Bendo got this, i dont think Gil is ready for this title shot...

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Agree with this. I think Bendo gets a pretty decisive 49-46type decision. But Melendez will be in there. But I think Bendo is just more a athlete with better scrambles and wrestling.

Never really been sold on Melendez, though I'll be rooting for him.
I think Henderson takes a pretty clear cut decision.

Melendez is going to get exposed. To be fair, I don't blame him, he was given the competition they had available, but the reality is it just doesn't match up.

Melendez by TKO.

Frankie should still be champ.
