Ben is right up there with Maynard as biggest LW behind Tibau who walks around at 190. It's no secret he's a big dude and making 155 isn't exactly paradise for him.

This fight is going to be crazy. I'm hoping Diaz worked on his TDD. Bendo has freakish sub defense, power, great kicks and wrestling.

Diaz has slick boxing, BJJ and cardio for days. Such a hard pick, but I'm thinking Diaz might have this fight!

He better take his own advice though; "Benson might be a better point fighter to win rounds, but I'm the better fighter"

If Diaz keeps this standing and doesn't let Henderson steal rounds with late take downs, he'll be the new Champ.

Bendo will beat Nate

Ben Henderson will kick Diaz silly and take him off his game.
Bendo will overpower Nate outwrestle him and most likely pound him out later in the fight!!!!!!!!

Bendo wins still champ and fights winner of Pettis vs Cerrone!!!

Yeah, this is my big problem with this fight as well. Nate looks unstoppable as of late, but with Bendo using leg kicks to stay on the outside he is going to have a problem beating him on the feet. On the ground while Bendo is legit, Nate has proven over and over again that he will submit you.

I just don't want this to be boring.

Cerrone didn't follow Nate into his guard and mostly used them for trips, Ben might since he's never been subbed in the UFC or WEC.

I do think Cerrone could beat Nate in a rematch though.

Think you will find its 175, Henderson was asked on twitter.

Also his coach said this a while back.

Quote:
John Crouch: You know, the truth is that Ben's size is exaggerated. He's not by any stretch a huge lightweight. Does he have huge legs? Yeah, he's got huge legs, but he walks around at 175. I have two lightweights in my gym that are heavier than Ben. I have '45-ers that walk around the same size as Ben does. God bless Joe Rogan, I love him, but Ben is not huge. It's not really ever too hard of a weight cut. That being said, he adjusts his diet and he makes sure he takes care of his nutrition. He did a great job with this camp. I wouldn't say this weight cut was any easier or harder than any other one.

He's missed weight on his initial tries because he's a half pound over but that's just because he doesn't like to be under. He was actually when he got off the scale, he looked at me and told me how mad he was that he was under by .6 pounds because "that's a half bottle of water I could have had right there." He'd like to tough that 155 mark the second he steps off the scale and the second he steps off, he wants to be at 160, you know what I mean? It was a pretty easy weight cut, but they're all like that with Ben. he's pretty disciplined and it was pretty much the same.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

175 isn't big for a LW? Jesus Christ.
