For fans of mixed martial arts, this past week has been a slow crawl of steadily rising anticipation for tonight's "Diaz vs. Miller" event, going down at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
UFC on Fox 3 will feature a lightweight title eliminator bout pitting Stockton bad boy Nate Diaz against 155-pound wrecking ball and perennial top contender Jim Miller.
In the co-main event, Johny Hendricks will seek to cement his name amongst the welterweight elite when he battles former title challenger Josh Koscheck. Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson and Rousimar Palhares vs. Alan Belcher are also slated to air on network television.
It's been a flurry of non-stop news, analysis, quotes, predictions and previews for the past week and it's certainly understandable if you missed out on a few stories.
But don't worry, Maniacs, we've got you covered.
In cased you missed any or all of it — or just want to keep the discussion alive — below are links to all the major storylines heading into tonight's broadcast.
