Since returning to the lightweight division, Nate Diaz has won two straight fights in impressive fashion. With another victory over Jim Miller at Saturday's UFC on Fox 3, Diaz could put himself in position for a shot at the lightweight title against the winner of an upcoming rematch between champion Benson Henderson and former champion Frankie Edgar.
This weekend's event will also feature another bout that could produce a top contender in the welterweight division. Should Johny Hendricks follow up his knockout win over Jon Fitch with a victory over another perennial contender in Josh Koscheck, he would be lined up for a 170-pound title fight.
To promote the upcoming event, which will be held at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ, the UFC will hold a pre-fight press conference on Thursday at 1 p.m. ET.
Event headliners Diaz, Miller, Hendricks and Koscheck will join UFC president Dana White for the presser.
Video of the press conference will be streamed live on the below video player. After the presser, stay tuned to Bleacher Report MMA for all the latest on UFC on Fox and the rest of your MMA needs.
