    I'd like Ben to win but somehow I don't think that's gonna happen. Nate definitely is a superior striker and he has managed to beat some top guys in the division with his boxing alone. I guess we will just have to see how much damage can Ben handle and stay with his game plan of keeping and dominating Nate on the ground. Therefore, 60 - 40 in favour of Nate Diaz
    p.s. hope he doesn't smoke up before the fight!

    I am surprised that many people picked Diaz, but he does have the striking & reach adv. As for the BJJ adv.? Ben will not get submitted, unless he gets hurt, but I dont see Diaz hurting Ben. I read that Diaz said that he won't win a decision vs. Henderson, but I think that's exactly how he might win. Diaz's reach adv is what could really make the diff OR Bendo's kicks. This should be a very good fight.

    I have Diaz winning too BUT I think Ben's wrestling is an X factor in this. If he can hold Diaz down he could take the decision. That said I think grandslam has it right giving Diaz the 60-40 advantage. I think he takes a tko or sub victory.

    I CANT BELIEVE PEOPLE REALLY THINK BENDO IS THAT GREAT, HES NOT A GREAT CHAMP NOR WILL HE EVER BE, HE IS JUST A GUY WHO DEFEATED A GREAT FEATHERWEIGHT, BUT WATCH WHEN HE FIGHTS A NORMAL SIZED LIGHTWEIGHT HE WILL TAKE MORE COMETIC DAMAGE SO JUDGES CAN ACTUALLY SEE HE GOT HIT AND HES GONNA GET BEAT, WHAT CAN HE DO TO DIAZ? TAKE HIM DOWN? LOL PLEASE U EVER SEE DIAZ ON HIS BACK? HE NEVER STAYS THERE LONG. DIAZ CAN TKO SUB OR JUST BEAT YOUR FACE IN.. DIaz all the way bendo fans are going to be very dissapointed.
