UFC President Dana White has confirmed Saturday night’s main event between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller could very well provide a #1 contender in the lightweight division but only if Diaz wins. Since returning to lightweight from welterweight the 15-7 Diaz has defeated Takanori Gomi and the red-hot Donald Cerrone.
Miller (21-3) rebounded from an August 2011 loss to current UFC lightweight champ Benson Henderson by submitting Melvin Guillard earlier this year. He is 8-1 in his last nine fights with the lone setback coming to the dynamic title-holder.
