UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson isn't one to hype a fight, but heading into the second defense of his title, he hopes his opponent will help sell it to the public.

"I don't think Nate Diaz is going to be a big talker and say a bunch of stuff, but it's nice to have something the media can latch onto," Henderson told MMAjunkie.com.

While Henderson's bottom line won't necessarily be affected by the number of viewers who watch the bout, he would like to increase his earning power

Nate, did a nice job hyping the Cerrone fight by knocking off his cowboy hat. Maybe Bendo should wear a big ass hat to the weigh ins.

I can't wait to see Nate do his thing again. He's always been really exciting to watch and even more so since his return to Lightweight. I'm picking Nate to win and I really hope I'm right.

So much win right here! My sentiments exactly.

As for Benson, I liked him a lot more before I followed him on twitter. I had to unfollow him with a quickness, dude was annoying as fuck. I don't know if he can become a super big draw, but for his sake and the UFC, I hope he does.

I always found him to have that oh so rare exciting grappling. Like Carlos Newton back in the day. I guess I'm gonna have to look at his twitter.
