Pretty much sums up the HW division

Bendo is in an interesting situation to where you he can't get a title shot against Pettis but he has a win over Gilbert Melendez so if Pettis loses the belt he goes from having no chance at a title shot to having the best case for a title shot. Beating like Khabilov and RDA are still solid wins along with his win over Thomson that would make at least 3 wins for Benson since losing the belt. He definitely has a good case for a title shot if El Nino wins the belt.

This. And Melendez winning against Pettis isn't far fetched.
