Former Champ Edgar Believes Nate Diaz Matches Up Well With Benson Henderson | UFC NEWS


“I don’t think he’s going to have a choice with Nate. Nate comes forward. I think that’s just going to be what he has to deal with. Nate’s going to come after you. He’s going to throw a lot, a lot of punches and he’s going to try to get you to take a bad shot and try to snag up a submission that way. I just think that Nate comes forward so much. I don’t know how Ben will deal with that. Nate’s length — he’s got great, great jiu-jitsu. I feel the wrestling edge will probably go to Ben, but if you look at Nate’s last performances, he’s gotten so good everywhere. He fought Jim Miller, and Jim Miller couldn’t take him down. Jim Miller’s a pretty high-level wrestler too. I think Nate’s definitely a great matchup for Ben.”

In a recent interview with sherdog.com, former UFC lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar, discusses the upcoming title fight between Nate Diaz and Benson Henderson.

It’s a bit early to start casting predictions for the bout scheduled for Dec. 8, but who ya got?
