Nate Diaz takes home Submission of the Night honors for finish of Jim Miller

Few fighters have been as hot as Nate Diaz as of late. In addition to picking up his third straight win over a widely respected adversary Saturday night at UFC on FOX 3 the 27-year old also earned a third consecutive event-specific bonus, scoring Submission of the Night honors with his second-round Guillotine Choke of Jim Miller. The award was the ninth of his UFC career and fourth pertaining to tap-outs.

Diaz received $65,000 for the distinction as did the evening’s other stand-out performers receiving a bonus nod.

Knockout of the Night went to Lavar Johnson for his finish of Pat Barry, his fifteenth strike-based stoppage in seventeen total victories. Meanwhile, Fight of the Night was handed to flyweights Louis Gaudinot and John Lineker after turning in nine-plus back-and-forth minutes capped off by the former choking the latter out cold with less than ten seconds remaining in the second stanza.

    I see a championship in the future of Diaz.

  • I do too. Him vs Edgar or Benson holds alot of intrigue. Diaz just outclassed Jim Miller on every lwvel better than anyone has ever done
    No easy feat

  • Dr.Stoppage says:

    From the prefight hype to the prefight weigh in to the non gloves touch to the striking to the taunting to the sub to the post fight classiness,I think Nate Diaz handled himself like a true professional tonight. I especially like how there were no “WHERE YOU AT,HENDERSON! “,type comments, and it sounds like he’s just willing and prepared to fight the next contender in line. He’s not screaming for a title shot right now.

    Nate Diaz is officially one scary dude in this division.

  • Lord Faust says:

    Very happy for Nate. Love both the Diaz brothers, but Nate seems to have the art of handling himself in public figured out.

    I honestly expected this to go into championship rounds, possibly a decision.

  • AlphaOmega says:

    I don’t like the Diaz bros, but Nate is starting to change my mind since he’s becoming a lot more respectful and classy after the fights.

  • Big Stank says:

    Nate has always been classy after his fights. It’s like he said, he’s preparing for war and he needs that hate for fuel. I don’t mind it at all. Who says u have to like the guy your fighting. After its all said and done, he’s the first to stick his hand out for a handshake. Even after the Cerrone fight. Pure class. I hope people that are ignorant start seeing this kid for who HE is, not his brother but a future lightweight champion.
