Really surprised so many people are thinking Nate is not only gonna take it but gonna take it however he wants. Did no one watch Bendo vs Edgar fights? Bendo beat him twice (not that I agree in the decisions). Let me repeat that, he beat the BEST LW in the world twice! Do you guys think Nate is anywhere near the skill level that Edgar is?

I have Edgar beating everyone in the LW category except maybe Bendo.

I can't see Diaz finishing Henderson, but I can't see Henderson grinding down Diaz for 25 minutes either.
What a mindf*ck that must be.

Bendo has to use his wrestling and leg kicks, I can see Nate opening him up for a submission with his boxing late on though. I was so impressed by Diaz's win over Miller, I thought Jim was impossible to finish. Apparently not.

Bendo was meant to kick a lot in his last fight, he did it quite well for the first round then abandoned it without much pressure from Frankie... and Nate's stand up is more imposing than Frankie's.

I can see him starting with a similar plan, but can't see him sticking to it.

Nate has better boxing than frankie, sure. But his mma stand up is not a frankies level. I absolutely HATE the way frankie fights, but his stand up is very good. The way he moves in and out and mixes in his wrestling is the best at LW for sure. He IS acceptable to a big punch.

That's where I see bendo taking this. I think bendo is going to surprise everyone by standing with nate but mixing in his wrestling. Nate will have success standing but if you don't think bendo can do to nate what rory did, you are kidding yourself. Who has the better grappling between rory and bendo, i know not. What I know is bendo's grappling is elite and the size difference between him and rory isnt at all what you would think. Bendo is a hugeeeeeeeeee LW. HUGE!!! Nates best chance is submitting bendo.. and yeah, thats going to be a hard task.

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier

Edge usually goes to the better wrestler, even more so that Nate doesn't really have knockout power.

He needs a sub to win. Bendo just needs to keep being gumby.

I really think Nate will get this via some sort of front choke in the 3rd round.

I am so excited for this fight, Nate with the belt will be my new avatar, ClydeBankBlitz can have the Nunchuk Nick gif
