Going into this fight i was like meh...Ben Henderson, whatever....I hope Nate takes his head off. By the middle of round 4 I was like Fuck yeahh!!!!!....Henderson is a monster!! just hurry up and take Nate out of his misery..

I was really impressed by his physicality (beep) and how he really knew exactly what he had to do to get in Nates head. It was an incredible performance and I am now a fan.

He also showed smarts vs Diaz, he showed great timing in when to do what.

No one has stifled a Diaz's standup like that.

I am slowly becoming a fan. I'd like to see him be a little more agressive with finishing guys, but I think that has a lot to do with the strong caliber of opponents he has faced, so I am not too worried yet about his lack of finishing

The pace for 25 minutes is just unbelievable. There was zero lay n pray. I respect Diaz for keeping going. Phone Post

He's looked pretty unstoppable in each of his fights other than the Edgar fights. Edgar makes people look bad, not so much improving imo.

Pretty much my take on it.

He always looked good, but this fight won me over.

He is getting there in my mind. He's not quite there for me. Once he finishes someone in spectacular fashion, I can't really like the guy.
He is exciting though, not a single moment of that fight was boring. Phone Post

I agree with the OP, I never really thought anything about Henderson but last night he showed he is a monster and I am a fan of his now. Phone Post

He does thank his training partners too. I can't recall which fight it was after, perhaps Bocek or Miller, but he pleaded with Dana to bring his teammates into the UFC Phone Post

What is it with you retards and your obsession with finishing? If that fight wasnt exciting enough for you, mma may not be the sport for you. Go watch toughman. Phone Post

That's good. I like when fighters give props to who actually helped them get ready.

Exciting young dude to watch even if I was rooting for Nate.

Spectacular performance.

I loled when he jabbed Nates thigh then dropped him with a nasty step in right Phone Post

Honestly, I think he was very aggressive last night The fact he couldn't finish Nate is just a a testament (pun intended) to how good Nates defense skills were. Henderson was throwing down with some very mean intentions and great power. Props to Nate for not getting murdered in there.

The way he was targeting diaz lead leg with kicks was brutal.
I have never seen anyone target the legs with punches the way he did either.
He literally controlled every single thing that happened in there and hit the after parties looking like he never even had a fight.

1) his cardio is crazy. Maybe the best.
2) his huge legs and strong core kept Diaz from doing anything when they locked up. That low center of gravity had Nate off balance the whole time.
3) he never let Nate establish his range or be comfortable at any point of the fight.

That was actually a brilliant performance from Ben. Phone Post

Loved the fight and his style but that guy has the WORST post-fight talks ever. Been a fan of his fighting since him coming up in WEC, but damn.. People complain Rory lacks charisma on the mic? Phone Post

I agree, everyone talks about the Diaz brother's cardio, but nobody talks about Bendo's. Dude cuts some pretty serious amounts of weight and doesn't really seem to fade - even in 5 round fights.

This.  I am not a fan of anyone trying to drive any sort of religion down someones throat during an interview.  Unless you are specifically asked about your religion, don't bring it up please.  I would love one fighter to just step up for the atheists and thank science or Stephen Hawking or something like that after their fight.

Disagree. He's putting it all together better and that's improving. Phone Post

Cardio for days. Aggressive as he'll. Benson is great. His post fight interview belongs to him. He's earned that time. Either mute him or don't. Phone Post

its really to cool to watch when an emerging talent puts all the pieces together and then just takes off, Bendo won me over some time ago and I hope he keeps the title for a long time
