Thats not exactly an apples to apples comparison. JDS was able to land the big show early in that fight, but I think we can all agree vthat if he does not then that fight may go a lot different. All that fight proved is that JDS can KO cain with one punch, but does it really prove he is the better figjhter? Im not so sure.

Nate set a record for landed punches against Cerrone and clearly showed he was the better fighter.

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

Nate isn't beating Bendo; the two areas he is strongest in kicking and wrestling are the two biggest weaknesses for the Diaz style of fighting.

To quote the OP article:

Current UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson is headed for a match up with Nate Diaz for the belt. An exact date and location for either 155-pound fights is currently unknown.

This is a good point. Depending on Bendos gameplan he could beat Nate. He has to take the fight down, but Nate has great BJJ so he has to defend the sub, but we all know Bendo is great at sub defense.

GSP

Nate is already going to face the Bendo(ver) guy.

Cerone has to wait, or I wish he goes for Pettis.

Not a huge Cerrone fan. But I think he beats Pettis. Pettis is a lot of flash.

I think all of these guys could beat any on a given night. That is why LW is pretty good right now. I'm hoping Nate can bring home the belt vs. Bendo. He has already lit up Cerrone.

Diaz vs. Bendo could go many ways. Bendo will probably use kicks and wrestling. Which is the right formula to beat Diaz. I'm just hoping Diaz can pull off one of his triangles again. I think Bendo's sub D is overrated. If he gets in deep vs. a true BJJ specialist he won't get out.

The formula to beating a Diaz is making it a boring point fighting contest. I hope Bendo chooses to make it fight.

Actually I overlooked that. Forgot they were fighting...haha!

But I think Bendo is gonna pull a Clay Guida on Diaz. If Diaz won and Cerrone did as well...I'm gonna LOL so hard.
