Diaz got this. Bendo's kicking strategy was catching Edgar, shame he could only execute the gameplan for one round before abandoning it due to Frankie's pressure.

Diaz brings more pressure and the ability to strike from further away, I can't see Bendo outsmarting or hurting him on the feet. Unfortunately Bendo is striking more and more, forgetting what got him to where he is - being unpredictable and taking the fight seamlessly from feet to ground/vice versa. Similar to Jon Jones.

I think if there is a takedown attempt in this fight, it'll likely be initiated by Bendo due to getting beat on the feet. If he takes Diaz down in a panic or when he's rocked, chances are he'll be submitted.

Bendo is a tough fight for any LW but I think Diaz is a very tough fight for him.
