|I took benson at +102 at pinny 2 weeks ago because i thought i was not the only 1 who could see the size and overall talent diff. in these 2 fighters.

I am shocked and still am that the line went up to 150 before settling around 135.
I am 110% convinced that many bettors were fam. with the former champ but were NOT very fam. with Ben Henderson.
Amazing considering Ben won his 3 fights in the UFC leading up to this title shot in DOMINATING fashion while Frankie, bless his heart, was life and death at times in the last 2 years in his fights.
Ben totally had a huge advantage in recent performances in the cage comparing the 2, so it had to be a issue of the somewhat unknown towards Ben.
I saw good value at +102 after i saw BEN just walk through his last 3 UFC opp. and looked great doing it vs this LESS than DOMINATING champion.
O well not enough bettors saw it except sharp and well a few others.
