“If I dictate the pace and do what I want to do, nobody’s going to beat me at that. You’re not going to beat me being defensive the whole fight.”

The other part about fighting a Diaz brother is their ability to verbally draw an opponent into a fight. Both Nate and Nick are infamous for shouting at their opponents during fights, calling them names, and basically trying to get the fly to fall into the spider’s web.

Well, the bad news for Nate Diaz in this fight is Jim Miller also grew up with two brothers, and he’s doubtful that there’s anything that can come from the mouth of the Stockton, Calif., native that he hasn’t already heard more than a few times.

“I grew up with three siblings so anything that’s said in there is sticks and stones. I just don’t worry about that stuff. Not give him the opportunity to talk. I’m not here to play the games and all that stuff. If it comes down to that, he can worry about talking. I’m not going to be. I’m going to try to punch him as hard as I can and choke him out,” said Miller.

“They’re terms of endearment in the Miller household. That’s how we show affection.”

Love this guy.

War Miller!

Aside from a point sparring match, I dont see how Nate can stop Miller. He is a beast.

Both Diaz brothers are overrated. Not saying that they dont show up and fight, but take away their hippy letuce habits and their mean mugging and you have B level fighters.

 I like Miller but your brother making fun of you isn't quite the same as a dude mocking you as he's punching you in the face.....

I grew up constantly fighting with my brothers as well but I can't imagine that would prepare me to not get bothered by Diaz throwing his hands up and talking sh*t on me while he's beating me up.

I'm not saying Diaz is going to be able to get under his skin, but equating the two doesn't really make sense IMO.

I see Diaz out-boxing him, Miller out-working him, and this being a FANTASTIC mixed martial arts fight.  I think it's all going to come down to Miller's wrestling.  If he can manage to hold Diaz down, do some damage, and tire him out, I think he'll take the decision.  If he can't keep him down, or Diaz works a very active guard, I see Diaz taking the W.

Somehow I don't think anything Dan said or did to Jim growing up will prepare him for the beating Nate will lay down on him, but that's just me.

The Diaz brothers talk when a guy wont engage. That isnt going to be a problem in this fight.

Because the UFC plays favorites. Simple as that. It isnt who deserves the fight, it is who can we sell to the casual fan.

Nate Diaz doesn't have time to talk, he's too busy throwing punches.

So if Miller and Henderson win you'd want to see a rematch?

yeah, fair enough.

i'd really like to see them to try to implement some legitimate rankings, but i guess with the high injury rate, that might not be realistic...

 Miller had his contender match and lost and then choked out Guillard. Why is everyone so up in arms about Nate getting a title shot over Miller? Miller should have long since got his title shot even before the Benson fight but he ended up losing that fight.

Diaz just beat Gomi and Cerrone who was on his way to a contender spot as well.

i like nate but I'll admit it's hard sometimes when he starts showing signs of being like nick with stupid statements. But nate is more level headed I think, at least he comes off that way, and understands his role.

that being said, I don't see how in the world he has a prayer Saturday. Nate won't be shit talking anyone, he'll be doing windshield wipers trying not to get hurt.

O boy that win over gomi was huge lol what a joke. <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>


and getting knocked down nearly 10 times by Cerrone doesn't help, either...

Is this the same gomi who is 2-3 in the UFC? Thats a great win to get a title shot. <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>



Compared to Jim Miller's huge wins over who? Guillard is his best victory, and I'd say Nate's win over Cerrone is better than or at least equal to that. Add in the fact that Miller's already recently lost to the current champ, and it makes sense.

And are people really trying to argue that Cerrone somehow won the fight with Diaz?
