    Who would pose the most problems for Bendo?

    Michael Chandler
    Gilbert Melendez
    Gray Maynard
    Eddie Alvarez
    Donald Cerrone

    I'd love to see how Maynard fairs. Same with Cerrone but I'm a Cerrone nuthugger.

    Melendez, good enough takedown defense to force Bendo to fight standup

    Cerrone already fought Bendo twice. Why would we need to see that again?

    Maynard.

    I don't even consider pettis a threat to Bendo anymore.

    What makes you think that?

    Anyone think Michael Chandler is as good as Maynard? Seems like they're mirror images of one another. Except Chandler is younger and presumably a higher development ceiling. Plus guy has about the same amount of fights but undefeated and finished Alvarez...i think the only LW to accomplish that by really setting up the submission by badly hurting him standing.

    Seems like Chandler has as much if not more potential than Maynard.

    I'd say the last guy to beat him, so Frankie Edgar.
