Obviously the UFC 150 main event title bout between Frankie Edgar and Ben Henderson was close, and the decision was very debatable. Henderson picked up a split decision and kept his title, but many (including myself) felt that Edgar did enough to take three rounds, possibly four. FightMetric, the official stats provider for the UFC, put out their report on the fight and they have it scored as a 48-48 draw.

According to the report, they gave Henderson the first and third rounds, Edgar the second and fifth, and scored the fourth 10-10. They credited Edgar with 70 total strikes overall while they had Henderson landing 65. Significant strikes was 66-62 Edgar overall. Edgar was credited with two takedowns out of six attempts, Henderson went 0 for 1. Edgar was also given two submission attempts (both guillotines), while Henderson got credit for one.

What does this mean? Absolutely nothing, really. The fight was super close and a small stats advantage one way or the other isn't solid evidence that one man clearly won. But it's interesting to see the real numbers at least.
