Scratch that Herman thought. I was confusing him with Danzig for some odd reason.

i might be in the minority but bendo and cerrone arent close to their lines imo.....edgar almost won last fight and could quite easily win this one.....yet hes +155  or more......while cerrone has the definite better ground game and can very easily win the fight there guillards striking is 2nd to none....with his power and explosiveness standing i find it hard to believe hes damn near a 3-1 dog.....remember this kid was a win or 2 away from a title shot not even a year ago....has he really fallen that fast?

Yeah I think one of my larger plays will be the over 4.5 in the main event.

And I see Bendo winning.

I love Frankie, I really do. He could be a force at 145. The perfect timing for him to move down would be when Aldo finally gets tired of almost killing himself and moves up to clean up the 155 division.

I understand some people may just like Bendo or think he wins. 

But how does anyone not think Frankie has no value?  I think Bendo at almost 2 to 1 is crazy.  The fight was scored for Frankie by many people.  If an upkick from his back doesn't land flush Frankie would have went up 2-0 to start that fight.  Frankie has done better in each of his last 2 rematches. 

It should be a close fight.  And I don't see a reason why I won't put money on the dog here.  Should be close to a pick'em fight really.

over 4.5 rds might be the smartest play. hendo is not getting ko'd frankie ain't getting ko'd. no one getting subbed. i just wonder what the odds will be.

wouldnt suprise me at all to see frankie win the rematch. he has the much crisper and faster boxing, was able to take away the leg kicks of bendo before the upkick and could out point henderson as he has proven to gameplan and execute well in rematches.

That must have been a 'hard' fight, real 'stiff' competition.
