Miller: Diaz had my number
Miller (21-4) gave all the credit to his opponent, Nate Diaz (16-7).
“Nate controlled the fight from bell to bell,” he said. “He kept the momentum and never let me get any significant shots in there. Nate fought a beautiful fight and had my number.”
An audible “Let’s go Miller” chant broke out two minutes into the second round. Diaz also began dramatically taunting Miller around that time, dropping his hands and gesturing toward Miller.
“It didn’t affect me,” Miller said. “It was the strikes he was landing that were affecting me. I shouldn’t have given him the opportunity to be speaking.”
