“I think the first two Frankie fights, the first one was close and everyone was hoping the second wouldn’t be as close and would be more decisive but, sadly the second one was even closer than the first one. It is what it is. But, as far as me facing Nate, and how I gotta win against Nate, I’m just trying to get the ‘W.’ I’m trying to get my hand raised however I can get it. If he slips on a banana peel, I’ll take it. If it’s a decisive victory, I’ll take it even closer, razor thin decision, even closer than the second Frankie fight, I’ll take that too. Getting the ‘W’ is not easy to come by in the UFC going against the best guys, literally, on the planet. I’ll take it any way I can get it. That being said, all the fighters on the line, we all fight to end fights and to have to be as decisive as possible. But, sometimes, when you’re fighting the best guys on the planet, you can’t make it as easy as that. You can’t make it a decisive bout because the guys your fighting it’s almost offensive to say, ‘Oh, yeah, I’m going to go in there and I’m going to knock out Nate Diaz, no problem.’ No, I’m not going to say that. Nate Diaz is tough, he’s darn tough and I’ll try to get my hand raised anyway possible.”
UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson told the media on yesterday’s UFC on FOX 5 media conference call that he will take a win against Nate Diaz anyway he can get it.
