Log in to Reply Iron_Cobra April 21, 2013 Bendo took 2-4 but in my opinion in order to take the belt u have to desicively beat the champ and that has yet to be done. Josh Thompson should be next. And lets get money Mendez another shot at the strap! Log in to Reply vitto April 21, 2013 ohhh.. Thats is why he won.. so he can propose.. Log in to Reply Demon79 April 21, 2013 Who won the fight? Log in to Reply Mofo April 21, 2013 Pettis has no comp does he? Log in to Reply c hill April 21, 2013 fight could a gone either way. happy for henerson on his proposal.. but truthfully. gilbert landed some mean shots maybe even meaner .. plus he scored some takedowns. damn close fight.! i’m rootin for melendez Log in to Reply Calente April 21, 2013 Bendo WON this big time, what fight were girls watching. Just so you know the Fight Metric report backs up judges hands down. Scoring: Derek Cleary Rds 1, 2 for Gil, 3, 4, 5 for Ben; Wade Vierra Rd 1, 4, 5 for Gil, 2-3 for Ben; Michael Bell 1, 5 for Gil, 2, 3, 4 Ben Log in to Reply tallandsincere April 21, 2013 First off, that was the best fight card in a very long time, amazing night of fights. Benson won the fight but only just, kept a little busier and i think melende faded slightly.. Pettis would literally man handle this division but hes chasing Aldo i love it. Log in to Reply greengiant April 21, 2013 The truth is it was close.I gave a slight edge to henderson though. Log in to Reply jaydog April 21, 2013 im sorry but there was no question henderson won 3-2. extremely close but henderson out struck melendez easily. melendez has no one but himself to blame for him losing. remember, this was melendezs home, not ben’s. im glad this was the outcome because i dont think he deserved this fight to begin with. no other SF champ got one immediately. Shouldve been Pettis. JMO. Log in to Reply jaydog April 21, 2013 Mofo, Pettis vs Thomson would be a war. Log in to Reply Demon79 April 21, 2013 I hear everyone in the weight class is afraid of him, that’s why Aldo doesn’t want to fight him? Maybe someone will soon!

Log in to Reply INANEBIGNATE April 21, 2013 It was a close fight the difference was the vast amount of leg kicks benson landed. Gil was game and definitely looked good this fight Log in to Reply Drago April 21, 2013 Amazing timing from Melendez in the 1st 2 rounds,he checked those nasty leg kicks like nothing.I gave 3rd to Melendez with or without that take down.It’s not that Bendo failed,Gilbert was on from the get go. Third time watching and still admiring those checks and timing,he threw him off his game. I’ll probably p someone off but I gave all 5 to Melendez.Very technical,fun to watch fight. Log in to Reply Drago April 21, 2013 @tallandsincere agreed,great card Log in to Reply Benjamin April 21, 2013 Boring fight. Log in to Reply johnhnhn April 21, 2013 Melendez completely outstriked and outwrestled henderson and he still lost. Does henderson have a cousin in the judges?!? He should have lost 3 in his last 4 fights!!!! Log in to Reply Not Anonymous April 21, 2013 I know they are fighting top tier competition, but it would be fun to see a champ under LHW try to finish a fight….(Jose Aldo is the exception) We’ve been stuck with GSP, Bendo, Edgar, Cruz (hasn’t even fought in 1.5 years), and now Mighty Mouse who couldn’t finish a Big Mac. Log in to Reply Young April 21, 2013 Gil won and showed how much better of a fighter he is, I say that because he had an answer and a reversal for every position Ben had him in but Ben put him in those bad positions. I don’t think there’s no way Henderson won round 2 or maybe even 3 but a close fight like this should be an immediate rematch Log in to Reply Gingjok April 21, 2013 Boring fight, switched it off after 2 rounds… Log in to Reply Thxer April 21, 2013 I gotta agree with what a lot of people are saying. Overall this was Gil’s fight. He was moving forward most of the time and had an answer for everything Ben had. He ate leg kicks but gave the more significant punches. It was obvious in that last round Gil wanted it more and was going for it while Ben was cruising like he usually does. I’d love to see a rematch at some point. Log in to Reply Young April 21, 2013 Yea they need to clarify a significant strike. Because sonnen and stann thought Gil had more significant strikes but the count went to benson. It’s because Gil strikes were actually significant and you noticed them. Everytime Ben touched him its a “significant strike” Log in to Reply Young April 21, 2013 I would say the only kicks that knocked him on the floor is a significant strike not a leg kick that Melendez checks Log in to Reply R3X April 21, 2013 Watched the fight three times.. Melendez landed more frequently and with better precision. He pressed the fight and still loses hahaha horrible officials, at least give the guy a draw! Log in to Reply steptof April 21, 2013 Fact of the matter is… GIL has more decision wins in his career than BEN. Including a razor thing decision just before this fight. – You have to beat the champ to be the champ and GIL just didn’t push the pace and land the #’s needed to win. Fight metrics Don’t lie Log in to Reply Kiko April 22, 2013 this fight was pretty close,it could had been decided on a coin toss type of scenario,but In my opinion the judges dropped the ball&Melendez got robbed!4 title fights for Bendo 3 questionable decisions,personally I think Frankie got robbed twice the 2 times they fought,Maynar and TJ Grant don’t stand a chance,rematch I says!!! even though Im sick of rematches but since there’s no clear contender might as well do another one. Log in to Reply adictfanatic April 22, 2013 both fighters gave it all!!! please fighters keep your private life out of the octagon Log in to Reply Diaz4Life April 22, 2013 What is it with Ben shooting in with the headbutts?….. Log in to Reply kill666 April 22, 2013 Gilbert Melendez won this fight came one Benson Henderson just score some points with the kicks and got scare to trade with Melendez. Melendez should get a rematch. Log in to Reply Norm April 23, 2013 round 2 for Benson ??? dunno but I was very surprised w decision have to give it for Gil, a true warrior..! Log in to Reply jonnyx April 24, 2013 I like bendo, but I think melendez just edged him out. Gil was more willing to engage and 100% won rounds 1,2. Rounds 3,4,5 were close but it seemed like benson wasn’t doing much damage. Idk where these significant strike counts come from. If anything I’d say it was a draw at best.
