Cole Miller started his UFC career in 2007, debuting on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 Finale. Approaching six years later and Miller is not pleased with his turnaround for fights.
“I should have 20 fights and I don’t,” said Miller to MMA Fighting. “I have 13 fights in six years. That’s two fights a year, so I’ve had four surgeries since being with the organization. I go six to nine months constantly, due to my reckless style.”
Of those 13 fights, Miller has left the victor eight times. He has six bonuses, including his fourth Submission of the Night thanks to a rear naked choke in the last minute of round one against Bart Palaszewski. It was Miller’s first featherweight win since returning to that weight class last year.
Palaszewski now has three straight UFC losses and is 1-3 for the promotion sine they merged with the WEC. The other two losses came by decision to Hatsu Hioki and Diego Nunes.
They met on the Facebook portion of TUF 17 Finale. It was this past Saturday, April 13, from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV.
