Nate Diaz recently appeared on Inside MMA, ahead of his title fight with Lightweight Champion Benson Henderson at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz on December 8, 2012 at KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, live on FOX.

Diaz believes he cannot leave it to the judges.

“I don’t think I’ve got a chance of winning any type of decision," said Diaz. "So I gotta go out there and do what I can do to try and finish my opponent, try to be the better fighter and win the fight. Either way, if it goes to a decision, I’m going to try to be the one outscoring, outpointing and outdoing him.”

Diaz's trainer, manager, and mentor Cesar Gracie echoed the remarks.

“I’ve never really seen a close decision where the nod is given to the Diaz (brothers)," said Grace. "If it’s close, they’re going to lose. “I don’t know why, maybe the judges don’t really care for them much that much; they’re brash.”

Hmm...

Cesar rarely comes out with any smart comments, and this was not an exception. I love watching Diaz bothers fight, though and this fight is gonna be fun!

I enjoy the Diaz bros, Nate more than Nick, but Cesar really just needs to shut it, everything that dude says is just sour immature garbage. He is the main reason people like to hate on the whole Cesar Gracie camp.

Agreed with above, that Cesar really needs to shut his mouth, he is doing his fighters no favors when it comes to PR. I mean, if you want them to be looked like just brash thug type guys great, but all the whining doesnt suit that image

He's got probably the worst takedown defense of anyone in the top 5 LWs. Takedowns score points, I'm not sure the Diaz brothers got the memo. Jake Shields certainly did Phone Post

Anybody new to MMA and Cesar Gracie quickly learn why the media stick mics in his face at every chance......it's almost guaranteed he'll say something stupid regarding a Diaz. Phone Post

Nate can't win ANY TYPE of decision?  Funny, 2 of his last 7 wins in the UFC are by decision and 1 was a 'split decision' over Neer.  So not only does he win decisions, he wins closes decisions too.

And Cesar is such an enabler.  'Oh those poor Diaz brothers just can't catch a break.'  It's great how he doesn't bring up any of Nicks 5 decisions wins, especially the Aina 1 where many think Nick lost.  Hey Cesar, when they get taken down and controlled at will, they are going to lose a decision.  Throwing their arms in the air and calling their opponents a bitch does not win fights.  Maybe bring in some wrestlers to your school.

Yeah, I don't think the Diaz bros struggle with judges any more than everyone else. They win some close ones, they lose some close ones. Phone Post

I think it's just an "underdog" mentality to help keep the camp motivated. Phone Post

I believe Nate wins this fight. Bendo will try to wrestle control him but Nate is extremely dangerous with submissions from just about anywhere. Standup Bendo will try to use plenty of leg kicks but Diaz reach may negate their effectiveness.

This next fight card lined up for FOX is one of the better ones I've seen in a while.

Cesar really does talk too much.

Just the other day he's saying Nick should get GSP or Silva next. Hey, Mr. Gracie, how about getting Nick off the weed and getting him to show up for press conferences before you start pushing for a huge payday?

If I'm the UFC I'd never trust this guy to show up clean and/or show up at all to put him into a main event again -- unless he seriously grows up and gets his act together.

IDK but I cant wait to find out.

What happens if we find out, and don't like what we just saw?

Do we quit life?
