UFC on Fox 3 main event winner Nate Diaz will not fight fellow lightweight contender Anthony Pettis to decide the next number one contender. Nate Diaz will take his previously promised title shot and await the winner of UFC 150’s rematch between Frankie Edgar and champion Ben Henderson.
UFC President Dana White had initially announced the winner of tonight’s main event would face Pettis before the Fox telecast, but stated in the post-fight conference that the move was not official. White went on to say that the bout was never mandated but only proposed if Diaz wanted to stay busy.
Diaz defeated lightweight contender Jim Miller earlier tonight in the UFC on Fox 3 main event in impressive fashion, as he became the first man to ever submit Jim Miller.
