UFC On FOX 3: Nate Diaz Will Headline Card, Josh Koscheck In Co-Main Event

The full card for UFC on FOX 3 has been announced and two notable Bay Area fighters will have top slots on the nationally-televised event.

Tim Burke of Bloody Elbow relays the full card, which will air live on FOX on May 5 and emanate from East Rutherford, NJ.

The main event on the card will feature Stockton native Nate Diaz taking on Jim Miller in a five-round fight to possibly determine the next challenger for the UFC lightweight title.

The co-main will feature Josh Koscheck also continuing his quest to return to title contention. Koscheck has deep ties to the Bay Area, as the polarizing fighter trained at the prestigious American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose for years before a recent and acrimonious split. Koscheck will take on the 12-1 Johny Hendricks.
