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. Here are the complete investment options for UFC on FOX 5 (Courtesy of BetUS): Underdogs (+) Favorites (-) Preliminary Card: John Albert +200 Scott Jorgensen -260 Nam Phan +220 Dennis Siver -300 Abel Trujillo +110 Marcus Levesseur -140 Henry Martinez +135 Daron Cruickshank -165 Joe Proctor +160 Ramsey Nijem -200 Raphael Assuncao +210 Mike Easton -280 Yves Edwards +160 Jeremy Stephens -200 Main Card: Mike Swick -180 Matt Brown +150 Rory MacDonald -280 BJ Penn +210 Alexander Gustafsson -220 Mauricio “Shogun” Rua +175 Benson Henderson -160 Nate Diaz +130
