Miller admits that in the past he's always taken a 'wait and see' approach, but he understands that MMA is a business, fights are competition, and it's nothing personal to say you'd take the fight.
"Honestly, now that he's got the title, I feel like such a (expletive) saying that I'd fight him, or that we'd fight, stuff like that. Back before he had (the title) it was like if our paths meet then we do it," Miller told MMAWeekly Radio.
"You figure we fought before, we beat each other up in the room, so why not really get paid to do it?"
Edgar actually handed Miller his first career loss back in 2006, which was well before the time the two New Jersey natives began training with each other. While Miller says Edgar hasn't been in the gym with him as much lately, he still considers the UFC champ a friend and good training partner.
"We don't train together every day, we don't train together that much anymore. The best thing for him was training for B.J. for eight months, and he's totally reworked his schedule. He's working with Phil Nurse now, and he gets into the city training at Renzo's and stuff, so there really hasn't been much time for the two of us to train together," Miller commented.
Looking back at their fight from a few years ago, Miller can still see glimpses of those two fighters competing in the UFC today, and even though they are much different and improved from that fight, he still sees it being a great match-up.
"It was a fun fight last time, we match up so well, that's why we're good training partners," he said. "We push each other in every area, so if we fight again it will be a fast paced fight, and a hell of a (fight). One fans would be talking about."
