I agree. Quick punch-kick combos for Henderson, then getting out and circling. I see him using tons of kicks early, and 'circling', a lot.

I do hope these guys stand up, though. With Nate, I always fear a repeat effort from his Joe Stephenson fight, where he pretty much gave up when the fight became a wrestling match. If Henderson isnt getting the points in the standup, I could see him riding Diaz, but Henderson likes to fight more than he likes to wrestle. Not sure if Benson will finish him, though. He hasnt had a stoppage since WEC vs Cerrone, but thats exactly how he would finish this fight.
