Makes sense for Gil to make this call out.
Bendo beat his boy, Nate. He wants to avenge that loss.
He needs a marketable fight, and Bendo is more of that than Pat Healy.
But I see Bendo beating Gil quite easily. Bendo fought a furious pace in every one of his matches. He outworked cardio machines like Guida, Jim Miller, Frankie Edgar (1st match), and Nate Diaz. He is incredibly hard to finish. His ability to incorporate new techniques in every one of his fights, shows he will always be hard to figure out.
Gill will tire out by the 4th round and I dont see him adjusting to whatever Bendo will mix things up with.
