Miller wants McGregor to earn his hype

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

Cole Miller is focused on his upcoming fight with Sam Sicilia, but in the back of his head, Conor McGregor is just rubbing him the wrong way. Miller, a long time veteran of the sport, believes that McGregor is receiving to much praise and attention based off his nationality, and that he needs to grind his way up, just like he did:

As usual, Miller will take his frustrations out on his next opponent in Sicilia. But he hasn’t lost sight of his previous target: McGregor.

“You come in and you say you’re getting ready to fight (Jose) Aldo, and you call out the entire top 10,” Miller said. “Two of those guys are my teammates, and you’re going to call all of them out, and not even going to finish this guy that you just fought, who is not an experienced fighter – who is actually getting all his experience in the UFC.

“And you’re going to get the fast track? No, I don’t think so. He might be able to beat my ass. But that’s my point: Come beat my ass, and then you can move up the ladder.”
