Cesar Gracie names corner for Nate Diaz vs. Ben Henderson fight at UFC on FOX 5

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Cesar Gracie, head coach for UFC lightweight number one contender Nate Diaz, has named his corner for the Ben Henderson fight going down in the main event of UFC on FOX 5 this Saturday night in Seattle.

Get the seven-second delay button ready, the Diaz brothers are coming to town.

Nate Diaz is coming to take the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight title from Ben Henderson in the main event of UFC on FOX 5, which emanates from the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, this Saturday night (Dec. 8, 2012) live on network television.

And he's bringing some serious firepower with him.

Head coach Cesar Gracie has experience grooming champions.

Nick Diaz is the former Strikeforce welterweight kingpin, while Gilbert Melendez rules the roost in the 155-pound class. Rounding out the corner is Richard Perez, the Gracie camp's longtime boxing coach (see him in action here).

Anyone think this all-star cast will make a difference against "Bendo" on fight night?
