Yeah think Bendon takes another 5 round decision. I like the fight though.

Bendon will decision a lot of people IMO. The only guy I think that will be able to stop him now that Frankie is gone is Maynard. Alvarez might KO him though (I don't rate Alvarez as no.1 but he has legit KO power and probably matches up better with Bendon than anyone else aside from the Bully).

I don't get the Maynard love at the moment really. I also think Bendo is very beatable and when Showtime destroys Cowboy he should put up a great fight against the winner of Bendo-Gil. I don't see any LW at the moment holding the belt for very long. Too much talent at the top. Even a guy like Rafael Dos Anjos is extremely tough and well rounded. No easy fight in the top 15 of the LW divison. But I also beleive there are 2 guys still with Bellator that could compete with any UFC LW at the moment. So much talent in that division at the top.

Bellator has good guys all throughout the lighter weight classes, they are really quite a good organisation. It's the majority of their HWs that make me want to rip my eyes out of their sockets.

Maynard matches up well cos he can probably put Bendo on his back and his striking was already good but training with Pederneiras, Aldo and Barao at Nova Unaio will have improved him tenfold.

Cause Maynard is a great wrestler and really solid boxer. He is the prototype for a successful mma fighter and is only not champ because he. Couldn't keep up with Edgar's speed. Should have the skills to keep with or beat anyone in the division and personally i see him as the biggest threat to Bendo

Solid boxer? I have to disagree. He packs some decent power but Nate Diaz boxed his ears off(a fight I thought Nate won). I think just like with Bendo there are plenty of top guys right now that would give Maynard fits. For one Nate Diaz is technically 1-1 against him with a split decision and got tapped out on TUF. That's always going to be a tough fight for Gray. I think Jim Miller in a rematch would be a heck of a fight as well. I think Pettis' speed and better standup could give Gray fits since I don't see Gray being able to finish Pettis. I think Michael Chandler is a matchup nightmare for Gray but that obviously won't happen anytime soon.

Nate V Maynard 1&2 were years ago, both fighters have improved so much it's ridiculous. I think Maynard is a notch above Jim Miller. If Gray wanted to he could beat Pettis the way he did Florian. Chandler is an interesting one, I think he's top 5.

Pettis come on people he shouldn't even be in contention right now and the rematch if it happens won't be competitive. Same with Cerrrone guys are good fighter but not title material.

Melendez got exposed in the Thompson fight. Bendo should dominate from bell to bell.
