Miller: Diaz can taunt and talk, I'll be punching him in the face

by Damon Martin | source: mmaweekly.com
 

“If I dictate the pace and do what I want to do, nobody’s going to beat me at that. You’re not going to beat me being defensive the whole fight.”

The other part about fighting a Diaz brother is their ability to verbally draw an opponent into a fight. Both Nate and Nick are infamous for shouting at their opponents during fights, calling them names, and basically trying to get the fly to fall into the spider’s web.

Well, the bad news for Nate Diaz in this fight is Jim Miller also grew up with two brothers, and he’s doubtful that there’s anything that can come from the mouth of the Stockton, Calif., native that he hasn’t already heard more than a few times.

“I grew up with three siblings so anything that’s said in there is sticks and stones. I just don’t worry about that stuff. Not give him the opportunity to talk. I’m not here to play the games and all that stuff. If it comes down to that, he can worry about talking. I’m not going to be. I’m going to try to punch him as hard as I can and choke him out,” said Miller.

“They’re terms of endearment in the Miller household. That’s how we show affection.”

It's not just the smack talk... It's the getting punched in the face repeatedly while your opponent is smack talking you that gets fighters in trouble with the Diaz bros...

I agree! Usually I'm have a good idea how nates fights will go, (him boxing someone up then subbing them, or him getting wrestlefucked)But this one seems even on the ground and it's harder to call.

fair enough.they have a common win (Guillard) and loss (Maynard), and with both guys having great BJJ and conditioning, it's not easy to pick a clear winner.gonna be a great card, i think....

It's how he finished gomi, and how he picked cerrone apart. Not just the fact that he beat them.He also subbed out guillard who is millers biggest win.I think the boss men are more impressed with Nate and it became clear when they said he has a title shot an miller wouldn't get one.Millers been impressive lately don't get me wrong but Diaz has been more impressive lately. We all know he has lost before but nates improved drastically no one can argue that.
