"Well yeah, it's a big fight," Diaz said earlier this week on a media conference call for the fight. "It's important and there's a belt. So It's pretty much the biggest thing going on right now."

A fairly typical Diaz answer, to be certain. Short, sweet and to the point.

But when pressed, maybe, just maybe, as much as his reputation is that of a street-tough brawler who's just as likely to throw up a middle finger at you as he is smack you around for three rounds – maybe Diaz is cool, after all, with being a champ and being in the limelight.

"I think it would be good because my teammates have all been champions," he said. "And I don't know ... maybe it's my turn with something like that."

Diaz winning the belt would make him the most successful member of the team IMO.

Yeah gil, Nick, and Shields have all had major belts, but none of them were in the UFC.

Not a fan at all of the Ceasar Gracie camp but its definetly a great team and the guy who looked like the worst has a good possibility of being the best one on paper and maybe even for real of the entire team.

Since the Donald Cerrone fight Nate has looked incredible and the strinking is just as good as Nicks, just hope they have great takedown defense.

When Mate was on the Ultimate Fighter and I really got to know him and take a look at his frame and his fighting ability, while I thought he was talented I felt he seemed a bit too weak and bit too small to ever be a true threat and tht
Anyone with decent skill and strength would be able to over power him. Really just thought they put him on because he was Nicks brother and had a bit of success in smaller shows but that he wouldn't have much of a future. To see him go from cornering his bro as a young kid to the small shows, to TUF, to fighting foot the title on FOX and really carry himself and handle his career in a more mature manner then a lot of the guys on that team is really cool. Sure he has his Diaz moments but it's nice to see him handle his business, make money, and turn into one of the best fighters in the world. Rooting for Nate all the way! Phone Post

Gotta say, I like Nate's attitude going into this fight. He's low key and even-keeled. He'll benefit from staying level-headed going into the cage. Here's hoping he pulls it off! Phone Post

I'm really pulling for Diaz. There's not much else you can say except he's been on fire recently. If he comes in on point Benson is going to have a long night. Not saying Bendo doesn't have the skills to get it done, he's awesome. This is going to be an awesome fight! Can't wait!! Phone Post

I am definitely rooting for Nate in this fight even though I am a Henderson fan as well. Nate is local to me and I love the Diaz bros fighting style. I think he has a solid chance to win, but Ben is a strong beast, so it will be an interesting fight to watch. I would love to see Nate catch Ben in a sub. WAR 209.

nothing would make me happier than seeing nate go in there and get an impressive win and take the belt.
he has the opportunity to step out of the shadows and make a real name for himself besides the 'little brother diaz' tag. i cannot wait for this fight.

I can't help but think how he lost 5 Out of 8 not that long ago. Smooth runs through him.

He went up to WW. That division is full of bigger (obviously), incredible wrestlers, it made no sense for him to be up there

"maybe" it's my time.  It's typical Diaz to not try and sound too tough outside the cage, but shut that cage door and woo doggie it's on like donkey kong
