    i'm not sure if benson is the most overrated fighter ever or what. every fight he has is ultra close. this should be no different, but i give koreshkov the edge. we saw what happened the last time benson fought a dangerous kicker...

    Be honest, have you seen Andrey Koreshkov fight?

    I'm more curious as to who Bellator wants to win? I could see them wanting Koreshkov to win to legitamize their fighters more but they also spent a lot of money on Bendo so I could see them wanting him over a guy who doesnt speak english.

    I have and he is hard to figure out. I though Lima was going to crush him. Askren stole my ability to believe in Koreshkov as a fighter but a win over Benson combined with that Lima fight and I will be a believer.

    If Koreshkov comes out and trys to outgrapple Bendo, then i got Bendo by 1st round sub.

    If Koreshkov tries to keep it standing, I can see him winning UD

    He's definitely improved as a fighter since the Askren fight. No way 2013-Koreshkov was going to dominate Lima like he did. Benson is really good and could pull off a SD, hard to pick a winner for this fight.

    if Koreshkov isn't rusty, I think he handles Henderson. Ben is a great fighter, but Koreshkov is bigger and he's a nasty guy.

    Oh I know he has improved; that Lima fight showed it big time. For as great as that was though; that ragdolling visual still remains in my head even if it isn't fair to him, if he can out stage Benson though that would be huge in terms of showing he has evolved as a fighter.
