    Let us take a look 1:

    [​IMG]
    Justin vs Max is a fight that pits 2 up and coming fighters without a wealth of knowledge in the ring together.
    This fight has EVEN written all over it.
    Max fights out of Hawaii, while Justin fights out of Blackhouse.


    [​IMG]
    Jake vs Ed is a serious match-up. I feel their skills are VERY similar,
    Herman having the better hands.
    Some would argue Jake has the better BJJ,
    but I feel that is neither here nor there, as Herman is NO SLOUCH BJJ wise.
    Possible FOTN?


    [​IMG]
    Yushin vs Buddy is a much bigger fight for YUSHIN than it is for Buddy,
    which is very odd for an Underdog like Roberts. Okami has lost his last two,
    and losing a third in a row to a youngin,
    (though it wouldn't mean losing his job),
    would mean he loses his elite status in the division.
    Buddy on the other-hand is just under 30 and sports a 12-2 record.
    This is his biggest test to date and you can bet he is coming prepared.


    Donald Cerrone vs Melvin Guillard
    [​IMG]
    Melvin vs Donald is a serious matchup. With Cerrone,
    we have a complete Mixed martial artist with great leg kicks,
    solid hands, and a touted BJJ game.
    Melvin on the other hand has a textbook full of standup options,
    and not so much on the BJJ end of things.
    I have seen BOTH do well,
    but I have a feeling Melvin's kryptonite will come back to haunt him in this fight.


    Frank Edgar vs Benson Henderson
    [​IMG]
    LAST BUT NOT LEAST, we have the Main Event of the night.
    The Rematch KING and the LW Champ. Benson is a tough S.O.B,
    long thought to be the BEST man in the 155 LB division
    while he wasn't in the UFC
    (people weren't talking Gilbert until he was one of the few champs we hadn't seen in the UFC,
    after Benson had signed with them
    ),
    he proved he was last time out in February.
    I think this kid has enough talent to finish the rematch,
    never-mind make it exciting, if he stays confident and pushes the pace. Frank on the other hand I am looking to go for the
    dominating throws and takedowns early,
    showing and dictating that this is going to be a dog-fight.
    I don't see Benson being knocked out,
    but I could see a decision in his favor. ​

    tbh I cant see benson knockin out frankie. Edgar is the surviving KING. After seeing how well he could take shots against maynard it doesnt seem like anybodys stopping this little guy. The favor is in bensons way but dont be surprised to see frankie go HAM in the last rounds

    melvin has so much potential and athletic ability than maybe anybody in the UFC, but somebody teach this guy submission defense and how to take his time!!!

    I wouldnt be surprised to see yushin or shields take a ko loss, but if not, then the fights in the bag

    Yeah I was hoping for that as well.

    Either way, I was trying to imply if Benson really is a young phenom, like Jones, he will be improving. Last time he injured Frank bad...Though I really can't argue Edgar's heart, he has that on lock.

    jones is the fastest improving fighter in ufc history, maybe even contact sports history. i wouldnt compare bendo to him as bendo has been fighting for years and is nearly 30.

    badly hurting edgar is like badly hurting arturo gatti (r.i.p.) it doesn't really matter its like they fight better hurt

    The more I think about it, the more I'm confident in my Bendo pick. Frankie is good but I see his adjustments being small compared to Henderson's.

    Ben looks to be in 10 times better shape, and this was his road in the UFC. HIS FIRST TIME THERE. Frank has peaked in my eyes, he has been in the UFC for how many fights now? We won't be seeing new things from Edgar, unless that new thing is a division change (which I would welcome).

    Benson is only getting better. But if he gets laid out wow will I eat my words.

    There are adjustments to be made for Frankie. He should've learned to fight a southpaw a little better and hopefully will look to put Bendo on his butt a few time. A points battle, basically.

    Frank doesn't have a huge bag of tricks, but he's pretty good at mixing up striking and wrestling.
