Dan Miller: 'If they call, I fight'

by Mike Chiappetta | source: mmafighting.com

Mike Chiappetta: Why do you think UFC came to you to take this fight?
Dan Miller: They know I won't turn a fight down, especially since I was training for a fight. I told them when [brother] Jim and I started, they can count on us any time. If they call, we'll fight. I don't think either of us has turned down a fight yet.

MC: Did you have to think about it this time?
DM: It could be a tough call depending on a few things, but usually it doesn't matter. Look at Jim, he once stepped in on eight days' notice after taking a month and a half off [against Matt Wiman, in 2008]. He didn't train for that long. He got married, had his honeymoon, then Thanksgiving, and they called him to fight. It's something we love, fighting. It's something I enjoy. it's 15 minutes of my life. I'm pretty sure i can go 15 minutes.

MC: Since you have that reputation and willingness, do you always keep in fight shape?
DM: I'm usually in fight shape, it depends on a few things. For example, after the Demian Maia fight, I broke my thumb and had to have surgery so i was out for a while, but most of the time, I'm right back in the gym a week or two weeks later. Usually I'm in shape and ready to go.

i highly doubt that Dana would cut Dan after not cutting him when he was on a 3 fight lose streak, especially since he praised him for taking this fight
