Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar calls Nate Diaz 'a stud' after UFC on FOX stoppage over Jim Miller

Well it looks like Nate Diaz impressed more than just the UFC brass this past Saturday night (May 5, 2012) with his second round guillotine choke finish against Jim Miller in the main event of UFC on Fox 3.

With the victory, Diaz will be earning a title shot against the winner of the Frankie Edgar vs. Benson Henderson 2, which is hopefully going down later this summer.

One of those combatants, the former UFC lightweight champion, Edgar, tells Fuel TV's Ariel Helwani that he's taking his hat off for Diaz's performance on the big stage.

"Nate [Diaz] is a stud, man. He's kind of a teammate so I was happy for him. Man, it was a hell of a performance, it really was... Jim [Miller] is tough as nails. I didn't know what the outcome would be, but I definitely didn't think Jim would get finished. Hats off to Nate, man. He's a stud for sure."

"The Answer" also discusses the injury which is delaying his title rematch against Henderson in the full video posted after the jump:
