    And this is a fight Pettis wont take until after his title shot..No way him or anyone around him would risk it, Guida controlled a fight with Pettis it would be a 15 minute waste of life to watch Ole Lay N Pray Gray smother Pettis to another boring as fuck decision.

    In my opinion Pettis is full of talent and has all of the potential in the world to be that guy in the division, He just has to put it together and keep it together. He had one hiccup with Guida were he got smothered and humped to a UD loss. But I think he's growing and really learned with that. Putting someone like Askren in your camp and busting your ass trying to get away from him may show much improvement. Anyway if I was him I'd wait for the shot if there's a clear winner in the Melendez/Hendo fight, but if there isn't and there's an automatic rematch or some shit he needs to fight, and win drastically.

    Maynard decisions Pettis if he can't make nothing happen before Maynard grabs him. I also think Maynard matches up very well with Bendo.

    I agree.

    He did hold Henderson to only 3 of 10 takedowns in their fight, though, and reversed Henderson twice, and had a couple takedowns of his own, and that's in a 5 round fight against someone with way better cardio and a more well rounded game than a Gray Maynard...but then there's that Guida fight. 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.

    This'll be an instance of "size matters".

    Maynard is a HUGE LW and now that he's training out of AKA, he'll be working with cardio-centric minded grapplers, who'll have him wired to cut a violently grinding and FAST style. On the flipside, Pettis is quite small at LW and I think he gets put on his back and pressured for fifteen minutes, given zero room to breath and do what he does on his feet. I don't see Pettis keeping it on the feet long enough to be explosive and I think Gray implements his game to a tee and just bullies Pettis into dust.

    ^IDK man, Pettis is training with Askren now. It wouldn't surprise me if he really ends up learning from that Guida "loss". Especially if we are talking about a 5 round fight, because Gray has seemed to fate late in all of his recent fights imo, whereas I haven't really seen Pettis get tired. He even looked fresher than Bendo at the end of their fight.

    Look at how much Frankie improved his wrestling after his 1st loss to Maynard.
