Surely by now you know of the UFC's trip to the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J., on May 5 for its Fox card headlined by Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller.

Well, the press conference to kick off the buzz will be Tuesday, March 6, at Radio City Music Hall. It starts at 11 a.m. and is open to the public (doors open at 10:30). So call in sick, go to work late or schedule a "conference call" or "off-site meeting" and come watch us (the media) ask them (the fighters) questions. You'll probably have a chance to ask a few questions as well, so start thinking of them now and make them good. Please, don't anyone ask if they can get a picture with one of the fighters.

Fighters scheduled to attend the UFC on Fox 3 press conference are:

Nate Diaz, Jim Miller, Pat Barry, Lavar Johnson, Josh Koscheck, Johny Hendricks, Rousimar Palhares and Alan Belcher.

Tickets for the fights go on sale March 9.
