If he keeps believing that he will.

He has never been in deep vs. a guy like Nate.

Bendo puts himself into too many bad spots, Nate is a finisher unlike Guida and whoever else this amazing sub D went against in the past.

Agreed. If Nate locks something in that's it.

I think Nate will take this impressively. Could be a real war, Bendo is powerful and can fight all night... I just think that Diaz will hurt him on the feet and outclass him on the ground, creating an opportunity to finish before the Championship rounds.

i actually like nate, he appears to be less of a douche than his brother.

saying that bendo is a beast, i cant see bendo finishing nate but i can see nate finishing bendo given the opportunity. i give it slightly in favour of nate but never ruling out the beast

Bendo's wrestling is overrated imo. He get's into a lot of scrambles and I think that's a no no against Nate. My prediction is that Bendo will try to use his wrestling, get in a scramble and fall right into a guillotine then put to sleep.

Very tough fight to call, I'm split 50/50 on this one. Hard to picture how these two will match up. I'm picking Nate because I want him to win and I would love to see a Diaz brother with a title belt. I'm expecting Nate's all around game and cardio to be the difference, I think hes got the edge in the stand up and on the ground, Hendersons got the strength and more diversity to his game but I think it'll be Nate's night.

I can't ******* wait for this one. I'd put my money on Nate. I hope Bendo gets choked out

I really really really hope Diaz beats the living shit out of Henderson but I predict a war with Henderson winning a close decision.

I think Nate is more technical but Bendo is way to strong for a skinny guy like Diaz just like Rory was.

Ben's top game vs Nate's guard will decide this fight IMO. I don't think Ben's going to get Nate to back up or keep him on the black line. Every time Nate comes forward and has Ben backing up I feel Ben will take him down with relative ease.

If we get some good judging it may go in the way of Bendo getting lit up on the feet and having to get a TD. But doing nothing too much with it while Nate s attempting subs. And Nate winning.

But they will still score that type of fight for Bendo. Because he is on top. Nate's striking seminar Bendo attends won't mean more than Bendo on top for a couple minutes, in the judges eyes anyway
