    After watching the fight, I'm really hard pressed to see how Khabilov can beat Bendo. Jorge gave him a hard fought fight, and Bendo is on another level.

    Jorge is pretty underrated, as far as I am concerned.
    It was a great win for Rustam.

    Masvidal is seriously underrated.

    Rustam's cardio in that fight is what convinces me that Bendo takes this though

    It depends. Clay Guida gave Anthony Pettis a hard fight and he beat Henderson twice.

    Masvidal is very talented. It isn't necessarily correct to say that Bendo is on another level.

    Always known sherdoggers respected masvidal, as I also believe he is a wild card.

    Respect the opinion tho ts

    Didn't say he was a scrub. But Bendo is on another level.

    So many people are underrating both rustam and masvidal...rustam matches up well with benson, tonight we witness the solidification of rustam in the division

    Masvidal gives almost anyone a hard fight. Hell, he'd probably give Bendo a hard fight.

    I still thinks Henderson wins tonight though. He has so much more experience and he's so well rounded and well conditioned. I think he'll find a way to win even if he struggles early.

    Masvidal talent wise is top 10 material. Hopefully he breaks Cruikshank down and gets a top fighter. The toughest fight Jorge has was vs Gil and he stood toe to toe with him with a broken hand. He also gave Rustam a tough fight. I really don't think he's on much lower level other than ranking wise. Jorge 2014!!

    The fact that everyone responding to this post is only doing so to defend Masvidal's credentials should tell you otherwise.

    Jorge would be a clearly much more difficult fight for Bendo than Khabilov IMO. No way Khabilov could clinch or control the grappling with Bendo.
    Ill guess i will find out soon

    Masvidal will be the harder fight for Khabilov than Henderson will be.

    Different kind of fighters with different strengths.

    Jorge is a tough fight for anyone. Bendo is ranked a lot higher at the moment, but if a few of his questionable decisions went the other way people might be talking about Masvidal as the tougher fight.

    Of course Bendo is on another level.

    People here claiming that he is not are delusional.

    Yes, Masvidal is very talented but he is nowhere near Bendo.

    The Bendo hate has been so out of control that people actually try to be serious when they adress certain issues, like this one for example.

    I could have made the same thread, I absolutely agree. I don't like Bendo much and love Masvidal, who completely deserved the win over Rustam. He negated all grappling and beat him on the feet minus that 1 head kick.

    Rustam has nothing. This should be Jorge's fight against Bendo, which would be more interesting imo.
