Lauzon: I'm going to submit Jim Miller


"I was very disappointed that Gray Maynard got hurt but at the same time, whenever I've had guys pull out last minute, I've had great fights. It happened when I fought Gabe Reudigar, it happened when I fought Jamie Varner, and it's going to happen when I fight Jim Miller.

"This is going to be 'Fight of the Night,' 100-percent. Jim Miller is tough, very good everywhere. Great jiu-jitsu, good wrestling, good stand-up; he's a southpaw, so that's a little different. He's had great fights, he's exciting, he goes for it -- the kind of fights I like to have.

"I am the most aggressive fighter in the UFC. No one is as aggressive as me. But Jim's aggressive too. I can use Jim Miller's aggressiveness against him. ... I'm confident I'm going to win this fight because I'm going to have so much fun during the fight. Nothing bad can happen in this fight. I'm going to have the time of my life from bell to bell.

"I'm going to submit Jim Miller."

I like Lauzon, but I think Jim Miller has the edge where ever the fight goes. Good that Joe is confident going into this fight, but Jim is slightly better than him in all aspects of mma. Both are good guys, kinda sucks that one of them has to lose.

This should be a great fight. Creepy is never in a boring fight and if I am not correct he has the reach advantage as well?If it stays on the feet give the slight edge to Joe on the ground think it will be fun scrambles all over the place but dont see either submitting the other unless one is dropped from a strike.Either way this will be a fun one.Millers wrestling can play a big factor and he could possibly win on TD's points. Which would suck

Joe is a master tactition ... I suspect he will actually try to keep it standing and bust up Miller on the feet.   War Creepy!!

Great matchup.   The significant edge in wrestling Miller has could very well be the deciding factor.

I would've laughed at what Lauzon said prior to the Nate Diaz-Miller fight.. It's possibly but still unlikely; Diaz is a high level grappler obviously.. Miller is one of my favorite 155ers but he has disappointed me as of late

He beat a TUF coach he was on TUF with.  How badass is that?
