Bendo is one of the best scramblers in the game and is virtually impossible to hold down. GSP's top control is excellent, but I think Bensons scrambling ability would aid him back up to his feet, and on the feet, the fight is a lot closer than people would think. I'd give a slight edge maybe to GSP in the striking department, but it's close.
Bendo is a very good fighter, but GSP has beaten better fighters many times. Bendo would be taken down at will if GSP wanted the fight to take place on the ground.
