Also, byebye Bendo. Miller won't miss three gifted sub attempts like Mark "What? I have high level BJJ?" Bocek did.


EDIT: I don't see hwo so many of you were impressed with Henderson's performance in his last fight honestly. It looked sub par and Boceck lost that fight more than Henderson won it. Like I said he was gifted 3 submissions and didn't even slightly attempt to go for them (2 heel hooks and an all but finished calf crusher, all he had to do was sink his hips down and pull on Henderson's hips). If he does that with Miller, Jim is going to tear limbs off and mount them. Honestly I've never been terribly impressed with Henderson honestly. He's got a good guillotine and some good wrestling and he's flexible, but that's it.

Right and Millers performance against Boceck was that much better? Miller barley squeaked by Mark, Bendo out classed him for three rounds. I know, MMA math and all, but if you're going to criticise Bendo's performance against Boceck, then it's only fair to bring up Miller's fight against him.

Miller is good.....but when he gets tested by A WRESTLER OF HIS PEDIGREE OR BETTER...HE SEEMS TO TURTLE UP


Bendo by KO

tribute to kanto

I really think Henderson takes this. Miller didn't look so hot against Bocek and Tibau, to me, looked like the visibly better fighter. Honestly if Miller had lost the Bocek and Tibau fights I wouldn't have been surprised.

Miller gets better every fight. Personally I thought he did well in those fights, although they were close, he was always inflicting much more damage. The Tibau fight wasn't really close at all, Tibau didn't do much of anything and was outstruck from the bottom on the ground (I think). Miller dropped Tibau twice (I think), which was impressive against a boxing focused 175+lb Tibau.

The Bocek fight had me worried, but again, Miller was the one who impressed in that fight.

I'm stoked he hasn't gotten his title shot yet, he needs this fight and will impress everyone again.

damn this match will be amazing, this is exellent match making by joe silva...really awesome, i think too many ppl are sleeping on bendo, hes an elite LW and his loss to pettis really doesnt send him too far down the ladder in my eyes since pettis will probably be the champ soon enough

the WEC guys are always having to prove themselves time and time again, im not saying bendo will win but i will say that i wouldnt bet on this fight, i think its 50/50

miller is another elite LW and future champ, this will be exciting as hell, true war, i dont see it ending in the 1st or 2nd round, also this would be a great fight to use five rounds, too bad its not the main event, a guy who is 0-3 is the main event

still, epic fight, potential for FOTY IMO, really high on both these guys and i doubt miller can sub bendo...bendo is probably the toughest SOB to finish at LW

I think it's clear that whoever wins this can easily be considered the #3-4 LW. Maynard/Edgar, Pettis, Miller or Henderson, then Guida, unless of course he beats Pettis.

That's the thing that describes Miller best.

But, at the same time, Henderson is in the same situation.

He is also looking better every time he fights.

To this, add the fact that a title could be very close to the winner...this fight has all the attributes to become a classic.

PS: i'm excited!
