Bendo battered Frankie in the first fight and will probably batter him and eventually sub him in this fight.

Getting brutally kicked to the body and legs throughout the entire fight and getting your nose shattered while you throw soft 1-2 combinations doesn't warrant a rematch, but here we have it.

**** him up Bendo.

Looking forward to this rematch big time. I expect another close fight between these two. I'm picking Edgar to win a hard fought decision. If that is the case I wouldn't be surprised to see a trilogy between these two. If Hendersen wins look for Edgar to drop down to featherweight. It's a win/win situation IMO

I expect Edgar to have a very good chance in this fight, but I also expect Ben to come in super prepared, totally hyped and a lot more dynamic than he was the first time.
I think Ben will finish Edgar this time and remove all doubt.

But what do you think of this? A lot of the MMA media is saying if Frankie wins a decision, there should be another automatic rematch for a rubber match trilogy.

Do you guys agree with that?

Looking forward to this fight and expect Frankie to make a statement. Edgar was clearly the better fighter till Bendo landed that nasty up kick that changed the tide and turned it into a competitive fight. I don't see Bendo landing something like that again. I don't want to call it luck but it was a one in a million shot. The other thing is that Edgar has had two sets of rematches before this and both times he came out looking much better and put the exclamation point on his wins. Expect it again because don't forget how defiantly Edgar was denying those td attempts not just sprawling but practically tossing Bendo to the ground.

Dana says things like this frequently. Dana's word doesn't mean much really. Until it's signed on the dotted line, take all of Dana's "promises" with a grain of salt.

The thing is though they can market Nate, he's got a fan friendly style and his give no ****s attitude will appeal to a lot of people.

The thing with Diaz' attitude is it works both for and against him. He's an easy sell to hardcore fight fans, but his behaviour might not sit well with sponsors and new fans :-\ anyway bendo remains champ :-P

I don't think it'd be a big deal, Chael spent two years talking shit about Anderson and he got sponsorships. Nate's a lot more level headed and much, much more likeable than Nick too and Nick's got sponsors.

As for new fans, well that works one of two ways, people get behind him or people wanna see him take an ass whipping, either way people will tune in.

I guess you're right, but remember that Chael's popularity grew tenfold after his first fight with Silva. He had dominated the guy he was talking smack about :-)
