The referee called an end to the fight, but instead of cheers for the victor there was an eerie silence hanging over the crowd. No one wanted to be the first to applaud. Frankie Edgar did not celebrate by running around the cage or climbing to the top and pointing furiously into the audience. Instead he held his arms up for only a second and walked over to check on his defeated opponent. A legend of the sport had just fallen and the way he had fallen is what turned the crowd so solemn.
B.J. Penn returned to the UFC on July 6th for the rubber match against the first Lightweight to beat him in 8 years, Frankie Edgar. As the 10-1 underdog Penn was never expected to come close to winning, but no one expected the beat down that would ensue. Edgar handily beat Penn through two rounds and finished him in the third by raining elbows down on Penn’s head.

It’s been well over a year since welterweight prospect Joseph Elegele’s last match.
Facing off with Javier Molina inside of The Hangar in Costa Mesa, Calif. in March of 2013, Elegele dropped a competitive unanimous decision after eight rounds of action.
Scores reading 78-72 and 77-75 twice may have told the tale of a good scrap, but the tallies did little to showcase just how disappointing of an evening that was for Elegele.
The following months have certainly been a test of the Melbourne, Fl. native’s resolve and Elegele admits that sometimes his belief has wavered.
