Jim Miller withstood some powerful striking from Melvin Guillard in the first couple minutes of their main event fight at Friday night's UFC on FX 1 card and then made Guillard pay, submitting him with a rear-naked choke in the first round.
It was a great showing on the ground for Miller, and a demonstration once again that while Guillard is a quick and powerful striker, he simply doesn't have a good enough ground game to compete at a high level.
"I don't get knocked down often, and he knocked me down. So he hits hard," Miller said of Guillard after the fight,. "I just found a way to the back. That's something I've always been able to do and from there it was just securing a position. I'm pretty confident that I'm the most dangerous lightweight in the world and I'm willing to make you guys believe that in here."
