    Just because you cage kicked Bendo doesnt mean you'll be champ. He wont fall for that again.

    Ben would beat him in a rematch. But I don't think Pettis will get past Cerrone.

    I like the kid. He's had a rough go since coming over. There was so much hype behind him when he signed, but with the loss to Guida and the injury, he hasn't been able to put a lot of wind behind his sail and he has a tough fight in front of him with Cerone.

    I wish him luck, but I'm a Cowboy fan, so I'll be rooting for DC, but if he wins I'll be happy for him. He will have beaten a great fighter in a tough division. Good for him if he does. Likewise for Cerone if he beats Pettis.

    This should be a competitive match-up. May the best man win.

    @ Entity

    Both good fighters though. You'll have to admit. We should get a heck of a fight. The thing with DC is though, sometimes you're not sure which DC is going to show up. I remember the Diaz fight, I had Donald in that all day long. I thought he'd beat the snot out of Nate. I was wrong. Nate beat him up, but good.

    Pettis is a game fighter and Donald isn't looking for a ground fight, so...we shall see. I hope DC wins. I'd like to see him fight Bendo for the title. Provided BH doesn't lose to Mendez.

    Enjoy the fight(s) on Saturday night.
