    Just announced , will be fighting at the Korea card. Probably a Co-Main event. Which means 3 round 170 Benson and 3 round Alves. Should be a fantastic fight. :D


    Who wins?



    CORRECTION: Its the headliner 5 rounds.

    I knew Alves would not be fighting at 155.

    Hopefully Alves will tear his head (and hair) off.

    Are you his manager or something? Alves will not ever fight 155. He hates cutting weight and has missed 170 multiple times. Even if he loses some muscle, he quits when weight cutting gets tough, and will never make 155.

    This is a hell of a match up.

    Benson is going to be making 170 look bad by being the smaller guy and winning.

    Holy crap, sick fight. Got Bendo by decision. He's gonna pull a rick story, and smother him to exhaustion, and possibly get a submission.

    I love WW Bendo, because he can actually utilize his quickness, and fight on the back foot, forcing the bigger guys to chase him, and capitolize on their mistakes.

    Benson in a decision is most likely. I'd love to see a finish though.

    Didn't I hear that Alves is dropping to 155? Is this his lightweight debut? Tough night for him if so.

    Though Alves is looking forward on competing in 155, he is putting it on hold for awhile and is gonna take this fight on 170. If he wins this, I'm sure he will go down to 155. This fight might be a test for him to find out where will be in the 155 title picture.

    Im guessing this is at 170?

    Benson wins via boring UD though.

    Not arsed about this.

    No weight cut Bendo is an impressive fighter. He already took out a a bigger striker than Alves. And Alves hasn't really been looking prime these days. I'm picking Bendo as well.

    It's weird as I was never really a Benson fan when he was champion. But since that time I've come to be a fan of his with his fight anyone at either weight class mentality and I really hope he does well at 170 pounds. Think Thiago is a tough out but I feel over 5 rounds Benson should be able to outwork him for a decision.

    it's going to look similar to the thatch fight, and benson will finish alves in the later rounds. his cardio at 155 was excellent even with all the weight-cut. this time, he'll probably look even better than he was for the thatch fight.
