i mean he's the strikeforce champion and has fought many significant opponents over the years. plus timing-wise it makes perfect sense for him to fight bendo around march so i'm thinking that it's a good move.
pettis/cerrone should get the deuce after or should fight alvarez in an eliminator if he's coming over.
Gil lost to Thomson his last fight....close fight but Thomson should have gotten the nod.
With that said:
He should fight for the No. 1 Contender
I dislike Bendo and Gil so it will be a fun fight for me, though gil is gonna get outclassed.
Gill will be a top 10 fighter for sure. maybe #7 or #8. (that or he drops to FW after he gets trounced by Bendo)
