Benson Henderson vs. Nate Diaz Results - Ben Henderson had fought two consecutive bouts against former UFC Lightweight Champion Frank Edgar prior to this bout, both of which he won via decision. That said, both fights were closely contested and controversial in their outcome (especially their second fight at UFC 150). Regardless, he had won five straight coming into this UFC on FOX 5 match up, including victories over Edgar, Clay Guida, Jim Miller, and Mark Bocek- so certainly nothing to scoff at. His opponent, Nate Diaz, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, boxing, and cardio nightmare, was on a nice streak as well, having won three straight, including victories over Jim Miller, Donald Cerrone, and Takanori Gomi.

Early on, Diaz forced a clinch and the two engaged in dirty boxing for approximately hafl the round. Diaz did well, but then Henderson's strength showed through from there, netting a couple of short lived takedowns. In addition, near the one minute mark Henderson landed a hard low kick that put Diaz on the canvas momentarily. And later, he also hit home with a hard combination.

Henderson takes round.

Early in round two, Henderson took his opponent down. Diaz got right back to his feet but paid the price with strikes from the champ. Simply put, Henderson bullied his adversary for the rest of the stanza.

Round three saw Henderson nab an early takedown and basically beat Diaz up in a variety of ways, both on his feet and on the ground as positions changed. Both looked for leg locks and positions throughout the round. However, Henderson dropped his adversary with a right toward the end of the round.

Henderson is just too strong for Diaz.

Round four saw Henderson take his opponent down and dominate from a control perspective. And although Henderson landed a big shot that once again put him in a dominant position, Diaz kept working hard.

Diaz needs a stoppage in order to win.

Round five once again saw Henderson win by ground control perspective perspective. The bottom line? The champ did a great job.

Benson Henderson defeats Nate Diaz by unanimous decision.
