    Nate Diaz's right eye didn't look too good after his fight with Henderson, either.

    I fuckin' love GSP! And aside from Nick Diaz and Dan Hardy (at least Hardy had a winning streak), I haven't had a problem with anyone he's faced. Hell, both of those guys are known for being tough outs.

    I think some people want to see a change in the division like they did with the middleweight division. And they got their wish when Weidman landed that left hook.

    YES!!!!

    This is a concept that seems to go over so many people's heads.
    It's something I've meant to point out on so many occasions but have never articulated it.

    Would you be willing to make it your life's work to point this out every time it happens?! hah

    Mr. Cornute
    Pettis planned the kick as he knew Bendo was circling with his hands down so it was not a fluke but it is not as if it hurt Bendo. The kick caught him off balance and the fight went on. That single moment sealed the round for Pettis otherwise I truly believe Bendo would have won the fight.
    Now on topic, how does Bendo manipulate the rules. He strikes to set up his takedowns and when he gets the takedowns he is very active ground and pounding and looking for submissions. He doesn't fear being subbed as he has proven time and again that just will not occur and further doesn't necessarily fear being knocked out as he has shown he is capable of taking a shot and rolling with it.
    I say again and again I hope Bendo grounds Pettis to a pulp but regardless it should be a good fight.
