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.
Rory has around 30 pounds on Henderson don't kid your self. Rory walks around at close to 200 pounds.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Yeah, Rory is a BIG WW.

I see this being an awesome fight and whilst Im not a big Diaz fan, I cant stand Ben Henderson. So, for that reason I'll be rooting for Nate.

Nate by UD or late sub.

what people forget about nates finish over miller was the fact he was biting his own tongue off while being choked. nate defo dropped him good but i believe his finish was partly linked to bad luck on millers part and his mouth piece/tongue.

i think people underestimate bendo a lot, guy is huge, strong and very well rounded with excellent sub defence.

I dont think people underestimate Bendo, I just think a lot of people dislike him and are hoping he loses.

The small guy who is fighting Freakshow in the semis seems alright.

Yeah that's true, Richie is good. Not sig worthy though If you are interested, Richie is in a gang of surfers called the Bra Boys, there's a documentary narrated by Russell Crowe about them. It's pretty interesting TBH, i'll shoot you a link if you like.

And Rob Whitaker, or whatever his name is, damn that dude is smug.

I don't even consider Benson a champ. To become a champ you need to actually beat the champ. The two fights were close but going to a decision twice does not mean you beat the champ. The first fight he did more damage to Edgar but point wise it looked like he was losing to me for both the fights.

I'm rooting for Nate to win this one. Can't wait to see this fight and the rest of the card.

I believe Ben walks around at between 180-90. No that big of a difference

Jon Jones | Anderson Silva | Urijah Faber | Benson Henderson | Rampage Jackson | Roy Nelson | Shinya Aoki
