I'm going to go against the grain and say Henderson by a pretty convincing decision. I think Pettis is overrated and hasn't improved nearly as much as Henderson has since the WEC merger. Henderson has been the UFC's most active champion for a while and will no doubt be very motivated to avenge his loss.

Benson via decision or Pettis via some kind of flying kick out of nowhere.

I can get behind that, Benson stealing some rounds and taking a split is what I expect.

If Benson gets caught by literally anything where Pettis jumps off the cage he'll end up becoming the punch line of so many jokes.

It's hard for me to tell how these guys actually measure up now. Pettis has looked a lot more impressive but he hasn't been fighting close to the same quality of fighters as Bendo.

I'm leaning towards Pettis being more improved and getting the win again. I just can't be sure of that until I see him against elite competition.

I expect to see a lot of wrestling out of Bendo. I think he wins if he makes it a dirty fight and constantly puts Pettis against the cage and on his back.

Benson via Unanimous Decision
He will smother Pettis for 5 rounds and avoid the strikes.

First time ever that i'll be cheering for Bendo. I don't see him losing either, he's a more complete fighter and is used to 5 round fights.

Bendo looked leaner to me than usual, not in a bad way but I don't think he can strike with Pettis if that's his plan

I dont think Bendo will be able to smother Pettis, this is not the same Pettis that fought Guida.. I would actually give Pettis the advantage in the clinch, and i think his TDD is good enough to not go down every every round.. Plus he knows how fights are scored and will be quick to get back to his feet.

I expect a close decision for pettis, or brutal KO ending Bendo's miserable reign as champ...

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

I think Bendo has improved more than Pettis since the last time they faced. Bendo has easily faced the more difficult competition. I think Bendo wins another decision, but not split/controversial like his prior ones.
