Frankie Edgar Willing To Help Nate Diaz Prepare For Benson Henderson

Not many people know UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson better than Frankie Edgar.

It just so happens that Edgar is a past workout partner with Nate Diaz, who will get the next shot at Henderson’s title in December at UFC on Fox 5.

Edgar, while appearing on Sherdog Radio recently, said he would be willing to help Diaz train for “Smooth” if he wanted the help.

If Nate would need my help, or would ask for my help, I would love to help him out. We got some work in last time that was really good. If I could help him out, of course I would.

Edgar was asked to predict how a Diaz-Henderson match might unfold while on the show, as well.

I just think that Nate comes forward so much, I don’t know how well Ben will deal with that. I think Nate’s definitely a great match up for Ben.

Edgar has yet to decide on his fighting future in regards to staying at lightweight or moving down.
