Credit to Nate Diaz, he knows how to keep it simple.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) took one step closer to clearing up the murky waters that represent the lightweight division's title picture, now that Ben Henderson narrowly defeated Frankie Edgar in their UFC 150 rematch last weekend in Denver.
Keep the line moving.
That means "Bendo" will next defend his 155-pound strap against the division number one contender and former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Champion later this year, but as Diaz explains to the fine folks at Inside MMA, this isn't about winning the belt.
"I train with guys just like that. Athletic guys, strong guys. It's definitely gonna be a good, hard fight. It's time to fight for a title. I'm gonna do what I could to win that belt because that belt gives me ... I'm tryin' to do it for my team and f--k the belt, I'm tryin' to beat the number one guy in the world and that's him right now."
