He handled Bocek too, IIRC. He doesn't get much cred because he has no UFC finishes and had close defences, but nothing was mentioned about the insane depth of the talent pool and how good the guys were that Benson beat (I think he beat Gil, but should have lost Frankie II).

Too much Jesus, and too many razor-thin decisions in his title reign.

Thats why no one misses him. I was one of those who was anticipating his losing of the title.

The fans on here constantly shit on him and he's nothing but respectful.

Idiots hate him for his faith and yet he's one of the most exciting LW's in the UFC.

Sherdog always hates the good guy.
Childish move by the fans

This. Bendo has been in a few close decisions, but never a dull fight. It's crazy that the guy has relatively few fans compared to the amount of excitement he brings to the Octagon.
