UFC On Fox 3 Fight Card: Jim Miller Vs. Nate Diaz Tapped For May 5th

UFC on Fox 3 takes place May 5th, 2012, at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Less than a week out from UFC on Fox 2, promotion officials are already looking ahead.

The UFC’s third primetime effort, UFC on Fox 3, has been confirmed for May 5th, 2012 at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Additionally, a pair of match-ups between lightweight contenders Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller and bantamweight up-and-comers John Dodson vs. Darren Uyenoyama are slated for the network card.

UFC President Dana White announced the news via Twitter earlier this week.

Diaz (15-7) enters the big show after showing flashes of brilliance in recent destructions of Donald Cerrone and Takanori Gomi. The 26-year-old Stockton-native, a five-time “Fight of the Night” winner with a 4-2 record over his last six contests, would likely push his name into title contention with a victory.

Across the cage, Miller (21-3) hopes to do the same after re-righting his ship with a first-round submission of Melvin Guillard last weekend. Despite a grueling loss to Ben Henderson that prematurely halted his title run, the 28-year-old southpaw has ripped through nine wins in ten fights since mid-2009, and appears to be a man on a mission in the 155-pound division.

Dodson (12-5), meanwhile, charges back into the flyweight waters after storming to The Ultimate Fighter 14’s bantamweight crown. The 27-year-old, known as “The Magician,” emerged at the top of the season’s heap with impressive victories over Brandon Merkt, John Albert, Johnny Bedford and T.J. Dillashaw, despite largely competing above his natural weight.

He’ll face the 32-year-old Uyenoyama (7-3), a Strikeforce and DREAM veteran also looking to make a debut at 125 pounds. The winner of three of his last four fights, “BC” fought to a rigorous unanimous decision victory over Japanese superstar Norifumi Yamamoto as his introduction into the UFC.
