However, Diaz's reputation as a forward-moving, bird-flipping fighter can hardly hurt for promoting the bout, and by extension, Henderson. The 28-year-old champ sees the benefit of hype, being an avid fan of onetime middleweight title challenger and current light-heavyweight contender Chael Sonnen, who was recently named one of the top-five PPV draws in the company.

"He knows it's a promotional game," Henderson said of Sonnen. "He is of average speed, average athletic-wise, white guy, average-looking, and he wrestles guys. He holds guys down – that's his game. Who wants to see that? That's not a super-marketable (style). But as soon as he starts talking, he's very marketable. And he knows that."

Henderson, though, doesn't want to play the same game. Instead, he wants to do his entertaining in the cage. A thrilling bout with Diaz will be a job well done.

"You have to be entertaining and have a few tricks up your sleeves, (to where people say), 'Oh wow, what was that?'" Henderson said. "A few entertaining tricks, and hopefully you pull them off."

The title for that article moves key words that totally change the tone in which he made the statement. At first I was like: "dude did Henderson really say that?" Then I read the article. "nope"

It is racist......But, if you are white and complain, you are considered sensitive.......I don't like the race shit regardless of who is saying it and regardless of which group is attacked........This reminds me of when Forrest said he could not lose to a Hispanic dude in the homeland.....It just makes me cringe and lose respect for these guys.....

Two race related UG Blog headlines on the same day America is about to re-elect Obama. Coincidence, or is that you Mitt Romney?

He said that? Also it's not cool to bring race into something that has nothing to do with race white folks included. Phone Post

I can't fucking stand this accepted racism, but I can't stand many of these manipulative titles either!

It still implied racism, but not as bad as title implies. "Underground Blog" you suck ass!!!
