Meh, I didn't think it was that controversial. Could've gone either way in my eyes.

I dont get the uproar though, it was a very very close fight & wouldn't rank in the top 5 worst decisions of this year.
I agree with you both. It was a very close fight, and difficult fight to score. I'm a bit of a Benson fan too, and I also thought Edgar may have had it, but I wasn't shocked when they said "STILL". A few overreactions in this thread for sure.
I'm kind of glad with the outcome though... the last thing I wanted to see was another Edgar trilogy.
That 5th round was so frustrating to watch. I appreciate that both guys are exhausted, but neither one of them were driving the action to make a statement and clearly take the round - especially Henderson. I expected more takedown attempts from Henderson too.
