Miller: I want to fight Cerrone, in UFC or not

Saturday, February 01, 2014

UFC featherwight Cole Miller recently appeared on Sherdog's Beatdown Radio and said that he and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone are going to fight, one way or another.

“I saw where he said he was considering dropping down to 145,” said Miller as transcribed by MMAMania. “It's not like I just called out some dude in a weight class that's not in mine. He was the one that brought it up, so I was like, 'oh, that's a fight.'

“That's a little bit of a personal beef, I guess you could say, that's been going on for quite some time. I've made the statement that before my day is done in this world, we're going to throw down. It may or may not happen in the UFC. It doesn't look like it's going to happen now, and honestly, I didn't even know he had a fight coming up this (past) weekend when I made that statement.”

“I know that my skill set is top 10. I know that I'm a top-10 contender with my striking and with my grappling. It's just about mixing it together in the cage on fight day and piecing it together. It just seems like this past year, 2013, and now starting 2014, things are finally starting to click for me and I wanted that to be known. If you just sit there and you be quiet and you don't speak up, then who's going to know?”

With bad blood and both fighters on a two-fight win streak, this is a fight that should get made.
