    Benson Henderson is a -146 favorite vs Cerrone(at UFC.com).. am i the only one favoring Cowboy here?

    if this was the Cerrone that fought Diaz i would take Bendo, but Cerrone leg kicks seem more powerfull and he sets up the head kicks with body kicks now and if U try to take him down foolishly he throws a solid knee down the middle to oponents and he seems a lot more physically stronger his takedown D has looked way sharper and he still has that chin..lately Cowboy has shown more improvements where i can't say the same for Henderson

    i dont see how Bendo wins this fight unless he can get Cowboy out of position to get a takedown.. im expecting Cowboy to take it 30-27 or 29-28

    so sherdog who are u favoring? and by Dec or TKO

    Maybe even a late TKO.

    I don't know, I guess I'll take Cerrone. Maybe he even finishes Ben. But it won't surprise me if Ben wins at all either

    Feel like it's gonna end up being a really close decision, just like the first fight.

    Wouldn't be surprised if either guy walks away with it, and I like them, but I'm pullin for Cowboy.

    Benson is 2-0 over Cowboy, why wouldn't he be the favorite?

    He's the better fighter.

    Cerrone is on a win streak. Bendo is on a 2 fight losing streak. I'd pick cerrone.

    Cerrone's TDD has really improved while Bendo's wrestling seems to have regressed(ragdolling Nate notwithstanding). If it's a fight largely contested on the feet then I take Cowboy by dec.

    If it hits the floor and they get into scrambles then I think Bendo defends the subs and takes rounds with the time on top and gnp here and there.

    Idk how the fight is going to go. Hopefully it's a good one. I wish that it was a 5 rounder and I don't really see Siver/Conor needing more than 3 personally.

    Bendo is 2-0, has had a full training camp

    Cowboy has looked to be in the best shape of his life, but is rebounding with 3 weeks to train for it.

    The more I think about it, the more I think Bendo will take home a decision.

    Still betting on Cowboy, though

    Lol, so if Cro Cop fought Barnett now he would be the favorite? Or if Shogun, who should be 2-0, fought Machida?

    In any scenario an inferior fighter, who holds a <50% hypothetical chance of winning vs another opponent, can easily go 2-0 or better.

    Deserves Got Nothing To Do With It, Unfortunately
    • Bendo's on a slump, C'boy is not.
    • Bendo 2-0
    • C'boy's slow starter, Bendo will come out strong and confident.
    • If C'boy makes it to the second round I've got him winning it.

    EDIT:Short notice for C'boy

    Benson is gona try to take it to take Cerrone down and Cowboy gonna punish Benson should take it 29-28, Bensons strikin has never ben impresive and it wont match with Cerrone Benson might take the 1st but 2 and 3 will be Cerrones.. Cowboy just improves and Beson remains same old
