Default Naughty fight card - just noticed it...

Benson Henderson (c) vs. Nate Diaz
Maurício Rua vs. Alexander Gustafsson
B.J. Penn vs. Rory MacDonald
Mike Swick vs. Matt Brown

Even a few decent ones on the undercard i.e. Schaub vs Johnson.

Looks like its Gustafsson time to really step up and Rua to show if hes still got it. Massive ross road fight for both. Same with BJ and Rory. Ones on the cusp of being the top contender and the other always seems one fight away from possible retirement.

Oh and Hendo vs Diaz will be pure violence for as long as it last, which is possibly 5 rounds!

December 8th, wow.

Donald Cerrone was able to sweep the legs of Nate Diaz, and Hendo hit Frankie Edgar with hard low kicks last time out. I think Diaz may be in trouble! Shogun Rua is getting punched out, and I hope BJ Penn opens up that cut on Rory Mac. Sorry, but I hate seeing old fighters go down!

It's exactly the kind of card the UFC should be promoting.

Title match on free TV, with an undercard of exciting prospects verses faded (but still relevant) legends.

Great card and I'm really looking forward to it. Every fight on the main card is interesting to me.

Remember when Cerrone was pulling on his leg but couldn't get the submission. Serious flexibility.

Seriously, is that why people call him Bendo then?

Poor guy, what a shitty nickname.

His name is Benson Henderson.

Dan Henderson's nickname is Hendo, so Benson Henderson picked up the name Bendo. That's how I assume he got it anyway.

From the outside looking in that name has some....er....odd connotations of the unmacho variety.

Yeah, it really just to distinguish between the two big Henderson's in the sport.
