Michai - Strange No mention of gsp's record so far since he's the closest. Not mention the dude hasn't given up a round in forever. In many ways that's just as difficult. Phone Post
He lost rounds to Condit and Shields, before that it was a long time though. Phone Post

I think Maynard or Pettis will beat him. Gil has a good shot, too.

Also, he got a gift victory over Edgar. He will never be in the stratosphere of Silva's record...

Agreed, in particular, I think Maynard takes Benson Handily.

Bisping KOd by CHRIST - Lol no. If lw was the weakest divi, had a ton of 1 dimensional dropouts like mw and he had the ability to turn down and/or cherry pick contenders, then yes....easily. But the quality of opponents at lw is far too high to pull that shit.
Your a fucking idiot Phone Post

No. The # of A-listers in the LW division are FAR greater than the # of A-listers in MW.  MW is the weakest division, LW the deepest division ever

^^^ still won't be easy. I don't know if Bendo will beat the record, it's too early to tell... And too many good fighters. Phone Post

Kind of silly to talk about this when it's a few years away. Were he at 8 defenses, then that's a different story. Plus he has the unavenged loss to Pettis. Personally, I thought he did enough to win that first fight, but that's not what the records say. So, avenge the loss and stop talking about this for a few years.

MasterofMartialArts -  Why does everybody act like Showtime gets a guaranteed win if they fight again? Did y'all see the first fight? It was fucking CLOSE. Great fight. If they fight again it will be another great fight. Benson has improved alot since that fight, and Pettis has looked good. I compare Benson to GSP in a sense that he is always training insanely and training new techniques, coming better and stronger every time out. Hes gonna be tough to beat, he will come with a gameplan. But to say Benson "knows" that Pettis will come and take the belt is ridiculous. GTFO. Phone Post

I don't get the people saying Pettis steam rolls him in a rematch either. That first fight was EXTREMELY close both guys have improved so it really comes down to who has improved more.

Could he? Sure anything is possible. But will he? I seriously doubt it. The LW belt hasn't been defended more than 3 times ever. Let him worry about #3 and 4 first before we even discuss the chance of 11+.

If I remember correctly he said he wanted to do this when he first won the belt, why would it change now after a few defenses,this isn't new news.

Y2JB - Zero UFC finishes and doesn't have a highlight reel. Can i get an amen?

When will people appreciate there is more to MMA and fighting than just how many finishes a guy has. HIs fights are exciting and he is always working.
