At the end of every round, Benson likes to throw his damn hands up in the air and have us all worship his dominance. He did it twice to Frankie and then again to Gilbert swaying the opinion of the judges. Fortunately, its Showtime and a new king will be crowned via KO. War Pettis!

Lol well against Frankie he seemed to land a few good blows or a takedown and to end the rounds, one frankie was caught in a guillotine to end it, but my memory isn't the best, it very well could just be the arm flailing you mentioned :) Phone Post 3.0

I'm a huge Pettis fan and an even bigger Frankie fan. I'll still never get over those losses. Especially the 2nd one. And wow at the people who can't recognize a joke.

And is all the Bendo love directly related to the Jesusin' he does or do you all seriously find his fights entertaining? I ask this in all seriousness. He hasn't finished a fight since 2010 and has some crazy superstitious toothpick. Help me understand.

You seriously haven't found his fights entertaining? He's had two slower fights, each of them fought at the pace Melendez and Edgar prefer.

If you didn't find his performance against Diaz, Guida, Edgar 1, Miller, or Pettis entertaining I'm not really sure what to tell you. Some people enjoy watching really good fights, not just violent finishes.

Finishes just flat out don't happen very often when elite lightweights fight each other. Phone Post

Never meant to imply that he hasn't had entertaining fights. But the criticism is always there when a fighter who is at the top rattles off a string of decisions....was there with GSP, and I feel the same way you do. But then I see a guy like Anderson and how he goes for the win every time out. Its an old point of debate.

I asked the question (half-tongue in cheek) because despite the criticisms, he has rabid supporters and I just find him, for lack of a better description, to be kind of a cheeseball. That's all.

And the argument that he only fights the cream of the crop and tha'ts why he doesn't get the finish is thin. Again, champs like Aldo, Silva, Valasquez prove that one moot. Does Benson play it safe most of the time though??

Cerrone and Varner are not on pace with Edgar, Melendez and Pettis. I'm not saying Ben shouldn't be talked about with these 3 as I think Ben, Edgar, Pettis and Gil are the top 4 lw's in the world but Ben is at the bottom of that list.
As for his excitement value, hell yes he is exciting. Even if he isn't going for the finish he is always in a fast paced fight constantly striking, looking for takedowns. He is active on the ground but I don't think he is really looking for the finish and that's fine to me but when you are not looking to finish don't be surprised when people say well he really didn't beat this guy or he was gifted this decision.
You want to be talked about like Anderson was when he was champ? Then finish the competition make it look like they have no business in there with you.
