So what's changed? Either way I think bendo has a legit chance of getting smoked.

Well he didn't get smoked the first time they fought. In fact, I think he won that fight. It was close and had the showtime kick not landed, he would have walked away the last WEC lightweight champion.

I think this fight will look very similar to their first fight, but possibly closer to Guida/Pettis. WEC used a smaller cage, which means guys fought much closer. With the increased real estate, Benson has plenty more room to stay out of range and work for takedowns.

Ben improves leaps and bounds every time he fights, yet he never gets any credit. It is always, well he has no chance against this guy!

I think Ben's problem is his lack of finishing power of late, something the casual fan demands more.

That might be part of it. I agree that he improves every fight but the only fight I have watched of his that I thought he was just a beast was the Diaz fight. I respect Bendo and I think he is a beast but I definitely think TJ Grant would have wrecked him. I would put money on it.

I forgot that Silva knocked himself out. In that case I expect Silva to submit himself in the rematch. :)
