It’s been a long and winding road, but Nate Diaz (Pictured) is just days away from finally entering a UFC championship fight. Unfortunately for Mr. 209, he’ll step inside the Octagon Saturday as a slight underdog against reigning lightweight king Benson Henderson.
Diaz has been pegged as a +130 dark horse against “Smooth.” Henderson, meanwhile, checks in as a -160 odds-on favorite to retain his hardware.
Key Arena in Washington state hosts the scrap.
