Welcome the UFC 150 extravaganza! To celebrate this milestone the UFC puts out its top draws and highest ranking figh- uh no. We get an average PPV. But let???s break it down anyway, shall we? Full breakdown at 7poundbag.com Benson Henderson vs Frankie Edgar David: one of the perks of doing this RT is I get to pick the order, so I can be the first on record of taking Frankie here. The reasons are . . . Several. 1) Frankie ALWAYS looks better in rematches. He???s almost Hoodie-like in that regard. He just seems to pick up where they left off in timing and distance, and that could be bad for Bendo, who like to move a lot. 2) Frankie know if he loses, Dana???s gonna make him drop down. He???s fighting so he doesn???t have to sauna an extra 5 hours before a fight, plus he loses his quickness advantage. That???s some serious motivation. 3) It was a razor thin bout- and I???m not sure Bendo has another 25 of greatness in him. Frankie is getting to the point of rarely having a bad championship round. 4) Bendo wants to finish it early, and talks of coming out hard and fast. I???ll take Frankie???s gas tank over Bendo???s. Jim: This is going to be a damn close fight. Both guys have tremendous cardio, both have good striking and wrestling. Henderson will hold the size and strength advantage but Edgar will be the quicker fighter. I know a lot of people are on Henderson in this fight but Edgar always seems to be better in remacth fights. I think he???s going to outstrike Henderson and mix in takedowns to steal points and rounds. Take the upkick away in the first fight and I think Edgar takes that fight. I don???t see another lucky upkick here. Frankie Edgar becomes the New UFC LW champ via Unanimous Decision. Collin: Gotta differ with David on this one.?? Edgar has finally found an opponant with equal skill sets and an equal gas tank.?? Benson has killer kicks, no fear of Frankie???s power or takedowns and a great wrestling and submission game.?? Not to mention the fact that he will be about 20 pounds heavier in the cage.?? Ben can finish this fight so many different ways at any time, and I think to win Frankie needs to drag him into deep waters and either finish with a late TKO or a take a close decision.?? And with the talent and conditioning of Henderson, I simply do not see that happening. Henderson, Decision.
