“I guess it’s going to be a good fight. Nate Diaz is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC and Jim Miller is a good obstacle to overcome. He has good Wrestling skills and heavy hands, he’s strong. We’re not underestimating him, but I guess Nate is better than him both on the stand-up and on the ground. I guess he deserves [the title shot] in case he gets this win. He defeated Cerrone, who was one of the firsts of the line and had a good performance against Gomi and now is fighting another contender. Cerrone is still a top guy, so if Nate can beat up these guys he deserves to be the next challenger”.
Initially promised a title shot should he get past Jim Miller in the UFC on FOX 3 main event, the Nate vs. Miller winner was passed up in favor of a rematch between Edgar and Henderson.
Should the UFC have stuck to their initial promise of a title shot for Nate or was Edgar vs. Henderson the right move?featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news, UFC on FOX, UFC on FOX 2, ufc on fox 3, UFC on Fuel, UFC on FX
