Maia is the new WW beast.

I think Bendo is kinda screwed. He is perfect for LW now but as he gets older it will be harder and harder to make the cut. The Ww's are probably too big, though.

I can't see Bendo being great at WW. As long as he's the LW champion, there's no reason to move.

Bendo is one guy that I have always looked at as having a hard time making weight. He is just so freaking skinny and has to be in amazing shape just to cut weight down to 155.

Why would he have trouble at WW?

The guy is too big for LW, when he gets in there he has a clear size advantage over everyone. He made Nate look like a rag doll. His body is a WW body he is the same size as those guys. One of this legs is like double the size of most of those WW's

He claims to walk around at 170lbs. I'm sure if he moved to WW he would bulk up a bit, but he would be among the smallest WW's. Look at guys like Condit, Hendricks, GSP, Alves, Rory, Ellenberger, Marquardt etc. Most of these guys walk around at 200 lbs or more. I hope Ben stays at LW where he will always have a size and strength advantage. He is by no means slow at LW and his cardio is amazing. Ben, stay at LW please!
