Penn came out to the center eager to exchange. He was standing tall, far more upright than normal. Edgar worked his usual combinations, jumping in and out.
Color commentator Kenny Florian wondered if BJ wasn't hoping Frankie would shoot in o him for a takedown. He did just that and Penn immediately went to butterfly guard. Edgar stood up and threw kicks at the Hawaiian's legs.
When he came back down, it was right back to butterfly guard. Edgar couldn't find any openings on top, so he stood back up and kicked at his opponent's legs again.
Then he came back down and BJ tried to set up for a submission.
Edgar got back up and Penn was content to kick at his legs from his back. Finally, with one minute left in the round, referee Herb Dean called for the stand up.
Frankie circled while "The Prodigy" came forward, pawing a jab. Edgar came right through it with a combination. Then another.
That was clearly Edgar's round.
