This could end up being the best fight nobody is talking about. Very hard to decide but i'll take Bocek by UD.

Should be an awesome fight. Is it the first fight on the ppv?

My prediction is that Bendo avoids the takedown and beats Bocek standing. Ben is very slippery on the ground as well, so I don't think Bocek will be able to finish it if it does go to the ground.

Bocek by submission. Bendo has shown he can easily be caught into a submission attempt and I don't think Bocek will let him escape. If Bendo relies on his flexibility to escape in this fight he's gonna get choked out.

Bendo is unsubmittable.

Bocek may be a bit better when it comes to BJJ, but both fighters are incredible when it comes to the submission game.

I see Henderson as the overall better fighter though: more crafty, more athletic, more dynamic, more durable and he has the better stand-up.

I have a feeling this will turn into a ground war.

Henderson: 12 wins - 8 by submission.
Bocek: 9 wins - 7 by submission.

It depends so much on who gets the TD first or who gets top control. I don't see either of these guys subbing the other one from the bottom.

It's a super exciting fight. This or MacDonald vs Diaz are the favorites for FOTN imo.

I'm goin with Henderson by UD.

BELIEVE!

Tough, tough fight to call imo. Especially since we've seen the WEC 55'ers do so well as of late.

It's a toss up but I'm going with Bocek via decision although I'd like to see a submission pulled off.

Oh yeah, the Miller vs. Bocek fight is a good one to look at. I thought Bocek won that one
