Bendo by cruising to an easy UD.

Bendo is better than Melendez everywhere. Hell, I even had Melendez losing for his last match. He just manage to escape a very close decision.

Facing Bendo will have no such nonsense. He is going to easily UD Melendez by being better in every area.

With Bendo 2 biggest threat (Pettis and Frankie) now in Featherweight, I see a lengthy title regin for Bendo. (although Frankie is unlikely to get another shot with Bendo as champ)

Yeah, I had Bendo losing to Frankie.

I think Bendo beats a pretty overrated Melendez, not saying he isn't good & might have some moments in the fight making it somewhat competative but Bendo is just better or as good at everything.

I sure would love Gilbert to scramble that idiots brain even more tho, but I just don't see it happening.

Melendez is a really good fighter but Bendo is too good imo. He should be able to dominated the striking, his kicks are great and his boxing looked very impressive against Diaz and he'll be able to compete in the wrestling. Thomson was able to get TD's on Gil so I can imagine Bendo having success. Late finish or clear UD for Henderson imo.

I higly dislike them both. Don't know why. Every time they fight, i hope they get crushed. Who will save this divsion for me now that Cerrone is getting a 145 belt? Maybe Thompson..

I just don't want to have to hear that we can do all things through christ again, so i'm rooting for El Nino.
