Review: 2014-07-06, pretty good fight between Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn: it gets three stars. The black belt in Bjj and former Ufc lightweight champion Frankie Edgar entered this fight with a professional mma record of 16-4-1 (44% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.2 featherweight in the world, he moved down in this division last year but he lost the title shot against #1 Jose Aldo (=Aldo vs Edgar); after that bout he defeated Charles Oliveira (=Edgar vs Oliveira).
His opponent, the Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion (in 2000) and former Ufc lightweight and welterweight champion BJ Penn, has an official record of 16-9-2 (81% finishing rate) but he is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since December 8, 2012 when he was defeated by Rory MacDonald (=Penn vs MacDonald). In both their previous bouts Edgar defeated BJ Penn by unanimous decision (in 2010); this third fight is the main event of “The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale” – UFC Tuf 19.
