Frankie Edgar, who has faced Ben Henderson twice, predicts that Nate Diaz will be taking the lightweight title at UFC on FOX.

Former UFC lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar who has faced Benson Henderson in back to back fights, gave a pretty interesting prediction for the UFC on Fox 5 main event bout. According to him, Nate Diaz will have the edge on their championship bout:

"I think Nate's going to be a problem for him. I really do. I think Ben is obviously a great fighter. I think it's going to be a high paced fight, but Nate's length, his boxing is pretty tough. "

"I think is always going to fight like he always fights, he's going to go forward, throw a lot of punches. For Ben, I don't know maybe he's got to get takedowns if he can, but he's got to be weary about those submissions."

Interestingly enough, it's not just Edgar who thinks that way. In a video for MMAInterviews.tv below, several other fighters made their Ben Henderson vs. Nate Diaz predictions, and like Edgar, most of them also predicted that Diaz will be taking Henderson's belt back to Stockton.
