UFC on Fox 3: "Diaz vs. Miller" took place this past Saturday night (May 5, 2012) from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey, featuring Nate Diaz earning a lightweight title shot -- which he'll actually wait for, apparently -- by submitting Jim Miller in the second round of their main event match-up.
A Diaz could be a champion in the UFC before the year is out, folks. And it's not Nick.
Johny Hendricks continued his assault on the 170-pound division by defeating Josh Koscheck via split decision in the co-headlining bout. The result was disputed by some -- Ricardo Almeida scored the fight for "Kos" -- but the Fight Metric numbers backed it up.
Other action on the card saw Lavar Johnson brutalize Pat Barry in their heavyweight affair and Alan Belcher escape one of Rousimar Palhares patented leg locks to pound him out for a first round stoppage.
