    Ben is a beast who is hungry.

    • Sweet game plan says:

      Everywhere there is heart there is…The Answer!!!!

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      Frankie will run away(AS USUAL) but get slammed and beat ahalf to death, pron knocked down 5 times in first round and do absolutely no damage to hendersen but he will get the nod from judges. Owe wait that happens in almsot all Frankies fights. hopefullu Bendo will juts finish him because that is only chance he has to win a decsion over frankie PERIOD. All judges know Frankie is Dana’s boy and they are afraid of Dana

  2. Nick says:

    Ben will take him. I won’t be surprised if Frankie wins though. I just see Ben beating him everywhere.

  3. Shawn says:

    Ben will b a fight like Maynard…but w a bigger, faster, arguably stronger, much more rounded, and cardio freak guy. Toughest fight to date for Edgar.

  4. Me says:

    Edgar all day! easy pick

  5. stone cold says:

    edgar can win if he hits and run all day waiting for him to get to him. but i think benson would beat him up in the clinch and ground. hope he beats edgar’s ass!

  6. KRodr13 says:

    The NEW Lightweight Champion of the world, Benson “Smooth” Henderson!!!

  7. Mark says:

    Watch out for the instant FANS of Edgar if he wins this Sunday

  8. 209 says:

    i got benson by a hair

  9. AK says:

    Tough one to call…Frankie refuses to lose but Benson has been fighting like The Terminator lately. I do agree there will be a LOT more Edgar fans after this fight if he wins..he’s relatively low key..idk why though he’s the champion in the #1 company in the toughest division in MMA..but I guess casual fans don’t understand that

  10. 808 says:

    I’ve got Edgar winning this; my money does not lie.

  11. cody says:

    i want been to win but frankie could easily do to him what he did to bj just run away and score cause he defintly doesnt want to wrestle with bendo

  12. Donnybrook says:

    I’m going with Edgar on this one, the man never ceases to amaze me… with out a doubt one off the biggest if not the biggest hearts in all of MMA!!

  13. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Idk why Edgar is the underdog again. I stopped counting him out after he KO’ed Maynard. Edgar is a relentless little man!

  14. Harry says:

    Frankie Edgar is a beast. Benderson is a machine. This will be a war, but I think Edgar’s Boxing and footwork will take the night. 48-47 Edgar I think. This is really a fight for Edgar to lose though IMHO.

  15. A.James says:

    Ben is one of my faves BUT, Edgar has the better hands and wrestling and has the speed factor. Edgar may even have the better endurance. Benson has the strength/power and subs however. Unless Ben hurts Frankie and subs him in the beginning Frankie will take this.

  16. Diaz Fan says:

    Frankie is a safe bet. Rooting for bendo though

  17. Pijan says:

    Not an Edger fan, never really have been, but he earned my respect when he beat BJ twice. He better hold the belt. Tough fight, but I see Edger emerging victorious.

    • Jason N says:

      he beat him once for sure(2nd fight). Still think BJ won the first. Also think he lost the first Maynard fight. He does have heart. Just not a fan. I really like Bendo though.

  18. nick says:

    i cant beleive that the polls are 40% to 55% in favor of benson.How can u count frankie out,the guy has been almost knocked out twice by maynard and came back to win.i dont think that benson has ever foughta guy like frankie.Frankies speed i think is gonna be to much for benson

  19. mean170 says:

    Potential for fight of the year. I picked Bendo, but who the f*ck knows. Looking forward to this more than any fight on any upcoming cards.

  20. slacker says:

    I don’t see why the majority of people are picking Henderson on the voting here. His stand – up is not even as good as Maynard’s. His wrestling is not better than Maynard’s and Edgar was able to stuff him almost everytime. Edgar is gonna pick Henderson apart on the feet with his quickness, footwork, and angles. He will also take him down when he “jumps” forward with his jabs the way he does. Edgar has got this.

  21. dlo' says:

    Ben Henderson lacks the skills and conditioning.

  22. dlo' says:

    Edgar got this. I just think his boxing will be the difference. I also this Henderson’s stamina will be an issue. Frankie can be beat, but it’s not be Henderson.

  23. jimbo says:

    brah, i fkn hate spankie edgar!! he is on kwea!!!!!!!

  24. Xaninho says:

    Henderson will win this. Edgar will move down a weightclass after this fight.

  25. ..... says:

    AS usual, frankie edgar the underdog…..jet’ another upset for The Answer!!!

  26. magoo says:

    2 great fighters it should be an exciting fight… rooting for Frankie I he will have the answers for benson.

  27. Chartmonster says:

    Ben has the power speed and very well rounded skills to shut down FE. Bendo the LW champ!

    • slacker says:

      He has got power, but he doesn’t have speed. His punches are slower than Maynard’s. Edgar is gonna hit him from lots of different angles. He’s gonna jump in and out like the little firefly that he is and Henderson won’t be able to catch him. After this fight, Henderson’s nickname is gonna change from smooth to “slow”.

  28. MMA Knowitall says:

    Edgar everyday and twice on Saturday.

  29. Matthew Overman says:

    frankie edgar has this wrapped up, the man is a beast

  30. Josh says:

    I don’t know who to pick, I mean I was going to pick Ben because I’ve been a fan since wec, but at the same time it’s hard to bet against Edgar. I think if Ben has a gameplan to stop Edgar foot work and body him it’s his fight to win. Not to mention Ben Probaly has one of the best guillotines there is. But stand up advantage goes to frankie…Idk who to pick but it’s gonna be good

  31. Donnybrook says:

    It would be nice if I could turn the MOBILE THEME OFF!… every time I do the page just reloads and it’s back on again and I hate this new format. I’ve mentioned this befor and have seen other poeple comment on how sh!ty the new format is, please fix this problem or your going to lose visitors to this site.

    • RonDon says:

      If you’re searching from your phone, you have the ability to turn it off at the very bottom just FYI. If your searching from the comp, you shouldn’t even be able view it via mobile. Hope that helps

  32. GET RID OF FITCH says:

    Frankie will get beat half to death and not do any damage but somehow he will EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEk out a decsion over Bendo.

  33. mma is my religion. says:

    Ben takes this one easy, by Sunday morning will say that were now in the Ben era.

    • CanILive says:

      if that happens it will be just to lose it back to Anthony Pettis

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      I hope you’re right but everyone knows if it goes to a decsion regardless if there was 2 10-8 rounds where Frankie had gotten beat half to death he will steal decsion. Dana wants Frankie to be champ and all judges know this. Does anyone think there is a judge in MMA that wanst to be on bad side of Dana White. He has power to run anyone right out of MMA

  34. Koshchek Loves Cock In His Ass says:

    Look. The bottom line is Henderson is not gonna make the same mistakes as Maynard. Once Ben has Frankie hurt he will not keep going for the knockout like Maynard did. He will go for the sub, most likely a guillotine, and finish him. My prediction. You heard it here first.

  35. alex says:

    there is nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo way in hell that henderson will beat edgar. Frankie is going to make ben wish the wec was still around

  36. alex says:

    plus u guys are retarded running is wat anderson silva did vs demian maia. edgar stays allusive, like lyoto machida. thats not running thats smart

    • GET RID OF FITCH says:

      What Frankie does is flat out RUNNING AWAY PERIOD. go back and watch both round 1’s in edagr/maynard 1 and 2 Frankie ran away plain and simple. turned his back and ran a way. no otehr way to explain it. If Bendo can chase Edgar down he will crank his neck until he screams like a b’tch

  37. slacker says:

    This fight will be decided in the clinch. Maynard couldn’t take Edgar down, so the question is: Is Henderson stronger than Maynard? I am saying no. Edgar keeps this standing and wins. There is no way in hell Henderson outstrikes Edgar.

  38. MARV3L0US says:

    Tough fight I’m not sure either franky by tko or ben by sub or dec.
