When Cole Miller beat Andy Ogle in October, he immediately advocated for his next fight.
"This is my 15th fight in the UFC," said Miller. "I'm over here looking at this guy - I know a show pony when I see one. And that's what Colin, Conor, whatever his name is… I know that's what he is."
Conor McGregor is recovering from ACL surgery and will not return until the spring.
Wednesday night when Miller earned the UFN 35 Submission of the Night over Sam Sicilia, Miller called out Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone.
"I’m trying to come up with some of these contenders," said Miller from the Octago. "There’s one guy in particular. I think everyone knows who it is. It’s you, Donald ‘Clownboy’ Cerrone. You been talking about coming down to 145, come on down.”
“I tell you what I’m gonna do. I’m gonna send Mike Dolce over to you and you can put the bill on me. He’s probably gonna tell you the same thing I’m gonna tell you: lay off them cheeseburgers and Twinkies homie.”
“This is not something new. This rivalry started in 2007. We had a couple out of the cage altercations over the past few years, and when he first came into the UFC he called me out, and I just wanted to return the favor. He's been talking about coming down to 145 pounds and fighting at featherweight. Talking about it is one thing, if he needs some motivation to come on down, then I gave it to him."
Before the fight can be discussed in earnest, Cerrone has to fight Adriano Martins at UFC on FOX 10 on Jan 25 in Chicago.
And, most unfortunately, Miller broke his hand in Wednesday's fight.

Another broke hand. On the left this time. At least I got sub of the night. Thanks for a great night @ufc!
There is no word yet on whether Miller will need surgery.
