Nate Diaz takes home Submission of the Night honors for finish of Jim Miller

Few fighters have been as hot as Nate Diaz as of late. In addition to picking up his third straight win over a widely respected adversary Saturday night at UFC on FOX 3 the 27-year old also earned a third consecutive event-specific bonus, scoring Submission of the Night honors with his second-round Guillotine Choke of Jim Miller. The award was the ninth of his UFC career and fourth pertaining to tap-outs.

Diaz received $65,000 for the distinction as did the evening’s other stand-out performers receiving a bonus nod.

Knockout of the Night went to Lavar Johnson for his finish of Pat Barry, his fifteenth strike-based stoppage in seventeen total victories. Meanwhile, Fight of the Night was handed to flyweights Louis Gaudinot and John Lineker after turning in nine-plus back-and-forth minutes capped off by the former choking the latter out cold with less than ten seconds remaining in the second stanza.
