UFC Lightweight Nate Diaz finished Jim Miller in the second round of their UFC on Fox 3 bout. He will wait a shot at the winner of the Ben Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar rematch expected for UFC 150. Diaz will not fight Anthony Pettis in the interim.
In the video above ESPN puts together the highlights of Diaz vs. Miller as seen on Fox TV. Diaz baited Miller into fighting his fight and outlanded the New Jersey native. Once the fight went to the ground, Diaz made short work of Miller and got the submission.
Diaz may be headed for a title shot but it’s unclear where Miller will go from here. He’s racked off enough losses recently that it seems unlikely he has any title shot possibilities in 2012. Miller will need to reel off a long string of wins to get back into contention.
Diaz’ brother Nick Diaz, the UFC Welterweight contender who is currently suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission worked in Diaz’ corner.
