No Diaz missed weight by .6, so 155.6, and then seemed shocked when Dana told him he had to lose.

He made it eventually, though, according to mmajunkie so at least he's not Martinez:

Diaz was given two hours to cut 0.6 pounds; he hit 155.2 on his second try, then made 155 on his third attempt.

Really tough fight to pick for me.

Nate has looked very impressive since he has came back to 155 pounds. But I've never really thought Jim Miller was anything special, merely a plodder with a good ground game and Nate dispatched him like he should have. He outstruck Donald Cerrone when there was no threat of a TD.

And Henderson is coming off 50 minutes with Frankie Edgar which is impossible to look good in and then you throw in the fact he lost 1 possibly both of these fights.

I'll go with Henderson SD. But would prefer Nate to win.

Daaayam Nate is a big light weight.

I expect Henderson to out perform for as long as his cardio holds out.

I'm not a huge fan of either guy. I'd like to see Nate win only if BJ will come back and take the belt away from him.

Nate Diaz is taking the belt. He's going to be too relentless, too dangerous on the ground, just too good for Benson Henderson. Benson shouldn't even have the belt anyway, Frankie won the re-match, but that's not the point. Benson's got the belt now, and Nate's ready to take it. War Nate Diaz, so excited for this card!

Why is that anyway? The whole point of a 1 pound limit is because the scales may show different things, doesn't make any sense for not having the same on title fights.

So, Braziian fists to the face make ppl mad, hum? What about Nate Diaz fists? Gosh, and the guy didn't even make weight, what could have detonated the evening for the UFC. So full of sh!it. A detestable character just like his brother. Clearly on the other side of the moon if compared to the face off between Denis Siver and Nam Phan or Shogun vs Gustaffson.

Well, this near miss certainly makes another dent to the "high professional level" of these guys and their camp.

It will be a war anyway. No predictions, but you all know who I am rooting less for.
