I will somewhat agree, I actually don't think Nate is that big of a douchebag he simply never grew out of emulating his brother, unfortunately his is a douchebag.

Yes he's very respectful seeing as how he's taunting him and talking smack in between rounds

Are people watching the same fight?

Nate's doing worse than even I expected, and considering I expected him to lose 4 rounds...that's pretty significant.

It's a fight. He's always like that during the fight and even before it. It's not in his nature to be nice to someone before and while he is fighting them.

After the fight is over Nate is generally respectful towards his opponents.

That's always been a 'Diaz' strategy. They goad opponents. And it has proven successful in the past.

Go watch/read some actual interviews from Nate Diaz and get back to me

Edit - Raising Henderson's hand and giving him the thumbs up... yeah, what a dick.

I can't believe people thought Diaz would win.

Benson chewed him up.

With so much octagon time to use as a reference. I don't think I've ever been able to make such an accurate prediction of how exactly a fight was going to go.

Neither fighter is any different then the last time we've seen them...

At least Ben finally wins a title fight in the UFC that won't be controversial.

Not a mark on Benson, he's not breathing heavy, no sweat.

Later, Diaz.

The only good thing about this is Ben Henderson's gonna be on Pettis' highlight reel twice.
