    Two of the coolest guys in the UFC going down, whoever wins truly deserves it!

    Bendo has a good chance to win this but I don’t think I will ever bet against someone who beats BJ Penn twice and then Maynard twice.

    Either way, I doubt this is the last time we see these two dudes going at it!

    Im rooting for Bendo Henderson as well because he has bigger and stronger legs than frankie.
    He probably squats a lot.

    However, he will never be the best fighter of the planet as long as EMELIANENKO FEDOR is alive

    Again, Frankie Edgar is the underdog. Again, he will shock the world.

    M1_Global_Gangsta: “Yes, today is the special day for my brother and his beautiful bride. Thank you for asking me to be the best man. I just wanted to say that I feel as great as Fedor Emelianenko today. And, my brother your new bride is just a beautiful as Fedor’s bride. If only you were half the man he was…”

    No. Its a joke because joe Rogan complimanted the legs of Bendo in his last fight against guida. but I do like muscular and powerful legs cause its here the power come from. Look at gsp’s legs , he can take anyone down because of them. So it is the “manlyest ” muscle group for me.

    If Edgar pulls this off, no-one will question him again. Like Edgar said, it will be nice to fight someone different than BJ and Gray….those 2 took a couple years to clear out.

    Not really sure what to make of Bendo’s skill. I’d say his only chance is catching a guillotine in a scramble or landing a big knee. Maybe he has made some huge improvements since leaving the WEC, but it’s hard to tell when he’s only beaten Jim Miller and Clay Guida, two fighters not even close to the level of Frankie Edgar. I honestly think I would pick alot of Frankies past opponents to win against Bendo (Maynard, Penn, probably even Sherk).

    1. I think your crazy as a fighter if your expectations aren’t to be “the best”. 2. I was never a huge fan of Frankie but with all of the heart and will power he showed in all of his fights, I cant bet against him. 3. Bendo is a really good challenger and I think most people think he will beat frank but I thought BJ would beat frank twice so… that being said, I think it will be a good fight. good luck to both of those guys.

    If Frankie can keep the fight in the centre of the cage its his fight to win, Bendo has to put him against the cage or somehow keep him down long enough to pull off a submission. I dont see bendo TKO Frankie on the feet as we know his chin and recovery = terminator like powers. prediction: Frankies foot work and crazy chin will prove to much for Bendo, Frankie by UD.
