    Bendo will have 15 fights under his belt before Pettis defends once at this rate.

    I'm gonna add to that by saying Bendo faces Aldo at 155 lb before Pettis does, even if he's not the champ, while Pettis is gonna be clamoring for a fight versus Aldo, yet find a reason to pull out.

    Seems like they want to build Bendo's momentum back up.

    I think Bendo takes this fight pretty handily and being that he is not prone to injuries, I think he comes back and fights again before year's end.

    I'm also thinking Bendo wants to keep fighting for financial reasons. He was getting $100k/$100k as champ, and in his last fight he got $45k/$45k. That's a big drop in pay and I'm assuming the more he thinks he fights, the higher his pay increase per fight.
