There's a couple parts to it. Benson is damn strong and also has explosive power and speed along with surprising flexibility. If you're going to sub him, you need to lock it in hard & fast and rip the limb off the way Palhares or Frank Mir do it. If you give him time he's going to power out of it and pop free. Nate has good BJJ, no question about that, but it's just not the right style to work against Benson.

Incredible how ppl can worship a low life disrespectiful brawler and be intolerant for someone for bringing up his faith in Christ. In a second thought, no, not that incredible.

The Diaz brothers usually dismantle anyone who brawls or tries to outstrike em. They always lose to strong wrestlers who control them. Not a big fan of Bendo, but it is what it is.

+ They are also starting to lose to guys who kick them. You can't have a boxing stance in MMA, it's horrible for balance and will be targeted by any fighter with common sense.

Shit, Nate basically got taken down by a punch to the thigh.

How about the shit advice we heard the corners giving today.
Basically, 'you got to try harder and punch him more'.

Nate should have tried to switch his stance at least.

Ariel just tweeted that John Crouch ( Ben's coach ) gave Ben the toothpick right after the fight. Ben did not fight with the toothpick in his mouth.

Did we make a bent on Rory vs BJ or Bendo vs Diaz...on the zippy chat.

I'm a little buzzed...so memory is fuzzy.
