At UFC on Fox 3 on May 5, 2012, at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Jim Miller will rock the main event in a match-up against fellow top lightweight contender Nate Diaz. The winner will purportedly be given a title shot against the winner of the Ben Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar rematch going down later this year.
But don't bring that up to Miller. Frankly, he's sick and tired of talking about it.
"It's really starting to get on me. Hearing everybody ask about the title shot and everybody talking about the title shot; It's not about the title shot, it's about winning the title and being the best and being known as the best and having respect from everybody that you are the best."
It bodes well for Miller that his lone defeat in his past nine fights came to the aforementioned Henderson, who is the reigning division champion. Not only that, Miller was reportedly sick for their fight in Aug. 2011. A rematch between the two when both are healthy sounds like a scrap worthy of the belt.
But, again, Miller has some business to take care of first. Anyone think Diaz will crash the party and shake up the 155-pound title picture once again?
