If you had watched Benson Henderson’s successful title defense over Nate Diaz at UFC on Fox recently, you likely saw the unorthodox striking from “Bendo.” Feinting jabs and striking to the leg of Nate, the odd strike setup a huge combo, dropping his opponent. As UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre looks to make a successful title defense as well against another Diaz in Nick, he believes the ‘blueprint’ has been laid out on defeating the older brother, thanks to Henderson.
“That funny you asked that question because I watched very carefully your fight against Nate Diaz. I’m going to try to use some of the stuff you have done in the fight to win over Nick Diaz, as well. I’m going to learn from what you did and try to apply it in my game plan. Thanks for showing me the blueprint.” (Via Fuel TV)
