Diaz Flips Henderson The Bird In UFC Title Fight Loss
For 25 minutes on Saturday night, Benson Henderson owned Nate Diaz in the UFC Lightweight Championship Fight. With legs the size of tree trunks, and a heart to match, Benson showed why he is the champion...but that didn't stop Diaz from pulling one of his signature moves.
In what is a normal move for Diaz (just google Nate Diaz Middle Finger), Nate throws up the one finger salute while the two fighters are on the mat trying to submit each other. If you watched the event live, then you probably missed it. In one of the drawbacks to seeing live events on a network channel, Fox avoided FCC violations by cutting away from the bout during the incident. They actually cut away a few times, which leads me to believe that this wasn't an isolated incident.
