UFC on Fox 3The UFC was back in East Rutherford, N.J., on Saturday night for UFC on Fox 3: Diaz vs. Miller. It marked the first time the promotion had been in East Rutherford since UFC 32, featuring Tito Ortiz vs. Elvis Sinosic, more than a decade ago.

Nate Diaz and Jim Miller wasn’t a championship fight, although a title shot was on the line for Diaz, but it was a strong enough main event to draw 10,788 fans for a live gate of $1.1 million, according to UFC president Dana White.

Diaz took the fight to Miller like no one had before. In fact, Diaz’s fight finishing guillotine choke, was the first time the New Jersey native had been finished in his professional career.

Welterweight fighter Johny Hendricks also put himself somewhere at the top of the list for a UFC lightweight title shot, depending upon whether or not he’s willing to wait around for Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar to rematch later this year.
