UFC on FOX 3 will take place in New Jersey, it was confirmed today.

The UFC announced today that its third event on the FOX network will take place on Saturday, May 5 from the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, N.J.

A five-round lightweight bout between Whippany’s Jim Miller and Nate Diaz will headline the card, with the winner moving one step closer to a title shot.

The remaining main card bouts include: heavyweights Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson; welterweight contenders Josh Koscheck vs. Johny Hendricks; middleweights Rousimar Palhares vs. Alan Belcher. The action-packed main card will air live on FOX at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.

The card will also feature an exciting preliminary card, which will be confirmed at UFC.com in the coming weeks.

A press conference is planned for Tuesday, March 6 at 11 a.m. ET from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The event is FREE and open to the public. Doors for the public will open at 10:30 a.m.

The main card fighters will join UFC President Dana White at the presser.

 “For our third card on FOX, we have four great fights!” UFC President Dana White said. “Nate Diaz versus Jim Miller is the five-round main event and the winner will put himself in a position to fight for the title. Both of these guys fight at an incredible pace and are coming off great wins.

“We’ve got an amazing heavyweight fight between knockout artists Pat Barry and Lavar Johnson, as well as welterweight title contender fight between Josh Koscheck and Johny Hendricks. Johny just knocked out Koscheck’s training partner, Jon Fitch, and wants a title shot.

“To do it, he’s gotta get past Koscheck, who’s one of the best 170-pounders in the world. If that wasn’t enough, submission specialist Rousimar Palhares meets Alan Belcher in an exciting middleweight fight. I’m excited for fans in N.J. and N.Y. to experience the UFC live again.”

    You need two eyes to perceive depth, both are used to crtaee the sense of? depth. People with one eye can only see like a 2 dimensional picture. They can understand things are closer when they are bigger but do you know of any one eyed race drivers? Fighters? Anything where perceiving depth is important?Making excuses for the eye poke shows your argument is weak. If he couldn't perceive depth I would understand why he would need to stretch'.MMA is not porn. That is the point.

    this question is just wrong. MMA isn't Muay Thai it's mixed mitraal arts. Muay Thai is one art the art of punching, kicking, knees, and elbows (8 limbs is what it means).If a person ONLY studied Muay Thai it would be quite easy to eliminate the striking advantage by simply grabbing them and holding on. If you can't punch or kick you can't win a muay thai fight. The next progression is to take the person down to the ground Muay Thai is a standing striking art there is no ground grappling and no submission defense or attacks on the ground because these things are against the rules in Muay Thai.So what is effective against muay thai? One thing is being better at Muay Thai than the other guy. But as far as a system that would be effective Greco-Roman wrestling, Judo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Catch Wrestling, Sambo, or any of a dozen other grappling-based styles.

    How does anybody take a team that has acqreuid three former dhs over the age of 30 to play left-field, right-field and first base seriously? And not only play those positions, but to be the heart of the offense along with a rookie catcher called up at midseason?
