And the Gray Maynard vs. Frankie Edgar debate continues…

The irony of Frankie Edgar’s second bout with Gray Maynard is that it took place at UFC 125, a card entitled ‘Resolution‘ by ZUFFA. However, nothing was resolved. It was like UFC 125 never happened. Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard II ended in a draw. One judge scored it definitively for Gray Maynard, the other slightly gave it to Frankie Edgar and the third obviously had a life-long problem with making and handling responsible decisions in his/her life. Technically, if you’re a judge then you must come to a decision — that’s sort of why you’re called a judge. You can’t just throw your hands up and say ‘Oh, I don’t know. That was too crazy for me to effectively do my job.’

Let’s take for example the Casey Anthony trial. What would happen if the judge said, ‘Screw it, I’m ruling this trial a draw?’ That’s a rhetorical question that doesn’t have a set answer, but you can try to invent one. Sort of like this video of people debating who actually won the fight between Gray Maynard vs. Frankie Edgar. Personally, I believed Gray ran away with the fight, especially after scoring a 10-8 in the first round — if not a 10-7 round.
