Edgar: Diaz will be hard for Henderson to deal with

by Brendhan Conlan | source: fiveouncesofpain.com

“If Nate would need my help or would ask for my help, I would love to help him out. We got some work in last time that was really good. If I could help him out, of course I would,” said Edgar in an interview on Sherdog Radio.

As far as how he sees the bout unfolding given his knowledge of both parties, Edgar stopped short of making an actual pick but acknowledged the challenge Henderson is in for later this year.

“I just think that Nate comes forward so much, I don’t know how Ben will deal with that…Nate’s length,” stated Edgar, adding, “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 match-up for Ben.”

Nate's gameplan will be to drop him with punches then sink in a choke. Might have to apply a double or even a triple submission just to make sure.

 Nate will lose this title fight to Bendo imo ....... Nate is definitely at a disadvantage right across the board and I neve buy into the Zuffa hype machine. This fight will go the distance with Bendo wining by UD.

Bendo seems to think he's a striker now for some reason. If he remembers he can wrestle he can win. But i honestly dont know wtf will happen.

Nate's trash talking is one of his best attributes imo. He was able to take Cowboy completely out of his game. He utilizes the trash talking way better than his brother. Nick does it out of frustration. Nate utilizes it more smartly imo.I believe Nate will win this fight. He has improved immensely with his last three fights, and strikes me as more disciplined than his brother.
