I hope the thief is violently put down.

I'd rather root for Anderson than Bendo. TJ please end this reign of terror.

Still room on the card to add some fights. They need to get someone like Wand or Vitor on the card. Maybe lil Nog is ready to go by then. Vitor vs Mousasi? Vitor vs lil Nog?

I bet this card turns out really good.

Finally we may get to see another Bendo finish. I never understand those that opose the chess vice the street brawl but to each their own. I like to watch a good beat down just as much as the next guy but really which fighting style is harder to pull off and requires strategy? To call previous fights robbery and be in anger... Your anger is misplaced, you should be mad at your fighter for not being better.




I look forward to this fight and I am glad my first line got you attention

Another UFC belt coming to Canada, this'll be a huge step into the limelight for TJ and I can't wait until he ends Bendo's reign.

No one hates his fighting style. He actually puts on good fights for the most part.

We hate his ******* attitude and the stupid grin on his face and the way he acts. Dude gets ******* booed out of the arena and does that proposal shit.

Btw 'my fighter' already kicked his face off in the WEC and Ben should be happy Pettis went down to fight Aldo. And the first person to suggest Pettis is ducking him when he's fighting someone whose a MILLION times more dangerous and flat out better is gonna get schooled, quickly.

I would never say ducking as Petis has great potential but I have seen Bendo improve where as initially Petis went stagnant. It really is too bad that he has Aldo down there in his way. I think his brother may be the world changer
