Bendo's actually making a good LW champ

Not pissing anyone off
Not getting a big head
Not getting caught in scandals or saying the wrong things
Exciting fights
Good enough to be champ, but not so dominant that fight outcomes are known

    I agree with all of the aforementioned points. Ben Henderson is great.

    Agreed, and he's not clogging up the division or sqeaking by on controversial decisions! Bendo is a beast!

    Honestly my favorite Division since WEC merger. Bendo is a true champ but so many people in the division that could at the very least take an upset over something as little as him having a bad day and slightly off his game. Pettis, Cerone, Guillard (have to be lucky knock out lol), Lauzon, Stephens, Diaz, Miller, Melendez, and the list goes on of guys talented enough to get the upset. Some of them have better chances then others obviously and I don't see any of them being as dominant as Ben but he is def going to have to bring 110% to every fight to remain champ.

    yep, exactly

    that's why i like the division and the champ so much. WW - LHW are a bit too predictable and have too much politics. LW brings a lot of action and a lot of unpredictable fights...def excited for Pettis vs. Cerrone and Bendo vs. Melendez...best part is, they are free

    I have a ton more respect for Bendo after the Diaz fight. He willingly put himself in bad spots to entertain and try to finish a very durable challenger. There are still a lot of exciting matchups(albeit mostly rematches now) for him as champ, which is why I'm so confused that they made the Melendez fight. Gilbert makes three C. Gracie trained fighters at the moment getting an undeserved title shot. Is Dana sleeping with Cesar and I just missed the headlines?

    Not getting caught in scandals or saying the wrong things - Except when banging on relentlessly about Jesus.
    Exciting fights - Only when Petis is bouncing off a cage and kicking him in the head.
    Good enough to be champ, but not so dominant that fight outcomes are known - Point fighting/ decision fighter. Lost to Frankie F'n Edgar FFS.

    Fixed.

    Quite like him is a fighter, still want to see him lose (I like that in a champ) but wish he'd leave the bible bashing out if it. Jesus has no place in MMA unless it's pronounced HeyZuess and he's on the fight card

    I'll be happy to admit it if I'm proven wrong, but I don't see a single area where Melendez has the advantage. Easy win for Bendo.

    Bendo not dominating as champ? Lmao!

    He has won 14/15 rounds in UFC title fights and the RD he lost is arguable.

    I like him a lot, both as a person and a fighter.

    He seems like a true christian to me so who cares... All things possible through Christ!

    ....he lost the last edgar fight and the 1st fight with edgar was close.

    Only domination Bendo has done as champ is against Nate.

    1st fight with edgar was def not close...i watched that and thought it was complete domination. i still never watched the second edgar fight, but from what i heard it didn't sound like domination. so i stick with what i said....clear champ, but not so dominant that you know the outcome of every fight

    in WW, MW, and LHW it feels like the outcome is already known before the fight happens. let's be honest, we all know GSP beats Diaz and Jones beats Sonnen
  • jdukjduk Posts: 8,284Free
    when does he intend to finish a fight next please? he's doing a fantastic GSP impression right now, 6 in a row

  • jdukjduk Posts: 8,284Free
    actually I just checked and that's one more than GSP's current 5 in a row. boring as ****

    I just can't bring myself to like him yet, because I really, really thought Frankie won their second fight (but lost their first). I'll get there if he keeps defending it and whatnot, but as of right now I'm hoping that Gray Maynard gets himself back to a title shot and takes the title from him. Then, after Edgar's beaten Aldo, he moves back up for Maynard/Edgar IV.
    Favorite Fighters by Division:

    Liz Carmouche
    Tim Elliott
    Eddie Wineland
    Frankie Edgar
    Melvin Guillard/TJ Grant
    Mike Pierce
    Michael Bisping
    Alexander Gustafsson
    Minotauro Nogueira/Matt Mitrione

    I like Bendo too fun fighter to watch. And I always laugh at the awkward non-response he gets from the crowd after he wins.
