I want a Pettis highlight reel KO victory, but expect a 5 round decision for Bendo.

Bendo is a good rep for the sport, but he's a less well rounded version of GSP. Solid, but not spectacular.

I hate to say that I'll be cheering for Bendo. I think he is the more well rounded fighter, he has a better BJJ game, better wrestling, better top control, better cardio, the better hands. I think Pettis has more stopping power, clearly the better kicks. Bendo has improved more than Pettis since their last fight.

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

Whatever the out come of the fight. I hope Benson gets hit with the same kick as the first fight. Just to see the reactions!

Tough call but I'm leaning towards the UFC crowning a new LW champion tonight.

Hoping for a Bendo win for several reasons: I like Bendo as a champ, he's a bit cocky and grinds fights out more entertainingly than GSP does. Also Pettis is a very exciting fighter as we all know, and the first fight with Bendo was amazing - a Bendo win here could ensure us a third fight somewhere down the line.

All that being said, I'm just excited for the fight, won't be too upset no matter what happens

I'm just in shock that I'll actually be rooting for Henderson for the first time ever, at least that I can remember.

Overall just hoping for an excellent fight but If I had to choose who I want to win it would be Pettis, simply because I'm always down for a change in the division.
