Rafael dos Anjos said he's "not surprised at all" that so many lightweight contenders are taking notice and mentioning him as a possible opponent. Five-fight winning streaks have a way of doing that.

I wouldn't mind a Dunham rematch but I doubt that happens. Bendo sounds reasonable as does Gil. I still think Grant needs his title shot.

If he wants Bendo and Bendo saying he wants him....why not make it happen?

great litmus test for RDA against a top 5 opponent. Bendo needs to get back into the title talk. This would be a great matchup.

Rooting for RDA

I've had Khabib and RDA in my top 10 for a while now and I'd love to see either of them fight the other.

Personally though I think they need to completely rebuild Bendo. Yes he was a world champion but he isn't marketable at all. He should go right down and fight a guy like Michael Johnson.

He'll never get back to the top fighting guys he can't LnP on.

I, for some strange reason, thought RDA vs Khabib was happening, they both have around a 5 fight win streak. Grant has been out a while, he may have lost his shot.
Grant vs Gil
Bendo vs RDA, I think Gleison would beat RDA again though.
