Nate Diaz to face Benson Henderson at UFC on FOX 5

Incredibly exciting news for UFC on FOX 5 according to BloodyElbow. Rory MacDonald vs BJ Penn, Alexander Gustafsson vs Shogun Rua and UFC lightweight kingpin Benson Henderson vs Nate Diaz have been added to the card. This will be one of the best events of the year, clearly better than some PPV’s (about a hundred times better than the last Brazil card!). Henderson, who squeaked by Edgar in a much debated decision, is set to defend the title against Diaz, after Diaz obliterated Cerrone and Jim Miller. Henderson does have the wrestling advantage and better ground and pound, but Diaz’s boxing, submission grappling, scrambles, cardio and trash talking/taunting can prove to be the difference maker. It should be a great fight.
