The Next Challenger for the Lightweight Title?

Diaz

It was announced today that Jim Miller will be taking on Nate Diaz at the third event to air on Fox. The winner is expected to challenge for the lightweight title, and I can’t think of anyone else who would. I guess I jumped the gun in my preview of Miller’s fight with Guillard where I thought Miller — with a win — could be next in line for the title.

I definitely think that this will be an excellent fight. Without getting too in depth now, I think Miller will take this by decision. Miller will have to face the challenge of someone with a significant height and reach advantage. Despite the flurries that Diaz throws, I don’t think Miller will have a fear of being knocked out. Miller has a very solid chin as shown this past Friday.

Miller will probably work to take this fight to the ground. Diaz’s lanky frame may present some issues, and he also has an excellent jiu-jitsu game so I don’t think Miller will sub him.

More on this fight as it gets closer to fight night on May 5th.
