Jim Miller doesn’t just want to be a contender in the UFC’s lightweight division. No, Miller has his sights set on being the best there is.
On May 5, Miller will meet Nate Diaz in the main event of UFC on FOX 3 from East Rutherford, New Jersey. The bout will be five rounds, and it is likely to be for the No. 1 contender spot in the division; that, however, isn’t what pushes Miller.
“It’s not about the title shot, it’s about winning the title and being the best,” Miller said. “Being known as the best and having respect from everybody that you are the best.”
Miller is coming off a victory over Melvin Guillard, while Diaz stopped Donald Cerrone in his last fight. This should be an exciting contest, as both fighters know where they currently stand and where they hope to end up eventually.
