How is maynard a bad guy? Dude is one of the most humble guys in the LW div.
Other than that I somewhat agree. Bendo seems to lack the charisma in his personality and the flair in his fighting style to make a top draw.
Then again, the same can be said for any top LW not named BJ penn. You really think Edgar, Maynard or Melendez would be top draws? Maybe eddie alvarez would, but he's unlikely to become champ.
