    Not talking about hus quality of opponent, just when he's looked the best.

    For me it was against Siver and Dunham because he started out very quickly in those fights and looked unstoppable

    siver was looking good and then cowboy dominated him and rocked him then subbed him, that was sick, also the comebacks to melvin and barbosa were sick

    Yeah those were spectacular but his lack of head movement always makes me nervous. You can get away with it just for so long

    Bendo v. Cowboy pt I

    I'm absolutely convinced that Cerrone won that fight.

    Hopefully he has a gameplan to defend those single-legs.

    The way he defeated Dunham really stood out to me in that Dunham had semi-recently been robbed of a win from RDA. I'm also pretty sure that's the only submission loss that Dunham has in his career.

    Agreed. I just rewatched it yesterday and Cerrone deserved the nod. Those sub attempts were ridiculous. Those kimuras looked PAINFUL. Bendo is made out of fucking rubber.

    But I think Cowboys best UFC showing is either Miller or Dunham. He looked like a destroyer in both those fights.

    Thats why it was such a wtf moment when pettis subbed Benson in like 2 seconds.

    Yes i too believe cerrone won that first fight. Its scary how good he gets in the later rounds

    There's so many very good performances, not one great one, so it's hard to tell. You could pick from Siver, Oliveira, Varner 2, Miller, Dunham, Jury, Stephens, and Alvarez; from a dominance against a solid opponent or win against an outstanding opponent perspective.

    But don't give answers like Barboza and Guillard. It doesn't constitute a really good performance when you get hurt badly or ripped apart, but then comeback to finish in an instant. That would be an over-emphasis on finishing and warrior spirit or b.s. like that. You should be trying to dominate damage-wise and ideally it results in a finish too.

    Cowboy is still looking for his signature performance after all these 26 UFC fights. He could get it this weekend against Bendo.

    So Bendo gets no credit for surviving against those submissions and then controlling and beating on Cowboy from the top for 3
