    Yea, but you know, now that I think of it, if Bendo fights the with the same game plan that Melendez succeeded with, then he might have a chance.

    Another thing one has to think about is if they were to fight in a ring, or in a cage. The cage lets people move around and stay outside more better, while the ring kind of cuts fighters off a some point.

    I think Bendo is going to be the champ soon, and I think his only competition is going to be Melendez. I like Aoki, and there is always the off chance that he could catch Bendo, but I'd rather see Aoki fight Cerrone.

    I think bendo would beat aoki pretty handily

    Bendo wins easy. He's alot more athletic and stronger the Aoki so he decides where the fight goes.

    No matter who Aoki's fighting, I'll always ROOT for the other guy.

    In Bendo's case, I'm quite positive he's head and shoulders above Aoki on all levels sans submission skills and his raw athleticism alone would give Aoki fits.

    I absolutely see this fight being like Melendez/Aoki, except with Bendo being a little more risque.

    I think a huge part of Gil's strategy was also to crouch in front of Aoki, which nullified the upkicks and leglocks that Aoki loves. I think the fight would look much different in Japan, I think Gil is still the favorite though.

    I'm not so sure about Bendo vs Aoki, Bendo does give up submissions a lot, he's just so flexible he always manages to work his way out of them. Aoki is like the only guy at LW who if he grabs something, he breaks it. Not sure if Bendo could avoid subs against Aoki the way he did against Cerrone and Miller.
