This does have fight of the year written all over it and I cant wait to see it!
I don't think it'll be FOTY, I'm not even sure it'll be FOTN. But I do agree that if Benson fights smart, and puts on a leg kicking clinic, I think he wins the fight fairly decisively, and fairly safely.
Both Diaz brothers are good on the feet and have top notch jitz. I really like watching them both fight, but what I see them fail to do, is adjust their game on the fly. When they're stifled, they don't adjust.
Getting angry, swearing, and flipping the bird is not a gameplan adjustment.
