MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani spoke to UFC on Fox 3 winners Nate Diaz and Johny Hendricks last night following their big wins over Jim Miller and Josh Koscheck, respectively. Both men are looking at title shots for their next fights. Diaz won a big victory via second round submission over Miller and Hendricks took a split decision win over Koscheck.
After the jump we’ll hear from Hendricks as well as main card winners Alan Belcher and Lavar Johnson. Belcher beat Rousimar Palhares with an amazing display of defensive Jiu-Jitsu that created the opportunity for him to finish Palhares with some brutal ground-and-pound.
Johnson beat up Pat Barry on the feet and survived a surprising ground assault from Barry who managed to mount and side-mount Johnson and even threatened with an Americana arm lock. But it wasn’t enough as Johnson got back to his feet and battered Barry for the stoppage.
MMA Fighting has video interviews with more of the winners from UFC on Fox 3 including John Dodson, Louis Gaudinot, John Hathaway, Roland Delorme, and Dennis Bermudez.
