Video: Gracie breakdown of Nate Diaz vs Jim Miller and Alan Belcher vs Rousimar Palhares at UFC on FOX 3

UFC on FOX 3: "Diaz vs. Miller" went down last Saturday night (May 5, 2012) from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ, featuring two examples of high-level submission skills on the televised main card.

First up is streaking middleweight striker Alan Belcher, who also proved he's just as dangerous on the ground, daring Brazilian bone-breaker Rousimar Palhares to lock up one of "The Talent's" legs -- for the sole purpose of proving he couldn't.

Moments later and "Toquinho" was pounded into oblivion.

Two fights later and Nate Diaz was earning his lightweight title shot by handily disposing of fellow 155-pound contender Jim Miller with a nasty power guillotine in the main event.

What do those two bouts have in common?

Both were given the "Gracie Breakdown" by Rener and Ryon Gracie as part of their popular post-fight video series designed to deconstruct noteworthy displays of grappling in the wake of every major UFC event.
