"Training's going good for this fight, nine weeks out right now so I'm doing a lot of technique and just trying to become a better fighter at this moment and build the cardio up. I know Nate pushes a good pace, so I wanna be ready for anything once I step inside the Octagon. I really wanna make a statement in this fight and really cement myself as one of the top 155'ers."
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight contender Jim Miller will butt heads with Nate Diaz at UFC on FOX 3 on May 5, 2012, from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ, not far from the AMA Fight Club where he trains and calls home, alongside older brother Dan.
The winner is expected to get the next crack at the division crown in the aftermath of Frankie Edgar vs. Ben Henderson II later this year. Who takes this battle of lightweight brawlers?
