UFC On FOX 3 Results: Nate Diaz Chokes Out Jim Miller In Round 2 Of Main Event

UFC on FOX 3 from East Rutherford, New Jersey is now in the books. The main event featured Stockton native Nate Diaz going up against Jim Miller. The fight was set to go five rounds and would likely have lightweight title ramifications.

Round 1 began with plenty of standup before the two men got into an extended clinch against the cage. Diaz kept on the offensive during the clinch, lading over three times as many strikes as Miller while in the clinch. In the last 45 second, Diaz dropped Miller with a straight left, but Miller was able to turtle long enough to recover and get back to his feet, now taking Diaz down. Diaz was able to sweep and retain control by the time the round ended. The round likely easily went to Diaz.

The second round featured more of the same, with standup and clinches, with Diaz again landing many more strikes than Miller. Diaz also egged on Miller, as is typical, continually suckering Miller into charging him. Diaz finally got ground control and went for a power-guillotine, rolling over Miller and locking up his legs at the same time, forcing Miller to tap at 4:10 of Round 2 for the win.

Diaz now improved to 16-7 and looked very impressive in this showing.
