After respective wins over Donald Cerrone and Melvin Guillard, Nate Diaz and Jim Miller have separated themselves as two of the top contenders in the ultra-competitive lightweight division. As such, the two entertaining 155-pound fighters will meet in the main event of UFC on Fox 3 with a title shot potentially on the line.

Let's take a look at which fighter has a better chance at taking one step closer to a lightweight title fight.
