Dana White: Nate Diaz fights Henderson vs. Edgar winner

by Geno Mrosko | source: mmamania.com

UFC President Dana White told FUEL TV in an interview after the weigh-ins that the there's one guy fighting for the title after this one and his name isn't Henderson or Edgar.

"Nate Diaz will fight the winner," he said.

Diaz was promised a title shot after he impressively laid waste to Jim Miller in the main event of the UFC on Fox 3 event back on May 5 in New Jersey. Perhaps that's part of the reason White is so steadfast in his getting the next crack at the crown.

Still, these are welcome comments from White if only because it means saving fight fans from yet another rematch atop the 155-pound division featuring Frankie Edgar.

IMO you're not going to see anybody Cerrone themselves against Nick or Nate again. Carlos showed everybody how to fight the Diaz brothers. Donald showed everybody how not to fight the Diaz brothers.They're too flat footed and too straight forward. Benson will smash Nate's legs for a couple rounds and he'll win it with footwork. I think Frankie would win too, a decision that people would bitch about. Even with the 8" Nate has over him, he's got the footwork to do it.

and I think Frankie is simply too short to hang with Nate.

If Nate/Bendo happens real soon, i think that's bad for bendo.something tells me Bendo just may stand too long with Nate and end up in the torture chamber.Nate might be a step ahead and make bendo not look so good...like bendo/pettis.he needs alot of time to prepare for Nate imo to make it the battle we all expect.

Can Dana handle a guy getting a title shot off a three fight win streak?  That is two more than he usually likes.

Wouldnt do anything, Bendo would retain the title and he woudl have a win and a draw over Edgar, he would move on to fight the next guy.A draw wouldnt demand a rematch, Edgar winning isnt gonna demand a rematch.

Nate deserves it! I'm happy to see him get his shot. He has looked amazing at LW since dropping down.Beats Bendo and/or Frankie.

I thought nate said he wouldn't fight Frankie, cuz of the whole him training with renzo thing?
