Outside of lightweight Nate Diaz (Pictured) cementing the fact he’s one of the division’s best grapplers and solidifying his next dibs status at “UFC on FOX: Diaz vs. Miller,” Saturday’s event will be remembered as the night of the upset specials.
Of the four fights that aired live during FOX’s broadcast, Johny Hendricks was the lone odds-on favorite to pull through – and he only managed to do so with a highly-controversial split decision victory over Josh Koscheck.
