I just got a hunch he's gonna fill that hole in his game. I think he was a bit overconfident in that fight, and I just think he's hungry as hell now to get that strap.
He's just been looking outstanding, and knows he's got a victory over the current champ. He's very confident, and I think he knows that getting put on his back a few too many times is the only way Bendo can beat him, and I'm sure he'll address that in training. Bendo has definitely gotten better but so has Pettis, will be a great 2nd fight between the 2.
