UFC 150 is over and once again controversy is running wild… Did Frankie win or Benson, well regardless what you think… The judges scored it 46-49 for Frankie, 48-47 and 48-47 for Benson, so he is able to retain his belt. After the fight it was confirmed that Benson will fight Nate Diaz for the belt next. Dana White also confirmed that IF Frankie did go down to 145 he would not get a immediate title fight and he would have to someone before the belt, which blew twitter up calling for Korean Zombie v Frankie Edgar, but it is very doubtful Frankie will drop.
The card drew 15,008 for just over a half million for an average of just over 43 dollars a ticket. The UFC gave 60,000 dollar bonuses to Lightweights Donald Cerrone and Melvin Guillard fight of the night Cerrone also got Knockout of the night, while Featherweight Dennis Bermudez pulled of submission of the night.
