Video: Jim Miller wants to make a statement in Nate Diaz fight at UFC on FOX 3

While Ben Henderson, Frankie Edgar and Anthony Pettis go round-and-round trying to sort out the lightweight title picture, another 155-pound clash set for UFC on Fox 3 on May 5 in New Jersey will go a long way in deciding the next name thrown into the mix.

Jim Miller will take on Nate Diaz in the main event of the promotion's next foray onto network television and he wants to use the platform to make a statement.

"Training's going good for this fight. We're 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 my cardio up. I know Nate pushes a good pace so I want to be ready for anything once I step into the Octagon. I really want to make a statement in this fight and really cement myself as one of the top 155-pounders."

A win could either earn Miller a title shot or, at the very least, a number one contender bout, possibly against Pettis if he's still waiting around. Anyone think that's the picture about to be painted? Or will Diaz step in and play spoilsport?
