My only concern for Bendo is sometimes I think he is not the better striker but doesn't go to plan B because he is a vicious fighter who wants to knock you out. If it goes to the ground, he can handle it but soemtimes needs to accept when the fight isn't going his way i.e. Pettis and Edgar and even Cerrone. If he is losing the boxing, will he be stubborn til the end and perhaps lose or will he take to the fight to an area he has a clear advantage - wrestling.
That's something to think about, and I believe Ben Henderson has better cardio too. I have a feeling he makes a comeback in this one.
