Current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion was a guest on Fuel TV's UFC Insider last night, where he talked about the big moments in his career which led up to his becoming champion this past February in Saitama, Japan.

From his humble WEC beginnings against knockout artist Anthony Njokuani to his first WEC interim title against Donald Cerrone to his thrilling number one contender's match against Clay Guida at the first ever UFC on Fox event, "Bendo" shares his thoughts and feelings on every key moment.

Of course not everything was touched upon. Is there anything you'd have liked to see him discuss?

The MMA Lab trained fighter is slated to defend his belt for the first time this Saturday night (August 11, 2012) in a rematch against former champion Frankie Edgar at UFC 150. How do you like his odds of defending the belt?

Check out the video posted after the jump.
