The AMA Fight Club veteran will take on Nate Diaz at UFC on FOX 3, in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sat., May 5, 2012. There has been much chatter, hinting that the winner of the fight would likely be next in line for a shot at the belt. During an interview with Spike TV's "MMA Uncensored," Miller said that he knows the possibility for a title shot is there, but he's doing his best not to look past a very game opponent:

"It's been said that I might be getting a title shot, but I honestly don't care at this point. I'm fed up talking about it. I just wanna get in and fight on the 5th. After that, we can talk about it. I try not to (look past Diaz). Nate is a tough fight, and that's where my focus lies. The title picture got so bottle-necked, with the rematches, and everybody lost. In my opinion, if you have under five UFC fights, let alone wins, you shouldn't be considered for a title shot yet."

If Miller had been in any other division, he'd probably have already had a crack at the title by now. It's just the nature of the very tough lightweight group of fighters in which he's been placed. Miller talked about what it's been like to have compete for attention with the UFC's elite:

"It's just been tied up so much in this division. If it was another weight class, I probably would have fought for a title, Melvin (Guillard) would've probably fought for a title. There were a couple guys who easily could have done it, even (Donald) Cerrone, you know, 5-0. Now, everybody's coming off losses. A win over Melvin and a win over Nate, those are good wins.

Is there a normal Diaz out there besides Camron? Nick and Nate think the world owes them something and hates everyone, and Diego loves everything from chewed bubble gum under a desk to the word YES ! Diaz = Nucking Futts?

Oh please not another rematch...

The winner of this fight should fight pettis and the winner of that should fight for the title.

If Edgar wins the rematch then Bendo is gonna ask for a rematch, and this nonsense is gonna continue.

More than likely though Bendo will win and then who wants to see bendo/miller 2 again?

Hopefully Nate wins and puts this rematch nonsense to bed.

They need to stop giving instant rematches Especially in this divison. So many fighters careers have basically been put on hold in their prime since bj vs Frankie 1. 5 title fights later; fighters to fight in the next 5 fights; Frankie, gray, bendo. Guys like millrr are getting fucked. Phone Post

We can't get a fresh title fight at 155 because Edgar has to fight each opponent 3 times. Enough with the rematches, Bendo won, let Edgar go back down and win a couple to get back to the top. In the mean time Bendo defends against a fresh, deserving opp. My .02.

I think Miller gets over looked quite a bit at times. Dude has more W's at 155 over the last 3 years than any one not named Ben Henderson. If Nate over looks Miller he is in for a rude awakeneing. Nate has improved in some areas but his wrestling is still very very suspect. I expect a good fight either way but don't be so quick to discount Miller.

 He already got beat pretty badly by bendo, and he is smaller than some 155 pd guys. I am suprised he does not just drop down and fight aldo, that would make more sense I would think

Miller was sick when he fought Bendo and he is by no means a small LW

Miller was hunting Bendo around the cage in the third round. Bendo also never came close to finishing that fight.
