UFC brass may have Henderson saving yet another Fight Night card on short notice. Talk about a company man and burgeoning fan favorite!

Props to Bendo, the prospect killer.

UFC should've protected Erick a little better IMO. They could've made him into a star

Benson has some balls but just like with Cerrone it's bound to catch up with you. Once again he won't have a ton of time to put on weight throughout a full camp. I think this should be an epic fight but Erik will probably knock him out.

I like Bendo's attitude. It worked out well for him last time against another dangerous guy.

This should be new Co-Main.

Props to Bendo again. But I really hope Silva destroys him. If he doesn't do it inside of 1/ 1 1/2 rounds Bendo will most likely be the one finishing this fight.

The only thing I don't like about my boy Silva is his cardio issues. He'd be a legit Top 10 if he could work on that. At the highest level you can't always expect to beat everyone in the 1st. Dudes got the skills just that damn cardio needs some work.

Erick Silva/ Matt Brown was probably the most exciting 1st Round that I've seen Live.

See if ufc signs this fight or not.

Props for benson.

I still think silva is either off the card or some newbie fills in.

Hell when punk went out they have over 100 lightweights on roster and they still signed a newbie

Silva just got a tougher opponent. I don't think it's a good match up for him.

Bendo the killer of overhyped WW prospects.

Benson should be the highest paid fighter in the UFC. He is always there to bail them out. Silva will lose.

Similar match up to Henderson vs. Thatch.

I think Henderson would finish Silva late once he gasses.

I totally agree that Bendo should catch him in the 3rd with a sub. Silva has issues with well-known fighters. If you look at his record, he beats a mid-low tier guy then loses to a upper mid-top tier guy and then fights another mid-low tier guy and wins. Silva, seems to be one of those fighters, that is doomed to swim in the goldfish pond instead of eating with the sharks. Props to Bendo for once again raising his hand.

It's bizarre to think of all the guys the UFC has protected and those they have thrown to the wolves. I doubt McGreggor will ever fight a wrestler.

I will probably pick Silva like I always do regardless of his tendency to crumple after rd 1
