Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight mainstay, Jim Miller, hasn’t competed since a unanimous decision loss to Anthony Pettis at the UFC 213 pay-per-view (PPV) event back in early July.
And while two months on the sidelines isn’t exactly forever, Miller (28-10, 1 NC) has a staggering 27 fights inside the Octagon, and you don’t get that kind of number by sitting on your ass and dreaming of big fights.
In fact, the longtime lightweight is even willing to jump up to 170 for his next payday.
The good news is, there are plenty of available opponents ready, willing, and able to throw down. That includes Steven Ray, Dan Hooker, and Chad Laprise, just to name a few.
That means it’s up to UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby to bridge the gap on social media and help these fighters put pen to paper. If and when that happens remains to be seen, but one thing you can be guaranteed when Miller fights is that you’ll never be subjected to a boring fight.
But do any of those potential opponents tickle your proverbial fancy?
