out in the 1st and the following 4 rounds were going back and forth.
    Great fight for fans, but a really tough one to call. I agree with the statement "You need to beat the champ to be the champ" and Maynard failed to do that for me. It was far from Machida vs Shogun 1 where Shogun clearly won.
    Im gutted for Anthony Pettis, who should have been fighting the winner. After his incredible flying kick (can be found on youtube) I was really looking forward to seeing him fight again, it could now be a while before we see him again.
