    For the sole reason that he was an active Champ.

    Pettis is made of glass....... Im truly tired of champions holding up divisions.

    No. The only thing that sucks with Pettis is that we never see him fight.

    Yup. Agree, Pet is exciting as all, but the time between his matches is crazy.

    For all of Bendo's faults, at least he defended the belt

    Not me, his PPV's were nothing but expensive quaaludes. Him and GSP's.

    Benson really should be pretty far removed from even saying the word "title" . He can do all things through the judges. I mean god. Tonight was his first solid win in a long time

    Yup.. And I actually enjoy Bendo's fights. Obvs Pettis's are more enjoyable but they're only like once a year. Fuck all that

    Melendez vs Pettis will be great tho

    No thanks but i'm thankful that he got rid of Edgar...actually he just moved Frankie to my favorite division in 145 so I'm glad he doesn't have the belt.

    That would be the only way he would ever get it from Pettis.

    Do you really want a paper champion?

    That is one thing you can't take away from Benson is he was very active

    Bendo gets a lot of criticism (especially from those "much more enlightened and tolerant than Christians" atheists). But people forget that he has put on some classic fights: Melendez, both Edgar fights, 1st Pettis fight, Diaz fight. The guy doesn't have the skills to finish everyone, but he comes to fight every time.

    He's without a doubt the second best and takes on all comers but no Pettis is better.

    He doesn't need to take it back from Pettis. I don't know where this idea of Pettis's invincibility came from. Everybody thought guys like Anderson, GSP, Jones, and Barao had no worthwhile competition. Remember how that turned out? And Pettis hasn't shown the career consistency that those guys have. I wouldn't be surprised if Pettis isn't the champ this time next year.
