Gray Maynard: Nate Diaz will beat Henderson, I hit harder than Jamie VarnerPosted on September 2, 2012, 11:38 AM by Anton Gurevich
Former two-time UFC Lightweight title challenger, Gray "The Bully" Maynard, shared his thoughts about the landscape of his weight class. According to Maynard, Ben Henderson "gets away" with a lot of "stuff" because he's a southpaw. However, Maynard revealed he thinks Nate Diaz will dethrone Ben Henderson at UFC on FOX 5 later this year. "The Bully" plans to challenge Nate Diaz, with sights on getting his third shot at the title.
Speaking about his upcoming fight with Joe Lauzon, Gray Maynard declared he hits harder than Jamie Varner, who was submitted by J-Lau after toe-to-toe action at last month's UFC on FOX card in Los Angeles, California.
"Yeah, he's been doing good. The last one, he did a good job. He came back, tough scrap, looked good. That was probably the best that he's looked. He didn't gas out, he didn't try all kinds of jumping moves or choke holds or heel hooks in the first round to gas out. He looked good. I think it should be a good fight. He got dropped a couple times but he came back. I feel like I hit harder than a lot of people." - Quote via MMAMania.com
