Yeah I wouldn't mind a rematch. I actually think it would be pretty cool to have Bendo vs Pettis 2 and Gilbert vs Thompson 26 as a mini tourney.

I thought Gil clearly took 1. Benson 4,5. And 2 & 3 a toss up, I lean towards Gil for both but I see how Benson could have stolen them at the end.

Re watched the fight several time's now and Bendo won 3rd..2nd and 4th 5 th could've went either way, I felt like Bendo's leg kicks did most of the effective damage and that he landed the more significant strikes.

1, 3 and 5 for Melendez. Looks like people have rounds all over the map though.

It wasn't like Gil was completely working Bendo outside of the first. Hell he was basically just punching air in the fifth. Bendo made this fight close by fighting too conservatively in my opinion. He was winning almost every exchange where he decided to stay in the pocket and throw combinations but he didn't want to risk it very often.

Frankie/Bendo II was a robbery this was just a close fight.

I thought Bendo won but I was vastly more impressed with Melendez, guy came to fight and put on the arguably best performance of his career. I am not lining up to see a rematch for that very reason though. While Gil was at his absolute best I am not sure that it was one of the better performances from Bendo and I was honestly surprised the fight was so close but would not expect to see it a second time.

I had 2 and 3 a toss up. Benson had 4 and Gil had 1 and 5. The statistics surprised me (w/Benson hitting a lot more) but i didn't think it really reflected the fight at all. I didn't watch the fight live but if I had, I would have been surprised at Benson getting the win. I suppose I can see why he did, but thought Gil was the winner tbh.

This poll is dumb. Gil did not get robbed but he won the fight. The fight was too close for a robbery.

Super close fights are generally scored in favour of the champ.
