I think Bendo has earned his title. He convincingly won the first fight with Edgar to me, and although I edged the second to Frankie, I knew that if Bendo got the decision it wouldn't be something to complain about.
There should be no comparrison however. Both guys seem to have very different personalities and fighting styles. Jon Jones is very unpredictable and naturally talented, while I feel that Bendo is very technical and knows every move that he's attempting. Bones is very arrogant, yet respectful at the same time, while I only see confidence and realism from Bendo (although granted I only really watch the pre-fight promos). Both are very different people and should be recognized as such.
Thanks to Ape for the sig.
