Compustrike’s numbers on Penn / Edgar

On Sunday, the smoking gun on who really won the Penn / Edgar fight was Fightmetric, which gave BJ the numerical advantage on striking and also gave him a much higher ‘Fightmetric score’. I’d explain how that thing is figured out but I’d rather just point you towards the equation because it’s kinda crazy.

But meanwhile, Compustrike (who’s site was down for half the day Sunday while Fightmetric’s score was sweeping the webs) has stats that side with Edgar, giving him the statistical striking advantage overall and in the final two rounds, with round three being a virtual tie. With robot judges, we might have seen a draw. But then again, stupid inferior robots don’t take into account aggression and octagon control.
