Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller – UFC on FOX on FOX 3

Aside from his previously noted boxing background, Diaz is also known for his world-class ground game. A black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Cesar Gracie, the younger Diaz brother owns 13 submission victories to his credit, an impressive feat given the fact that he holds 20 total career wins.

Taking on Jim Miller in the main event of UFC on FOX 3 in May 2012, however, Diaz would face off with one of the lightweight division’s very best submission artists, and frankly one of the best submission artists in UFC history.

Miller’s background proved to be no match for Diaz though, as the Stockton Bad Boy pulled off a slick guillotine choke in the second round to score a pivotal victory.

This victory, spectacular in its own right, would launch Diaz into a lightweight title fight with Benson Henderson at UFC on FOX 5.
