You're talking reasonably. you don't belong as a MMA fan.

this is not a kickboxing match guys!
yeah Bendo landed more, but Gil defended all of Hendo's takedowns, controlled the cage and hurt Hendo with few punches.

this is why most MMA fans don't like Bendo, he had 4 title shots, arguably, he lost 3 of them.

I thought punch stats seemed off. I would have to re-watch it to give a clear score. But my initial thought was Gil did well. He was the one who pushed the pace while stuffing most TDs. He landed harder shots while Bendo landed the kicks.

I felt Gil won the fight, but it could have went either way.

I do like to watch Gil fight much more than I like watching Bendo. It was a good fight though. They will probably meet again.

Bendo: 2, 3
Melendez: 1, 4, 5.

4 was ridiculously close though.

I did'nt see any controversy at all. Their first fight was close but Bendo did win, then Bendo convincingly beat Frankie a second time just to hammer it home. The only thing controversial is that people haven't accepted that Bendo is better than Frankie and a very gifted champion who excels in many areas of the sport.

Had 1 and 2 for Melendez, 3 and 4 for Henderson and I'm undecided on 5. Would have happy with a draw.

I'd like to see Melendez vs Edgar now, with the winner obviously getting another shot at Bendo.
