Showtime has improved a lot, I think he will beat Hendo with more ease this time if they fight. It would certainly be a great fight regardless, I just hope Gilbert doesnt spoil it!

Not sure. Pettis is one hell of an athlete, AND a fighter. Smooth is literally more 'smooth', but a re-match is ....

And so the reign of Benson comes to an end.

Pettis is going to choke Bendo out this time around.

One fight too late imo, I think Gilbert will have the title when Pettis comes knocking.

The next two fights in this division are going to be damn entertaining.

Things got far more exciting since Frankie lost...

Even Frankie vs Also beats Frankie vs anyone else at light weight.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

If Pettis shores up his wrestling, upgrades his BJJ, and stays injury free he will be one damn marketable fighter once he claims the belt. This is what GSP was when he first started. For that time the superman punch, spinning side kick was fairly rare and new. Pettis has upped the ante along with Anderson of course.

Pettis represents the new breed of MMA fighters. Highly proficient in most martial arts utilizing unorthodox maneuvers with uncanny success!

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

It was stupid to give Melendez the premature shot. I assume Pettis went unscathed last night and Pettis/Bendo makes so much sense. Now Pettis will have to wait like nine months (give or take). Meanwhile Melendez is unknown to a lot of UFC fans, so having him win a gimme fight and then fight Pettis/Bendo winner would have likely been a smarter route.

Pettis gained himself a new fan after that KO of Cerrone (haven't seen many of his previous fights).

Would love to see him beat Bendo, but if Clay Guida could outwrestle Pettis then I don't see why Ben can't
