I can't see who wouldn't see Benson winning in every area.

As I astutely pointed out before the fight, Diaz's ONLY chance was in a scramble.

And considering Benson's flexibility and history of sub defense, it was a long shot.

What a showing from Henderson.
He's earned my respect, at least as far as a champion goes.

Kudos to Nate for not being a prick after the fight and giving Ben his respect. I'll be rooting for him from here on out, but he looked bad tonight. Henderson completely outclassed and dominated him in every aspect of the fight.

EDIT: **** off with your christ Bendo. He's not real.

No it doesn't.

Edgar is a bad style matchup for Henderson.

His size is a benefit as he's so much quicker than the guys he's fighting and he's so technical with his wrestling that guys are forced into his leap amateur boxing game.


The reason he was so adamant about staying at 155 is because he knows that if he can take guy's power he actually benefit from it.

He might actually be worse at 145.

That actually makes me happy because it really needs to happen more often. There's 10 points to choose from, but judges limit themselves to 2 options 99% of the time. Ridic.

Also, piss off with that fairy tale crap, Bendo. You're great despite that fluff.

Henderson was just prepared for Nate at the highest level. Usually Bendo gets in at least two or three tricky submission positions in his fights, but he really didn't do that with Nate. Kept his distance with movement and leg kicks, then closed and smothered. Ultra disciplined fight from him, plus a core torso and arm strength that Nate just couldn't overcome.

I really didn't expect that one sided of an ass kicking. Wow, credit to Bendo!

Bendo gets tolerable, then brings up christ....why does he have to ruin a perfectly good moment?

great defense by Bendo, solid, almost flawless.
