Winner Of Henderson-Edgar Will Face Nate Diaz Next

UFC president Dana White has seen enough of rematches in the UFC’s lightweight division. That’s news to the ears of Nate Diaz.

Saturday night, UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson will defend his title for the first time against Frankie Edgar in the main event of UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II. Henderson won the belt from Edgar, but “The Answer” was granted an immediate rematch.

“Yes, Nate Diaz will fight the winner,” said White, during an interview on Fuel TV Friday after the weigh-ins.

Edgar won the belt from BJ Penn, but was forced to fight Penn a second time. After winning that fight, he was positioned against Gray Maynard, but those two fought to a draw. A third meeting was scheduled, which Edgar won.
