Bendo says he "hates cutting to 155".

I'd love to see him at 170. He's the biggest lw imo and needs to move up. Bendo vs. Rory mac would be a dream fight for me!

Not surprising. He is really big for LW. Actually isn't he big enough to where he won't even say how much he cuts? Think I remember him kind of avoiding the question when Joe Rogan asked him after a title fight (Edgar 2 maybe).

I don't know if he is the biggest LW though. Gleison Tibau is freaking huge. Think I remember him saying that he cuts from ~185lbs.

IIRC, he said he cuts from 172 pounds, which I don't really believe. Probably somewhere around 177-178. He did say he would move up to welterweight sometime in the future, when his body can no longer handle the weightcut. Plenty of interesting fights for him at welterweight.

Bendo vs Maia

Would it be like Fitch vs Maia?

Bendo vs Rory

Two athletic beasts going at it.

Can't wait.

I don't think he'd have any success at WW to be honest. His frame is meant for LW.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I think he has more work to do at LW. I want to see him either fight Pettis or Aldo, before a move to WW. Then you've got Gray.

I think he does well at WW. But I don't see him dominating...atleast not at this point.
