This is a fight that I was both ecstatic and terrified to hear was being made. I am a fan of both fighters (Though I lean more Bendo) and feel both have done a tremendous amount for the UFC even despite the criticisms of Bendo's style. So with that being said, this is a worrying fight in terms of rankings for both guys. Cerrone has lost to both Dos Anjos and Pettis, and recently or viciously enough that a rematch would be a tough sell at best. A loss to Bendo would mean he would have lost to the top 3 lightweights in the company, and honestly I would have a hard time picking cowboy against Gil. This could be Cerrone's last title eliminator if he loses decisively. Bendo on the other hand is a former champion whose only two losses in the UFC are currently in a fight for the belt. However Bendo has also been heavily criticized for not finishing and fighting too safely, despite finishing Khalibov. What's worse is both his losses came by being finished. A loss to Cerrone combined with the fears about his style could mean Bendo is pushed away from the title (barring injuries) So in terms of ranking and ever getting a chance to wear the UFC belt (again) either guy could be pushed into a gatekeeper with a loss until the division sorts itself out, and by then it could be too late. In your opinion, who would be in a worse position with a loss?
