    How do you guys feel about this? What does this mean for the Eddie Alverez situation? Do they not plan on him coming until later down the road? Are they just going to throw him in there against anyone? What's your guys though on this? The site is mmafighting.com

    Melendez gets hurt and the fight never comes to fruition. My honest thoughts about it.

    awesome. Gil deserves it. Let's do it. I just hope he's fully healed. His shoulder was really fucked up. 4 months should be a good enough time. Awesome fight. Glad they're doing it and not putting it off.

    Bendo: "I'm so happy with my new contract, finally got the % of PPV clause in."
    White: "Here's to you being our standard free TV star!"

    Good Gil deserves it, but he'll have to really be locked into beat the Bendo that just throttled Diaz.

    Dude Alvarez isn't even the Bellator champion, why would he get an instant title shot?

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I wanna set Bendo vs. Pettis. Or Bendo vs. Cerrone, but I guess that was never supposed to happen yet anyway...

    still think if Pettis gets a dominant win over Cerrone and calls out Bendo in the cage we'll get that fight

    I love that they are making Bendo the face of the UFC on Fox.

    Did I rustle a feather, expect a guy whose been here so long to have some humility. Guess not.

    What does Alvarez have to do with anything?

    He's not a champ. When he comes over he should fight a fringe top 10 LW to see where he belongs.

    bendo has fought pettis once, and cerrone twice, and you'd rather see those rematches before him fighting gil melendez?

    you must not be following his UFC negotiations. His contract says instant title shot.

    Pettis, considering he lost to him, and it was a great fight.

    Definitely not following them other than the Bellator lawsuit BS. That is crazy to me, in a pretty deep division why does he deserve a title shot?!
