The more I think about it, the more I take Diaz. I just think he is the better fighter outside of Bendo's kicks.

But some times being the better fighter doesn't get you the win in this sport.

That said, Bendo definitely isn't the lay and pray type, he's always involved in crazy scrambles and working hard on the ground with GNP, so I doubt he'll look to pull a Stun Gun on Diaz, but then again, there was Condit vs Diaz, so any thing is possible.

Condit and Diaz were pretty evenly matched - if you want the poster boy for anything can happen go for Matt Sera.

I didn't mean any thing can happen in a shock upset sense. I mean it in the sense that a killer like Carlos Condit would completely abandon the natural fighting instincts he has used for so many years in favour of a cheap way to out point his opponent.

Even a slugger like Condit abandoned the stuff which made him the great fighter he is in the first place to win as safely as possible.

So what I mean is, I'm expecting Bendo to be active with ground and pound, guard passes etc on the ground and to really go out there and fight, but I wouldn't be shocked if he played the points game and looked to hold Diaz down in guard as best as he could.

I will pick Bendo via leg kicks from distance, movement, and TD's.

He will be huge compared to Diaz, and I suspect will be able to combine a little technique and a lot of muscle to get himself out of sub trouble.

I also predict a lot of people will bitch about how boring the fight was.

This is definitely FOTN material. I think Diaz takes this and I'm rooting big time for him as well.

I honestly don't know.

The only way I see Henderson winning is by decision.
The only way I see Diaz winning is by a finish.

I can't see Diaz finishing Henderson, but I can't see Henderson grinding down Diaz for 25 minutes either.

He'll try the Condit gameplan, try and keep it in the center of the cage he's a big guy for Lightweight and has good kicks and cardio so he can keep resetting for five rounds.

I don't think he's mentally strong enough to stick to it though, the Edgar rematch showed that he can get too emotionally involved. I believe when Nate goes to telling him he's a bitch and he ain't shit that's when he'll fly off the handle and begin to get boxed up and/or choked out.

I didn't watch a lot of the WEC, regrettably, so my intruction to that group of fighters has come mostly through their fights in the UFC since they merged, minus some highlights of course. I actually really wanted to be a fan of Benson's, but the guy just comes across as so smug to me in all of his interviews. I'm also a big Frankie fan and I don't think he won the second fight. I actually don't have a problem with the way the Diaz brothers handle themselves, and they are gritty tough fighters... my fanfare and my prediction here are with Nate... I think he'll be the first to sub Henderson, and it will happen in 4 or 5.
