Should he defeat Benson Henderson in the UFC on Fox 5 main event, Nate Diaz will join an elite few. The only The Ultimate Fighter contestants to ever win a UFC championship are Matt Serra, Forrest Griffin and Rashad Evans, but Diaz would join that group with a victory on Saturday.
Diaz won the fifth season of the reality series after Manny Gamburyan suffered an injury in the finals. Following his win over Gamburyan, Diaz embarked on a five-year journey to the point he has finally reached today as the top contender in the lightweight division.
In the same calendar year that his brother failed to earn UFC gold in a bout against Carlos Condit, Diaz will have a chance to crawl out from the shadows of his sibling. As the biggest fight of Diaz's career draws near, let's take a look at every fight on the card he is headlining this weekend.
