After losing two straight fights to top contenders in the middleweight division of the UFC, Dan Miller's job was on the line, it seemed, going into his fight with Michael Bisping at UFC 114.

Despite losing the entertaining fight via unanimous decision, Dan Miller will remain on the UFC roster, according to a statement released by the UFC today.

This comes as a surprise to many, including this writer, although we shouldn't really be surprised, considering Keith Jardine's recent loss streak. Maybe the UFC likes what they see from Dan Miller in terms of improvement? Only time will tell.

This is good news for a UFC middleweight division that is severely lacking in quality competitors. Dan Miller, though not an elite fighter by any means, can provide a good matchup for anyone.

Details on his next fight are non existent, possibly because it hasn't been arranged yet, but a fight between Miller and TUF 7 alum, Gerald Harris, could be on the horizon if Harris wins his fight against Dave Branch at UFC 116.

Dan Miller could also be pitted against Patrick Coté in a loser goes home fight.

Only time will tell. Are there any fights you would like to see Dan Miller in? Sound off in the comments below.
