Very lucky injury for the UFC to get the big money fight people want to see.  Maybe too lucky?

Their first fight was a good one but I don't think this will be anywhere close to that. Henderson has improved by leaps and bounds since then, IMO. I see a one sided fight that goes the distance.

Although the UFC will undoubtedly make some big money on the fight. More so than if it were the other guy.

I don't know.  I think Pettis style is one guy who can still give Bendo a tough time.   
Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

Plus the guys he controversially has beaten to keep the title.  I have no problem with Bendo but he arguably could be the 5th best guy in the division right now if some controversial decisions were reversed.

I also think pettis could give benson some problems but I can see him eventually overwhelming him.
