I just saw the Cerrone vs. Nate Diaz fight pop up on my Facebook. I remember at the time Cerrone was on fire and I thought he would certainly have the answers to exploit the weaknesses that Nate has on paper. I was surprised how much Cerrone was getting smashed on but I was impressed with Nate because I had underestimated him in the past. Still after rewatching a bit of it, I can't help but think Cerrone was better than that. On the other hand, Nate got a titleshot against Benson after Edgar got robbed. I really believed in Nate at this point. I did not believe Bendo's boxing was elite nor did I think his takedowns and submissions were. I thought Nate could make it very interesting but it turned out to be Benson's most dominant title defense. Nate completely shit the bed. So looking back at both of those fights, was it simply a masterclass by Nate vs. Cerrone and then Benson against Nate? Or did Cerrone shit the bad just as Diaz did against Benson???
