I don't know why but this fight is getting very little press. But it is a very intriguing fight and should be a very competitive entertaining fight to watch.

I like Herrera here. Regardless of who he fights, he is always in the fight. He has faced top level fighters and has much more experience than Benavidez. I think Herrera's experience, skills and awkward style will be a little too much for Benavidez.

That said, I like Benavidez a lot and think regardless of the outcome he will be a better fighter after this fight. Yes he may lose but he will have a bright career and will be a future champ. Its one of those type fights that even a loss won't hurt his career because the experience he will gain facing someone like Herrera will only help him down the line.
