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.
