Fuck East Coast and West Coast Times
Why you should watch:
Nate Diaz returned to the lightweight division after an unsuccessful stint at welterweight and has rattled off two consecutive wins over PrideFC legend Takanori Gomi and WEC favorite Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone.
Diaz will be facing a top 10 lightweight in Jim Miller and will have a lot to prove in the fight. Can he avoid being taken down and held down by Miller? If he's taken down, can he get up to avoid the wrestlefucking?
Nate Diaz has a very crowd pleasing style employing the Stockton Slap to great effect combined with his fantastic submission game. Most fighters are afraid to take him down, but Jim Miller possess good wrestling and BJJ to avoid Nate's submissions.
Dana White has promised young Nate Diaz the next title shot if he defeats Jim Miller. Joe Silva had to remind Dana that they already promised Showtime Pettis the next title shot, so it remains to be seen what the significance of this fight will be.
Frank Edgar and Benson Henderson have to complete fights 2 and 3 of their trilogy before we can move forward in the lightweight division.
Don't be scared homie!

Does Dana "Fucking" White Hate the fans?
Compared to Exhibit 2:
Compared to fucking Exhibit 3:
I'd have to say the answer is emphatically YES. It should come as no surprise however because the pay-per-view Ultimate cards are just as diluted. Dana White doesn't give a damn about any of you fans.
