    He also had only td of the fight. Crazy how his wrestling got better since wec
    And ben's got worse. He got outwrestled by bocek,edgar,melendez,josh(with broken hand),khabilov
    Cerrone got taken down less times than ben in ufc. So idk why he didnt throw more kicks and went for td even more

    No, it's just that Bendo has insanely overrated wrestling.

    What decent wrestler has Bendo ever outwrestled? The only one I can think of is Guida, and that was more of a stalemate rather than Bendo actually noticeably outwrestling him.

    On the flip side, Bendo got thrown around by Thomson, taken down effortlessly by Khabilov, etc.

    And Bendo apparently has better striking that Cerrone now. What a delightfully ironic turn of events.

    Bendo doesn't really have good takedowns. His takedown defense is decent but he has a good guard and he is hard to control so he doesn't mind if he is on his back.

    Yes what the hell. I figured Cerrone should beat Bendo this time because no way Bendo outwrestles him again. Doesnt help if you cant outstrike the guy anymore.

    Im still happy its 2-1 now though.

    Bendo is not a wrestler machine he is just good everywhere. And Cerrone somehow freezes every time he fight a top 5 fighter omfg his face change.

    The usual suspects trying to fit a narrative they have an agenda for in this thread.

    Bendo didn't really attempt td's against Cerrone because he thought he had the fight won standing, as did a high majority of people.

    And the only reason Cerrone was shooting was because he thought he was getting beat on the feet himself. On his attempts he was successful on a whole 1 out of 7 officially. Wow, that's awesome! But ironically this being spun as a positive.

    The fight said absolutely nothing about Bendo's td's and relative wrestling game. It was a hard sparring match between buddies, that Cerrone was losing, so he had to switch gears a bit and wrestle, which he had minimal success with.

    See, you're trying to fit a narrative. He didn't need to try and take Cerrone down because he was seemingly comfortably winning the stand-up. Cerrone started shooting only because he was losing. That was basically an admission of defeat because you know it's not something Cerrone wants to do. Then he got bailed out anyways by the judges. It's speculative and disingenuous as hell to argue Bendo didn't attempt td's because he knew he couldn't achieve them.

    Your analysis of him losing the wrestling in some other fights is silly too.

    For example:

    Bendo was 4 of 4 on td's vs. Thomson. Thomson was 4-11. Bendo wanted to strike mostly because he was winning on the feet.

    Against Bocek he was MUCH more efficient on his own td's and wrestling in reverse because he was the superior striker.

    You're reaching in a big way here. If a guy is beat on the feet he's going to try and wrestle a lot more. By virtue of that he's likely to get as many or more td's. That doesn't mean he's winning the wrestling.

    I was surprised he was able to take Bendo down, i know he's good with the grappling so that's nice to see.

    Yes,he was better on the feet in bocek and rustam fights. I dont remember him scoring 4 td vs josh. He had two at best. Josh had broken hand and beat him standing AND on the ground. I agree fighter that isnt comfortable on the feet goes for td,but if ben is better wrestler he should stuff it,right? Fact is frankie,bocek,gil,rustam,josh landed more td than him
