The hatred of Bendo because of his religion is hilarious. Was nothing but class but in his interview with Joe afterwards.

because Aldo uses leg kicks over body kicks. Pettis probably does throw strong kicks, but the fact that you say its 10 times more powerful then make that comparison is silly

Showing class after the hype of a fight or off of twitter is useless....... unless you are Connor Mcgregor then the trash talking and taunting is badass.

Bendo puts his beliefs out there for us to react to. If you announce your religion every chance you get you will be met with many skeptics and supporters. I'm sure Jesus and God do not care whether or not Bendo publicly thanks them for their clearly direct contribution to his livelihood.

Thank you for making my point for me.

I thought your point was that you find people reacting to his religious beliefs funny?

Expected was an eventual W, not expected was the speed of it. They had to rerun the prelim/undercards to fill up the time slots. After rewatching highlights of their first encounter I expected another five rounder due to how close it was.

Bendo is a good dude and a class act. He had his time and made his mark. Funny how he gave his toothpick to his cornerman this time.

As long as Pettis is emotionally well, injury free, and healthy he's going to usher in a new era of what MMA is in the 2010+.

Only three fighters have truly wowed me since I started watching. With the exception of Royce of course, it was Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort in 1996, Anderson "The Spider" Silva in 2006, and now Anthony "Showtime" Pettis in 2013. Each showed an all around game implementing some explosive and dynamic striking that hasn't been seen in their respective era.

Most impressive.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Very impressed by both fighters.

To the people bitching about religion... do you realize you're more ******* annoying than the people thanking God for their abilities?

Good lord. Benson makes one Jesus comment and 10 people won't stop endlessly bitching via the internet. Must make you feel more confident about your beliefs than Benson..... right?

The irony is astounding.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
