he just might though.before its all said and done i think he will get one more crack at it.he has a excellent shit at going on another 4 fight win streak.he is like faber but the class down. on another note i think dj is just unfuckwiable at the moment.and i still think he's givvig cruz the best fight since cruz has been wec champ.and mouse was not nearly as gd then as he is now.if he wins 3 more straight i can see him wanting to challenge for the 135 belt again.

Lol wasn't making an excuse for him. I was actually rooting for Mighty Mouse in that fight. I just think Benavidez should move up to 135 cuz his face looked sunken in. Besides, he won't get another title shot at 125.

you are a idiot but everyone knows this already...probably was refereeing to other fighters not named dj or jd. obviously dj can beat him you stooge.but him and jd are probably the only 2 that can at that weight.damn you're dumb.

Probably?  DJ already beat him twice.  Did you miss that that is why this thread was created?

he looked like that since drooping to 125. and he has done to every one what was just done to him in that weight and jd are the only 2 that can prob beat him at 125.

Both guys are very talented. MM is just a bit more athletic. His stand up seems a little more fluid and natural. Tough loss for Benavidez, but he going to have to accept the fact that he isn't on MM's level. Dodson is the only guy at 125 I think has a shot at MM. He is even more athletic than MM(if that's possible) and is the only guy who can match MM in speed. The difference is MM has developed his skills just slightly more than Dodson. I'd like to see them rematch. And I haven't forgotten Uncle Creepy. I honestly thought he beat MM in their first fight. I'm not sure what happened in the rematch. Either MM figured out some weaknesses of Creepy , or Creepy just didn't perform like he did in their first fight.

Hard not to root for the guy, he keeps getting better, very humble, family man, respectful. Everything you look for in a champ.
