Death. Taxes. Frankie Edgar’s nose bleeding in a fight. These things are just going to happen, and there’s nothing that anyone of us can do about it. Of course, the nose bleed this time might not even have anything to do with the fight itself at all. It could be that we were all watching a Frankie Edgar that was displaced in both time and dimension, being transported into an alternate universe where he’s competing in a fight that is only three rounds. He becomes aware of his temporal displacement. His nose bleeds. Things start to get a little too bizarre for Frankie and he realizes that he needs to get out of there.
Towards the end of the fight with about a minute left Edgar activated his character trait, and flew into a mini (no pun intended, seriously) berserker rage. He even threw a flying knee against a guy that is a foot taller than him, luckily enough for Edgar he was able to activate a meter burn to increase his range on the attack. Honestly, it was one of those things where the aesthetics of the move were greater than its actual effect, but hey, who doesn’t love a flying knee? It may not have ended the fight, but it helped to get Edgar the unanimous decision (at this point I’ve hot keyed the phrase) win over Charles Oliveira and snap a 3-fight losing streak moving Edgar, who was once considered a top pound-for-pound fighter, to 2-3 in his last five fights.
