UFC On Fox 3: Dana White Says Diaz Vs. Miller Winner Gets Title Shot

At today's UFC on Fox 3 press conference in New York, UFC president Dana White confirmed what a lot of people had been thinking for a while. While he was clear that no one is sure what will be next for UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson, he did state that the winner of the UFC on Fox 3 main event between Nate Diaz and Jim Miller would be getting a title shot at some point:

"Well, I’m still obviously still dealing with the whole Frankie Edgar thing. I’m talking to Frankie and we’ll figure this thing out. We did, we said the winner of (Nate vs. Jim) would get the shot."

He was asked to clarify the point by a fan, Dana re-confirmed that the winner would indeed fight for the title. Henderson stated yesterday that he's ready to defend against anyone so it's possible that the winner of Diaz vs. Miller could meet Henderson for the title next. But it could also be (and is more likely to be) Frankie Edgar or Anthony Pettis. We'll have to see how it plays out, but the five-rounder on May 15th just became a little more interesting.
