UFC on FX 1 Video: Jim Miller Feels This Victory Builds Himself Back

Steven MuehlhausenContributor IIIJanuary 22, 2012

UFC on FX 1 press conference with Jim Miller as talks about his victory over Melvin Guillard in the main event, if he feels like he redeemed himself, where he stacks in the lightweight division and more.

Miller on how felt to get rocked for the first time in his career: "I don't really remember much from it to be honest. It just kinda went into work mode and doing what I'm comfortable doing at that point. Those punches you don't feel. That first overhand, I'm pretty sure he had to broken his hand on my head because my head still hurts. The one he dropped me with, I didn't feel and I really don't know how I took his back. But I knew when I was there, I wanted to squeeze as hard as I could."

If the win helps him build himself up after his loss to Benson Henderson: "Hopefully a little bit. Melvin is gonna be a perennial contender in this division. He can beat anybody at lightweight on any given night. It's good to have a win over him. I'm proud of myself to be able to get hit and knocked down and still be able to do what I had to do to get the victory in there. So hopefully those wins I had before my August fight don't go away."
