"Every time a fighter does what they're supposed to do, and improves and gets better every fight, I wouldn't say the blueprint goes out the window, but it can be harder to execute the blueprint," Henderson steadily explains. "Guys leave holes open in their game. Those holes get smaller if you do what you're supposed to do and get better from fight to fight. Nate Diaz has shown a big improvement from his early years in the UFC and he's made those holes a lot smaller, but I think the blueprint is definitely still out there on how to beat Nate. It's not just, ‘Oh, we think you've got to do this. We think you've got to do this.' No, if you want to beat him, you've got to do A, B, C, and D. And then you beat him. Period. You're done."

Of course, the most notorious aspect of that blueprint is also the biggest boon to the Diaz brothers' mystique. The insults, the wild in-fight taunting and flipping of the bird across the cage; while some see it as unprofessional, it's hard to argue with its effectiveness. Just ask Cerrone, who admits Diaz buried deep into his head before the two could ever even lace up their gloves. "I am mentally preparing myself to deal with that," Henderson concedes. "Nate and Nick, the whole scrap pack team, they do a good job of getting inside other fighters' heads, whether it's their body language, whether it's their words or whatever the case may be.

"It works well for them. I'm definitely preparing myself mentally to face that, and when I do face that, act accordingly. I don't intend on it affecting me. I don't intend on going out there and being all mad, all of a sudden getting emotional."

the mods should encourage fighters to come here and start an "insult me like Diaz would" thread before they fight the diaz's.


it would give the UG a time to fighter bash that was welcomed by the fighter and actually allowed them to prepare for the worst that diaz could throw at them.

therapy for haters deliver to fighters in a beneficial way.

I see Bendo really working leg and body kicks and Diaz saying "you call that a kick bitch" no matter how hard they connect. Still picking Bendo in this one Phone Post

The left low is what I was thinking. The way Cerrone was able to kick him as a sweep That seems like a good idea. Phone Post

I see Nate doing more damage and winning the "fight", but spending much more time on his back for enough rounds to lose. I love the Diaz bros, but Henderson has a point.

or it could have an opposite effect and crush their self esteem.  go into a fight all insecure and shit. 

diaz.  probably by sub.  if it goes to decision it'll be cuz ben took the condit route in which case i'm sure he'd get the nod.  usually if the fight is close and there's one nice guy and one thuggy rep guy, the nice guy gets the nod.  especially if he's the current champ

btw:  there's a blue print to beat ANYone.  the fact that he's even pointing it out shows how much in awe of nate he already is.

Bendo's the choice on paper but Bendo has a habit of getting dragged into wars. I'm hoping Bendo forgets the blueprint & we see something more like Bendo-Cowboy 1 or Bendo-Pettis than Guida-Nate, Maynard-Nate, etc.

IMO this will be the best card ever on Fox, even though the last 2 have been amazing & better than most PPVs.

Every aspect of Nate's game seems to have taken a big leap in the last year or so, this fight is going to be awesome.

Yeah so what's the bluebrint on Jones then?

Oh yeah, that's right, create a fighter that doesn't exist.

Nate has big problems with great MMA wrestlers (like Bendo) who have excellent sub defense (also like Bendo). If you file this one in the "awed by Nate" drawer as opposed to the "no shit Sherlock" drawer then you're obviously doing it wrong & have no business working as a secretary.

Don't lose your head when he knocks your cowboy hat off. Don't get sloppy because he calls you a bitch in the cage. That's how he beat Donald, effective mind-games.

i think your point might actually be valid if I had said "i personally know all the blue prints on every fighter."  any man can be beaten.  If I'm fighting someone I consider beneath me, the last thing I'll feel the need to point out is how a blue print exists to beat the guy.  that is called an affirmation born from his own insecurity which is being used to combat the mental game he is currently losing.  diaz is already deep in his head. 

i can type fast and make good coffee, come at me bro

I think this fight will be very close, look a lot like Benson's first fight with Cerrone.
