The sad part is, Diaz is so ******* retarded he'll probably still do the same thing in his next fight.

That was a hard fight to watch as a Diaz fan. Actually, the card as a whole was hard for me. Entertaining fights, but my favorites got tooled. Anyone think Phan could drop a weight class? He was so undersized against Siver. I give him credit though for being so tough and going the distance.

Even though I was hoping Diaz would win, I was very impressed with Henderson's performance. He seemed to dominate everywhere. I've been slowly turning into a fan of his. The guy is very well rounded and is just a beast. I can't wait to see him have a rematch against Pettis in the future.

Not really a Diaz fan & I was expecting this to happen, still sad tho, mostly because Bendo is one of the most annoying ppl in the UFC.

Benson is a horrible matchup for Nate, kicks and wrestling, didn't look good for Diaz. It could have been overcome, The Diaz brothers can win bad matchups due to toughness & cardio, problem here was Benson has excellent cardio as well.

If the fight between Nick and GSP ever happens this is exactly what I think will happen. GSP would use his athleticism, strength, speed & wrestling to bully Nick, and when at distance just kick the crap out of him.

Yeah that's what I was thinking as well while watching this fight, this is a mini version of what will happen if Nick and GSP face off. Granted it wouldn't be as much of a one sided beating because Bendo seems to mix it up more than GSP does and Nick's the somewhat better fighter of the brothers (close though). The only thing that might be slightly different is that GSP goes into the guard more, so we'll see if Nick can catch him with something.

Weird, what feed was that? They didn't cut away from anything when I was watching - saw that realtime. (CTV Sportsnet, in Canada)

I agree with the others who said this is basically what Diaz-GSP will look like.

new breed all the way isnt it

athletic skilled guys always beating less athletic skilled guys as you would expect

henderson, rory, jones - i guess gsp was ahead of his time

disappointing as a diaz fan but a new era and benson showed it. now it looks like he has some breathing space, especially if he fights and beats pettis

This cut the beginning off, but still fun to watch.


RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Incredible how Benson outclassed Diaz in every area and still had to get all that hair out of the way all the time. Can you imagine the benefit in his timing and awareness without all that hair in the way to worry about?

The way Bendo set this up was brilliant. I have never seen anyone punch another dudes legs outside of the clinch. You can even see that Nate strikes down to where Bendo would have been if he went after the thigh/knee again.

I think the real lesson we learned here is when you depend on your front leg for so much of your striking you need to learn to check kicks. Bendo must have chopped his leg out from under him a dozen times throughout the fight.

Nate deserves credit for never stopping though. The doc even gave him the option when his eye was swelling bad but he went out and tried to win even at the end. I thought the fight would be a lot closer than that, but styles makes fights and Bendo has the right style to counter Diaz perfectly.
