    So while the division is on hold for the Pettis-Melendez season of TUF, Bendo deserves a top LW for an Eliminator fight.

    Not too often he finishes a fight, but he looked IMPRESIVE tonight.

    He is CLEARLY #2 behind Pettis.

    Who do we stick him against???

    only fight that makes sense is Khabib

    also Khabib wins, especially a 3 rounder .He's better than Rustam

    agreed.

    apparently this was his first finish in 11 fights. Hopefully this lights a fire and he starts finishing more often

    Bendo has two losses against the champ but has basically beaten everyone else including the number one contender.

    I would rather see Bendo get the next crack as opposed to anybody else, especially if Gilbert wins the belt.

    Bendo was on fire tonight, all the way from walk ins til the finish. He actually FINISHED a fight, but he needs more dominant wins before he can fight Pettis again.

    I think he needs a title eliminator vs khabib. They've been on a collision course ever since khabib beat Healy.

    I beg you to put him in there with Khabib, so he can get ragdolled....Khabib is a savage and the BIGGEST THREAT to Anthony Pettis's LW championship

    Gils good but he likes to stand and box a little too much, Aldo doesnt have the TDs and would get UD maybe finished, Khabib will get in his face make a firefight instead of fighting tactical and force pettis to move backwards with his Striking/Grappling

    Showtime is my favorite fighter, but Khabib might just take his belt...im extremely nervous/anxious for this fight to see Pettis challenge himself(not that he hasnt) but everyone that calls him out he destroys so id like to see him in a war

    Bendo vs Khabib for #1 contender. Honestly, it should've always been Khabib. Bendo was too much of a step up for Khabilov.

    He misses that belt. Looked like a monster tonight. He should fight Khabib and the winner gets next crack at it.

    But has Khabib ever fought a 5 rounder before???

    And I just have never seen him fight a "REALLY GOOD" wrestler before. Shalorus was good, but he was garbage in the UFC compared to with his striking.

    He could get a title fight if Pettis wasn't injured and locked into a dumb defense against Melendez.

    A fight with Khabilov makes the most sense. I'd like to see Khabib in rounds 4 and 5. I'm always surprised he's not completely tired after round 3 since he's an active guy.

    bendo/khabib for a title shot, imo. josh Thomson/mj winner vs. cerrone/miller winner for the next shot (RDA is up there, too)
