    Looked flat as fuck.

    I think his attitude towards anytime/anywhere might've hurt him in this one.

    Looks like he lacks confidence to me. I think he took round 1 and was doing well at the start of round 2 but Bendo turned it up a notch and Cerrone just seemed to fade.

    Could never beat the very top guys. Always runs into a road block when he fights someone in the top 5.

    Can't deny him a shot now. He's the number 1 contender for sure.

    yeah they can. the current champion made him quit w/ a body kick and he gave up a shit ton of those tonight. although seeing him drop from that liver kick by pettis was fun, i'd watch it again.
