Dana White: Nate Diaz will fight the winner of Benderson vs. Edgar IIPosted on August 11, 2012, 12:49 PM by Anton Gurevich
Speaking pre-fight on Fuel TV, UFC President Dana White has officially announced that Nate Diaz is the one to face the winner of tonight's UFC 150 main event scrap between Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar in Denver, Colorado.
Diaz solidified his place in the mix for a shot at the title with three consecutive victories inside the Octagon. Cesar Gracie product got his hand raised against Takanori Gomi, Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller. Guillotine Choke victory over Jim Miller proved Nate Diaz is currently at the peak of his form as a Mixed Martial Artist.
Diaz moved down to Lightweight from Welterweight, after suffering back-to-back defeats against Rory MacDonald and Dong Hyun-Kim.
Melving Guillard and Donald Cerrone square off in tonight's co-main event, but it seems like the winner will find himself at least one fight away from the title shot.
