I don't think Benny-poo is the best LW, but I think he will beat Edgar. He's a crafty mofo and I think is too big for Franklin Edgar. I dont think Benny will hold the belt for a real long time, but I think he can be Mr. E.



If u think Ben is stronger than Maynard you is a crazy<aybe in the legs but upper body thats a negative...



But lower body strength is arguably much more important. The muscles in your legs are much more powerful and larger. He's going to be able to push Frankie around, will have more explosion behind his tkd's, punches, kicks, ect. than Maynard did.

There's upsides and downsides to being really strong in either your upper or lower body.

Gray is likely more conditioned to exert his strength in bursts, and Bendo is going to be stronger in the clinch. I expect niether is much stronger than the other overall.

What i will say though, is i really doubt bendo is going to be able to clinch up with edgar due to the disparity in footwork and outside striking game.

I'll be looking forward to watching a fight where I don't hear boo-ing
