i think the upkick i what changed the last fight and if edgar can avoid being hurt in a severe and similar fashion, i see him taking this.

this fight is too close to call though, 50-50 all the way.

ill root for edgar, like his style, determinaton and the fact he is the smaller man, competing against bigger guys.

Earlier I posted I'm picking Frankie, which still stands but I would like to see him at 145lb. If he loses this fight he should really drop down, if he wins I think he'll run into the problem that is Nate Diaz and either lose the belt again or end up in another rematch.

I think if Frankie gets anything other than a win here, he should go down. I'm not a fan of fighters changing weight, but the LW's are getting bigger and losing to Bendo twice in a row would be a huge setback.

If those were the death kicks you are presenting them as then all of Frankie's ribs would have been broken and he would have drowned to death in his own blood with the number of them he took. How many guys has Bendo dropped with body kicks? Again, confirmation bias not a legitimate breakdown.
You're exaggerating every thing I'm saying. I didn't say Bendo has some kicks from hell, but quite clearly, they do pack a lot of power, and in the first fight, Bendo's heavy kicks were more significant than Frankies punches.

It's very rare to see body kicks drop fighters, even with berserker's like Shogun or kickers like Machida. You don't see their body kicks dropping their opponents, but they clearly pack a lot of power and serve a purpose.

Watch the fight again and just listen to the thud of Bendos body kicks slamming into Frankies body. He did good damage with them, and then there was the up kick that shattered Frankies nose.

No way in hell Bendo gets finished by Edgar.
I am surprised by the number of people thinking Edgar will finish Henderson.

This fight is a toss-up.

Edgar should have the advantage standing, because of his speed, but Henderson is no slouch. Even though Bendo is bigger and stronger, i see Edgar having a slight advantage when it comes to takedowns, because he sets them up much better, thanks to his striking...his footwork mostly,

On the ground though, i think Henderson has the edge. He is very dangerous from the bottom, but if he gets on top of Frankie i really think he can hurt him...badly.

I am picking Henderson here, just like in the first fight. I thought he would get the sub in the first fight and it looked like it, when he had that tight guillotine, but Edgar is a robot...

Another thing, both guys seem to do better in the rematches: Edgar vs Penn and Maynard.
Henderson vs Cerrone.

A sign that they learn a lot from a first fight and make the right adjustements after that.

It's gonna be interesting to see who adjusts better this time.

I have Henderson winning this, before the 5th round.

i don't think either will get a finish in this fight, i just think edgar has a better chance because he hits harder.. and both of their wrestling and sub defense are too good to realistically expect either one to finish on the ground by TKO or sub..

this should be a very different fight, because both will make intelligent adjustments but it will be just as close as the last one.

Doubt Bendo does much if he gets on top. He is a good grappler, but I see Frankie forcing a scramble and he is definitely faster than Bendo. He will get back to his feet of Bendo takes him down.
