If you subscribe to MI theory the guy is probably exceptionally gifted when it comes to Body kinistetic and spatial learning styles. Just because he speaks like that does not indicate that his iq is low (although a traditional bell curve IQ might show that he is not school smart).

    I think it is good for benson to try this, but still think he will get suckered into an emotional fight. This will be a good scrap.
    It's funny that you would point that out, because my job is helping people with my daily lives.

    I think for someone to get as good as the Diaz brothers are at fighting, you have to be somewhat intelligent. That being said, I believe that they poorly display it, and almost always seem incredibly unpleasant. I understand that forcing yourself to dislike your opponent may help some people fight with more intensity, but they take it to a ridiculous level. I do not think that they are good people, but obviously I do not know them personally.

    He is basically saying "Talk shit to me Nate, talk a lot of shit, I will be affected by it and you will be having an advantage".

    I am not quite sure if Nate will realize it though. Not easy to do it when your IQ is 20. But maybe someone will tell him (maybe his old buddy Renato Laranja) so his trash talk will begin very soon.

    Well at least he's aware of his weakness and has incorporated that into his training. That could make a huge difference in this fight. I think it's going to be a huge test for Henderson if Nate can fight as well as his brother in this fight. I still have Henderson winning a UD.

    Henderson is aware of the physical challenges that his opponent brings to the table, but humorously enough, it's Diaz's trash talking that has him currently preoccupied:

    From his conversation with Inside MMA:
    "We're definitely trying to prepare for his physical tools, his long reach, his boxing style that he has. But, the biggest thing we've had trouble with, to be honest, is we've been having my teammates talking trash inside the Octagon, and have me stay calm and not be worked up. I was having a hard time with that. When someone talks trash to me, I wanna talk trash back. When they get emotional, I get emotional back to them. So, I've been working on staying calm, collected and still do my technique and not fall into his game. I gotta do a little more work on that, though.

    I just got done sparring, and my training partners, Efrain Escudero and Joe Riggs, were told by my coaches to talk crap and to say not very nice things to me. I don't like it. I don't like it when people say not very nice things to me. But, yeah, they're told to talk crap to me, and I'm suppose to not get lured into that game and do something I'm not supposed to do.I'm supposed to stay calm and collected and implement my game plan, still. I have been having a hard time with that, but hopefully, we get that taken care of, and come fight night, I won't allow any of that trash talking to get into my head and affect my game."
    Trash talk aside, Henderson feels (and most fans agree) that the showdown with Diaz should shape up to be a very entertaining fight, and a great way to help finish off the year.

    Henderson sees it being a contest between two very evenly matched athletes:

    "I really think this is going to be a case of a true MMA fight. Nate has great stand up, great boxing, but his ground game is sometimes overshadowed by how good he is standing up -- how good is boxing skills are. But, he's well-rounded. He has good skills standing up and on the ground. I like to think I'm pretty skilled, myself. I'm not too bad standing or on the ground. I think you're gonna see a little bit of that. You're see us standing up, banging away. You're see us on the ground, getting after it, as well."
