Henderson is going to punish Edgar. Edgar was lucky last time, the mat was reportedly very slippery and you could see Bendo slip a few times, something he never does.


In the rematch Edgar won't get a single TD IMO and will be stopped via gross-looking cuts.


Diaz is riding an win streak due to perfect opponent selection. Does anyone here think he'd actually beat someone like Guida?

You act like Jim Miller doesn't have a grinding ground game with some decent take downs. Other than Benson, Miller has taken everyone down and either submitted them or completely broke their will.

Miller was supposed to be the wrestler to stop Nate Diaz. Had Diaz fought and beat Guida this weekend, we'd be saying, "Do we really think Diaz could beat a wrestler like Miller?"

I don't know of one fighter that was at the top of the division that he took down. Miller isn't a great wrestler, he's just one of those mediocre wrestlers that get matched against guys with crappy tdd. Name one guy with good wrestling that miller has beat.

Basically this. Millers wrestling is not that good. He has lost to all of the great wrestlers he fought in Gray Maynard, Frankie Edar, and Ben Henderson. Thats not anything to be ashamed of. If those three want to take Nate down then Nate is going down.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

Bendo vs Diaz would be a 5 round WAR that i would love to see! Bendo is going to easily beat Edgar again and then hopefully well get to see Diaz. I'd still pick Bendo to win by a slight margin though.

I'll take sig bets because I have no doubt Nate has what it takes to beat either Frankie or Bendo.

Me neither, Diaz has looked nothing short of spectacular during his current win streak. By the guys he's fought and the way he's beaten them, I think he's highly prepared for the problems Bendo and Edgar present.

Gomi is 2-3 with three sub losses. Cerrone was a good win but not a stylistically relevant win.
