With the second UFC on FOX card just days away, the UFC is wasting no time in preparing for their third trip onto prime-time television.
After quickly dispatching Melvin Guillard at last weekend’s UFC on FX event, Jim Miller has once again entered title contention, and a win over his next opponent would put him at the front of the line for a UFC title shot.
That win is going to have to be earned the hard way, however, as Miller is now set to fight Stockton native Nate Diaz.
Diaz is quietly becoming a smaller version of his brother Nick, using precise boxing and underrated jiu jitsu skills to destroy any opponent put in his path.
After a two-fight skid at welterweight in early 2011, Diaz decided to make the cut down to his optimum fighting weight of 155 lbs and the results have been spectacular with quality wins over Takanori Gomi and Donald Cerrone.
Now with both fighters well on their way to a shot at UFC gold, the only thing standing in their way is each other.
The fight is an interesting one, as both fighters are extremely well-rounded and possess the skills to finish fights on a regular basis, but their styles are vastly different.
Whichever one of these two men is able to implement their game plan and take the fight to where they are superior will win, and this article will break down whether Miller or Diaz has the advantage come May 5th.
