Miller surpises Oliveira with knee bar for submission victory

by Steve Cofield | source:

Charles Oliveira is a great prospect/ The key wor\d is prospect. The 21-year-old was facing a guy with seven UFC wins and a well-rounded game.

Oliveira took Miller lightly on the ground and paid for it. The New Jersey-native, working from top control, transitioned to an ankle lock. Oliveira didn't do much to extricate himself, and Miller cranked back with a kneebar. Oliveira tapped almost immediately to giving Miller the win at 1:59 of the first round.

George S is also right there. Dunham and George already got matches line up though. Maybe have Dunham fight Miller if they Dunham wins his next fight.

Very nice toehold counter w/ kneebar finish. I like that step over toehold from the top myself. I ain't no Jim Miller though that's for sure.

Miller should be very close to a title shot. Who else is close? Evan Dunham?

They should have Miller fight George S in AUS. Use it as a #1 cont fight and have that winner fight the winner of the WEC-UFC unification title bout.

Miller might have been a big step up for Oliveira. But sometimes a loss can be the best thing that will ever happen to you, or worse. I hope Oliveira will come back stronger next time.
