If Cerrone had actually chosen to follow Diaz down, it could have been a different result.

Bendo will likely blast Diaz's legs as well, but unlike Cerrone, will then promptly assume a dominant top position for GnP until/unless stood up.

Bendo is much, much better than Cerrone.

While I luv watching me some Diaz in the octagon, I have to bet against him here.

Bendo was supposed to kick Edgar all night, he managed it for the first round and despite being successful, Frankies pressure and boxing forced him away from that strategy. Bendo said it himself.

Diaz is the perfect fighter to exploit that better than Edgar did.
