I wonder if Nate brings in Frankie for the fight, seeing as he has shared the cage with him for 50 minutes.

I would love to see that fight. Frankie would have a clear wrestling advantage but I'd love to see the 2 guys box it out.

Awesome, thanks! Definitely clears that up. I would still like to see the Frankie vs Diaz fight though. I think the Diaz attitude plus Frankie's never back down attitude would make one hell of a good fight.

Henderson falls in the same cathegory.

I give Diaz the advantage in the striking department...but at the end of the day he is no Frankie Edgar, even though his boxing is top notch, he doesn't have the speed that Frankie has, and that was what caused Henderson a lot of problems in his fight against Frankie.

If Henderson is smart, he will take it to the ground and try to use heavy GnP, similar to Rory.

Either way, should be a good fight.

My money is on Henderson.
Wasn't everyone saying that Jim Millers wrestling was going to best Diaz?

Weren't people saying the cowboys kicks and more well rounded striking was going to best Nate?

Neither happened.

Unless Bendo wants to play tag and run, which I'm confident he won't, he loses this fight 9/10.

I don't think fans can appreciate just how impressive his dominant victories over Jim Miller and Donald Cerrone were.

Submitting and dominating Miller like that was incredibly impressive and really shown the evolution of Nates elite, world class grappling game.

The cowboy is one of the best strikers in the LW division and Nate absolutely steam rolled him.

Bendo had struggled with Cerrone in the first fight (a fight quite a few people think cowboy won) and had a gruelling fight with Jim Miller, where Nate made light work of him and finished him in the second round.

I admire both fighters, but I'm a Diaz fan through and through. He's taking that belt.

Not a great matchup for Diaz but I'm still hoping he pulls out the W. There's something about Henderson's attitude that rubs me the wrong way and find myself rooting for a Diaz which I didn't think would happen either.

Don't know what fight you were watching, but Miller had nothing for Henderson, he got his face punched in for 3 rounds.

He had plenty of near submission attempts on Bendo throughout the fight. Bendo won impressively, but it wasn't just a walk in the park for him.

Does Bendo vs Cerrone 2 suddenly make the first fight irrelevant? No.

Henderson hardly rag dolled him. Any time he took Miller down he had to fend off a leg lock for a good while.

Like I said, it was a good performance, but a tough fight against a tough fighter in Miller.

Diaz made Miller look like he was in a league below him, completely out classed. The same with Cerrone.

Most anticipated fight for me in awhile. I like both fighters a lot, but I'm rooting for Nate by a small margin.
