    Only message I've gotten from Bendo is that our God is an awesome God, la laa lalala la la...

    How about Cerrone in their first fight? I still think Cerrone won that first fight.

    I was impressed by Bendo last night, he put some nice words out too, good on him. I had picked Diaz to win but he sure got his ass kicked. Disappointed they didn't interview Diaz right after.

    Everyone's shitting on Diaz now, but the guy totally dominated Jim Miller and Donald Cerrone. I think he just had a really bad fight, while Bendo had a really good fight. I definitely want to see Bendo fight again soon against a top guy like Maynard or Pettis.

    I'm hoping they do something along the lines of Pettis/Cerrone winner gets the title shot, then next in line maybe Dos Anjos/Maynard. Everyone else seems to have lost recently.

    Last night was definitely a bad night for Diaz. One issue I have both Diaz brothers is they're unwilling to adapt or change their gameplan midfight when their original one doesn't work.

    Not taking nothing from Bendo, but all athletes have a bad night too, plus Bendo had a great night at the same time.

    Bendo has a masterful performance and people bitch about it? Id love to see him derail the Aldo hype train but I think Frankie is going to do it for us.

    I've been following bendo for along time and that is the biggest I've seen him and his cardio seemed endless. Funny how that same gameplan he employed would work perfectly against Penn.

    I was very impressed with Bendo's performance last night... There are guys at LW that can beat Nate, but not like Ben did...

    He landed some very powerful leg kicks, dropped him twice and manhandled him in the clinch...

    I could see someone like Edgar pulling out a UD against Diaz(even though Nate would be a tougher stylistic matchup for him, than Diaz was for Ben) but it certainly would not look that way... Frankie cannot generate that type of power in his kicks or takedowns... It would have been another stick and move gameplan mixed in with a few surprise takedowns, doing minimal damage.


    I like Ben a lot... Always brings it and his decision wins are usually exciting fights... He may not be the finisher that Anderson, Jones, Aldo, JDS are but is an exciting fighter.... certainly more so than Edgar.

    Nothing against Nate or Nick because they have really solid skills and really excel in a couple areas but their ability to vary their gameplan is pretty limited. They have great boxing which sometimes allows them to transition into subs and they don't have a lot more then that. If the boxing fails and the opponent has good sub defense they are in trouble.

    If anyone wonders what Nick Diaz vs GSP would look like, just pop in the Henderson vs Nate tape.

    I think if anything this fight and the Condit fight might make Nick rethink his usual approach.

    Are athletes really self-centered enough to think God cares about a MMA fight when he doesn't give two shits about kids dying of white phosphorus poisoning?
