The recent injury to UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis has created some shuffling in the immediate title picture, and in turn, the promotion’s return to Chicago in January has its main event.

Good match up but a bad style match up for Thompson IMO. Bendo is alot more well rounded and should be able to grind it out. I just miss the Ben Henderson pre-Edgar fights because it seems like after that war with Guida and won the title he turned into a GSP point fighter fightinf just to play it safe and retain the belt on points.

Interesting that josh took the fight.
Gilbert vs khalib may be a number one contender match

Bendo could win his next 20 fights against 20 legit challengers and I wouldn't give a f*ck unless he finished one of them.

He won 7 fights in the UFC and has only come close to finishing Frankie Edgar from an up kick. I would rather he fought low level guys and got his spark and excitement back than fought top level guys and fight to win 15/25 minutes.

Obviously not as good as the original fight, but I like it.

Bendo should take it but I'm hoping Thomson will surprise me.
