Let's not get carried away: Edson barely beat Njo and lost to Pierson...
THANK YOU. i think you could have made a case njok won, but it was hella close. but i am still not sure how barboza got the decision against pierson. with some questionable decisions you can at least see the logic, maybe a guy didnt land as much but the shots he landed were very damaging (wanderlei/bisping), or a guy pushed the pace and landed more punches against a guy that didnt throw his hands enough (rampage/machida). but pierson pushed the pace and landed more, and never really got rocked, so i just dont understand that decision at ALL.
i think thats what annoys me the most about the barboza hype. he could very easily be 1-2, yet because of some questionable judging and the fact that he is flashy he is seen as this big time prospect. if the judges gave njok and pierson those decisions, nobody would be talking about barboza. hell, he might have gotten cut after an 0-2 start in the UFC. but because of a couple judges instead of being out of the UFC he is being talked about in the same sentence as Jose Aldo .
