This fight is the one that makes the most sense. Maynard has a win over Miller and is coming off a loss against lightweight champion Frankie Edgar.
Miller lost to him back in 2009, so enough time has gone by that fans could be interested in a rematch.
Miller lost to him via unanimous decision, but history doesn't have to repeat itself, and if Miller gets the fight and wins, he will have removed one of the three losses on his record.
One of the other two was against Frankie Edgar back before either one was in the UFC. If he can beat Maynard, he sets up a perfect storyline and reason to why he should fight the champion.
Maynard is a big name and just came off a thrilling trilogy. It will be tough to convince the former challenger to rematch a man he already beat.
The only thing trickier then getting that fight would be winning it.
If Miller can do both, he just might find himself fighting for UFC gold.
