After 16 Octagon scraps, Nate Diaz (Pictured) will finally be entering a championship fight. Unfortunately for Mr. 209, he’ll be stepping into the cage as a slight underdog against lightweight champ Benson Henderson. As you can see from the picture above, Diaz is not too pleased. Actually, he couldn’t care less as long as he leaves Seattle with the hardware. Diaz is pegged as a slight +130 dark horse in Saturday’s featured attraction. Henderson, meanwhile, checks in as a -160 odds-on favorite to retain his crown. Key Arena in Washington state hosts tonight’s shindig.
