Pedro Munhoz says he beat Frankie Edgar seriously

LAS VEGAS – Pedro Munhoz is thought to have been wronged against Frankie Edgar at UFC on ESPN 15.

Munhoz (18-5 MMA, 8-5 UFC) suffered a split decision loss to Edgar (24-8-1 MMA, 18-8-1 UFC) in Saturday’s bantamweight headliner, which took place at UFC Apex and aired on ESPN. It was a five-round battle that won ‘Fight of the Night’, but there was only one winner.

And it was not Munhoz who was frustrated about that.

“Without a doubt (I won),” Munhoz told reporters, including MMA Junkie, at the news conference after the fight. ‘I was just at the moment with the doctor getting some stabs, and some of my coaches, Dan Lambert, he showed me just 17 of the media scores. Of 20 of the media scores (on, 17 gave me the fight. That only three gave him. Then I saw in the punching scores that I had the first, third, fourth and fifth rounds. It’s what it is. ”

Munhoz not only points to the media and stats for his reasoning for winning the battle. He was there in all five rounds against the former UFC champion and thinks he did a better job.

“Not even (just) stepping on the feet,” Munhoz said. ‘I hurt him with the jab. I chased him for five rounds. He got a few takedowns, but he could do nothing with the takedowns, and I came right back. I was looking for the finish. ”

Despite Munhoz’s disappointment, the outcome stands. However, he was hesitantly complaining too much, saying he would renovate himself and pick up again from the first losing skid of his career.

“I’m always down to fight anyone,” Munhoz said. “I never chose an opponent. I’m down to fight everyone. That would be good to get the rematch. Now just back home and be crazy for a few days. I am very grateful for what I do and the people around me. ”
