This is sure to be a kick ass card, with some excited fights. If Henderson fights a smart fight (modeling Carlos Condits strategy with Nick Diaz) we should see a pretty exciting Title fight.
Henderson has made waves in the lightweight division since joining from the WEC. He has beat some quality opponents and is the only man to beat Frankie Edgar not once, but twice. He will be tackling a tough challenge, however, as he sets to square off against one of the most durable and dynamic jiu jitsu experts in Nate Diaz. Diaz's boxing style is analogous to his brothers. He doesn't throw everything into one punch, rather he throws a heavy volume of punches, which often his opponents can't reciprocate.
Also, Shogun Rua will square off against Alexander Gustaffson in what should determine who is next in line for Jon Jones, who is currently dominating the light heavyweight division. Both fighters have some of the best stand up skills, which should make this fight a highly technical stand up fight.
Other fights on the card include B.J. Penn vs. Rory MacDonald, Mike Swick vs. Matt Brown, Brendan Schaub vs. Lavar Johnson, Ramsey Nijem vs. Joe Proctor, Yves Edwards vs. John Cholish, Daron Cruickshank vs. Henry Martinez, Scott Jorgensen vs. John Albert, and Tim Means vs. Abel Truijillo. It should be an exciting night of fights that has a lot of implications for the winner of the main and co-main event.
