This Saturday is a huge card with UFC on Fox 5 surprisingly having one of the most stacked cards of the year for UFC even though the event will be viewed for free on the Fox station. Benson Henderson and Nate Diaz are headlining the event with the UFC Lightweight Championship on the line.
Benson Henderson is the current holder of the lightweight title having won the championship in February of this year over Frankie Edgar and then defending the title against Edgar once again in April. This will be Henderson’s first title fight in the UFC where he isn’t up against Frankie Edgar.
Nate Diaz, who is two years younger than Edgar at age 27, won the right to battle for the title after defeating Jim Miller via guillotine choke in May of this year in a title eliminator fight. Diaz will have his hands full against Henderson, but he does have the submission skills to possibly pull out a win over Henderson who has won each of his UFC fights via decision.
