If you thought the fans at home and in attendance tonight at the Pepsi Center in Denver for UFC 150 thought the judging in the main event was controversial, they're not alone. It turns out many - if not most - of the fighters Tweeting tonight also believed former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar deserved the nod from the judges. There are some Ben Henderson believers out there, to be sure. But there's no denying the majority of those vocal on Twitter thought something went wrong when it came to giving the right fighter the decision.
Let's see what the pros had to say about the Ben Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar rematch as well as their take on the judges' decision.

I don't think Edgar/Henderson was robbery but I do think Edgar should have got the win. Both guys fought their asses off. Congrats to Bendo!— Ed Soares (@edblackhouse) August 12, 2012

They should be ashamed that's pure ignorance from two incompetents seating in a chair who never sweat a day in a ring— Renzo_Gracie_BJJ (@RenzoGracieBJJ) August 12, 2012

The truth is simple.. The crowd boo the decision, you can fool a few people who don't know what's going on.. But not the fans. They KNOW— Renzo_Gracie_BJJ (@RenzoGracieBJJ) August 12, 2012

TEAM NO TEAM
We need to have a point system in Mma , how can one judge have it 49-46 Edgar & others 48-47 Henderson. It makes no sense— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunsonMMA) August 12, 2012
Henderson over Edgar in a split decision! What a tough 5 rounds either way.— JALEN ROSE (@JalenRose) August 12, 2012
