Jim Miller Looking To Get Back To Action After Setback

ufc 196

Jim Miller finds himself in a slump, but the veteran believes the only way he can snap out of it by fighting as often as possible.

Miller suffered his fourth loss in his last five fights Saturday night to Diego Sanchez at UFC 196.

The defeat was a decision setback for Miller (25-8), adding to losses suffered at the hands of Michael Chiesa, Beneil Dariush and Donald Cerrone around a split decision win vs. Danny Castillo last July.

“The choke I had was there and he had to respect it,” Miller said. “I felt him fading a bit, but it was hard to finish a high-level guy like (Sanchez).”

Prior to his recent struggles, Miller had put together a 12-2 record with one no-contest inside the Octagon.

“I’m just looking to get back soon and continue to fight on big cards,” Miller said. “The only thing I can guarantee is when I fight, I’ll fight my butt off.

“I can’t guarantee that I’ll win.”
