VIDEO | Diaz Will Batter Henderson On The Feet And Submit Him In the Third, Says Cesar Gracie | UFC NEWS

“Nate’s a monster. He’s training … I’ll tell you what, that kid, I think he’s most improved fighter of the year. He looks good and he’s solid. I think he’s gonna win. A fight’s a fight, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. I think he’s got all the skills to win this fight. If I was to make a prediction there’s so many avenues because he’s so good on the ground and he’s so good standing. I’m thinking probably submission. I’ll give it third or fourth round after he batters him standing.”

    I agree Nate is by far the most improved fighter in the UFC, I Also believe Nate will finish Ben.

  2. BendoISOverrated says:

    He’s right. bendo doesn’t have anything for Nate. Frankly, I liked Bendo at first but I think his last fight was straight embarrassing. Not even because he was gifted a decision, I don’t really even agree with that, it’s just that he just sat back and didn’t do shit the whole fight. It’s a joke, he’s letting Edgar, a guy with no punching power dance around the ring for 5 rounds. He should’ve put him away in the first round and instead he just sat around and got lucky that the decision went his way. Nate is a monster, he’ll beat the shit out of Bendo on the feet and if Bendo takes it to the ground he’s getting submitted. Then Cerrone’s gonna beat the shit out of Pettis, and there’ll be a great rematch in the making. Plus Joe Lauzon’s in the mix

      You must have had your beer goggles on. That fight wasn’t close, and Edgar definitely did not win that fight. As for Nate vs Benson, hopefully Nate has worked on his strength. He got man handled by a bigger and stronger Rory Macdonald, I can see him running into the same with Henderson. Subs won’t work. BJJ black belts haven’t been able to submit Henderson in 5 years. He’s never been TKO’d or KO’d. It’ll be a fun fight to watch for sure. But I’m giving to Bendo by decision. Both guys will press, no ine will be running away from anyone. It’ll be close, but it will be a fight.

  3. I GET MONEY says:

    Nate is the most exiting LW since The Greatest LW BJ PENN. These guys come to fight. Nate will batter Bendo bad and SUB him. Judges robbed him vs Maynard and Guida. If he beats Bendo he has vert few OPTIONS. Bendo Rematch, Maynard, Pettis, and maybe Barboza in the future. Beating Miller and Cerrone nate kind of swept the division.

  4. PeoplesChamp says:

    Guitione is his only chance, Ben by decision or submission.

  5. 123 says:

    i see it being like ben henderson vs donald cerrone.. ben will be too strong & will hold him down.. hope nate diaz wins tho.

  6. Josiah says:

    leg kicks all day by ben…

  7. Josiah says:

    there is definitely no way nate can TD ben, unless he pulls guard and risk being GnP’d..if this is going to be a stand up fight there is also no way bens gonna brawl with nate..bens just gonna run around the cage, hit nate with a couple of combinations and move..bens gonna by a conditdecision victory…

    123 , Josiah
    Did you see Diaz vs cerrone the were leg kicks there quite a few but Diaz beat the shit out of cerrone in every aspect
    Diaz is coming with the 300 punches he always throws and slick jits that made miller bite his tongue
    What does bendo bring to the shitty in exciting decisions
    Diaz alll day

    • Josiah says:

      don’t get me wrong man..i like diaz and f*ck’n hate bendo,coz he shouldn’t be the champ in the first place… but, if you’re gonna base it on their performances, bendo’s karate stance allows him to throw those leg kicks effectively and his wrestling makes him very difficult to TD specially with a guy with no wrestling background like diaz. the way i see it, diaz’ boxing might be neutralized by bendo’s footwork. somehow bendo has this ability to look good in the judges eyes which is fully tested on his last two fights…

  9. the wage says:

    *Bring to the table shitty un exciting shitty decisions

  10. CombatRusse says:

    I really don’t know what to expect from this fight.
    Henderson may implement a lay and pray strategie. (And he can’t be submitted easily)
    But then I rembember how Diaz destroyed Cowboy (who was very competetive in his fights with Henderson)
    Anyway, the LW division is the most open one (until BJ comes back lol)
