Main card (Fox 8 p.m. Eastern)
Nate Diaz (16-7) vs Jim Miller (21-4)
1st round – No glove touching as they go to the corners to await the start of the fight. Miller comes out with a big leg kick that finds its mark and Diaz answers with some sharp hooks. Miller continues to try to work the fight to the cage where he lands knees on the thighs of Diaz. Diaz breaks out of the clinch and makes it back his range where the two exchange. Diaz secures a front headlock on Miller and lands a nice knee for his troubles. Miller escapes and Diaz begins to pour on the crisp punches and eventually drops Miller with a straight left. Miller is down on his knees near the cage and Diaz is on top of him trying to take his back. Miller intelligently defends and it’s almost Diaz who ends up giving his back. The fighters begin to scramble as the round comes to a close.
2nd round- Fighters are both active out of the corner. Nate pins Miller against the cage for some dirty boxing. Miller escapes and lands a shot of his own. Fighters exchange on their feet for a while with neither man holding a clear advantage. Diaz seems to loosen up a little and has apparently broken Millers nose as he is breathing with his mouth wide open. Diaz begins taunting Miller with his hands down and begins landing his shots seemingly at will. Miller closes the gap and attempts to shoot on Diaz when Diaz secures a guillotine choke. Miller scrambles but Diaz stays with him finally has the choke locked in and Miller is forced to tap at 4:09 of round 2.
