Sucks there rushing him. I think Miller takes this but I'm going to root for Oliveira, really like his style.

I'm kind of bummed for Miller. He should be fighting more veteran guys at this point in his career, not up and coming prospects.  I'd rather see Oliveira work his way up the ladder and Jim taking on more established guys and building his case for a title shot.

I don't think Miller will ever be afraid to scramble with anybody.

 Yeah a lot more upside winning for Charles than Jimmy.

THE Kevin Chandler - That is a pretty silly statement IMO. Just because you saw two quick subs from Oliviera does not make his ground game better that Bocek's. Besides the fact that Bocek got wrobbed in that fight with Jim Miller, his wrestling is obviously better. I would also say his BJJ is better too, but i'm not sure because we've only seen a very small window of Oliviera on the ground. But Mark's positioning and control are awesome, sets up his subs expertly instead of exploding into them which people probably won't appreciate as much, doesn't look as impressive in terms of flash.

charles was able to take down efrain and during scrambles he'll be really dangerous so miller better be ready for that. agree with the match up not helping miller, the UFC seems to not want to give miller a fight with guys like kenny. this fight seems to be made for charles to break out.
