After a stunning performance against Jim Miller at this weekend's UFC on FOX 3, Nate Diaz will be next in line for a UFC title shot as he awaits the conclusion of the lightweight division's latest saga between champion Benson Henderson and former champ Frankie Edgar.
The win, Diaz's biggest to date, is a testament to the sheer depth in the 155 lb. division, which continues to be the most stacked in all of MMA. Add in recent wins by some of Bellator's biggest stars and the lightweight rosters have never looked better.
With some important fights coming up in both the UFC's and Strikeforce's lightweight divisions, don't expect the 155ers to slow their pace down anytime soon.
