Man I hope you are right. I would love it so much if Nate can beat him. And he has been looking like a beast lately so who knows. I just think Bendo as much as I can't stand the guy, is a bit too well-rounded. But we will see, I will be rooting hard for Nate.

Bendo's key would be to use a Randy Couture style gameplan of avoiding both striking and groundgame, pressing Nate up against the cage. Hopefully Nate is still able to land alot of strikes and break Bendo.
I could however see it go something like Couture vs Gonzaga, avoiding the ground and subs & still being able to grapple alot standing.
Nate has been wrecking lately tho, so who knows he might have some tricks for that kind of fight as well, like pulling guard or who knows. Like u said he did get Miller & I would never have thought that either. Bendo is a better version of Miller tho.
