what are you thoughts on the upcoming Jim Miller vs Nate Diaz fight who do you think is a bigger threat to Benson Henderson ??@Anonymous
I am super stoked for Miller vs. Diaz! I am leaning a little more towards Diaz, because even though both of them are terrific fighters & submission specialists (esp Miller with the finishes), I think Nate Diaz can stand and bang a little better you know? He can take more hits to the face. Well I guess he has proven that. I’m not so certain about Miller in that aspect.
I would also say that Diaz is a bigger threat to Benson because of that. Diaz drops bombs. If you’re someone who has no head movement *cough*Cerrone*cough* you can get beat up. Also, Benson probably knows Millers style a little better because they fought once before. Obviously rematches can go differently, but maybe Diaz is a little bit more of a surprise.
Don’t get me wrong I think Benson Henderson is an extremely talented fighter, I just think Diaz might give him a little more trouble than Miller would.
