I'm thinking Benson could still go another 3 rounds with brother Nick and still come out with an 80-72 decision.

Benson chewed him up.

With so much octagon time to use as a reference. I don't think I've ever been able to make such an accurate prediction of how exactly a fight was going to go.

Neither fighter is any different then the last time we've seen them...
My God, get off your high horse. Most people gave Henderson's wrestling and strength the nod, especially as we've seen Nate dummied by lesser wrestlers in the past. But anyone can win a fight on any given night and people root for their favourites. Your 'I can't believe people actually thought ______ would win' schtick is tired.

The 30-19 from forum goers doesn't really mean much, but I think I'll send in a few emails to some certain MMA writers and rib em a bit about the Diaz pick.

Having short term memory when it comes to fighters is a trait of casual fans...not guys who do this thing for a living.

For me this fight just makes me think how ******* awesome Frankie Edgar really is. To IMO have beaten Bendo when he's even smaller than Diaz is insane. Great fight from Bendo tonight though, Diaz's JJ game was totally shut down.

Great showing by Bendo, no idea where it leaves Nate though. Where does he go from here? I doubt he can make FW, he was dominated so a title shot anywhere in the near future is inconceivable especially in such a stacked division. Tough road back for Nate.

Hope Nate Diaz come back soon... to the hole he crawled from. Where's the tough face now, boy?
Since is too late to get humble, get this beating instead.
