He’s young, he’s brash and the kid can fight.

Since his return to lightweight, Nate Diaz has been on a tear, running through his last three opponents. It’s this kind of dominance in the UFC that has earned him a title shot against resilient champ Benson Henderson.

Since first appearing on The Ultimate Fighter Season 5, Diaz has shown that his skills as a fighter have improved leaps and bounds, and he is no longer just Nick’s Diaz little brother. With his title shot just days away, his ultimate goal is within reach.

"The Ultimate Show" sat down with Nate Diaz to hear his thoughts on his next opponent, Benson Henderson, and what he plans to do come Saturday, December 8 in Seattle.
