Once again, Jim Miller has proven his case that he deserves to be considered among the best in the world at 155 pounds. At UFC 124 he made quick work of hot prospect and devastating finisher Charles Oliveira.
Miller, the older and more experienced fighter, locked on a vicious kneebar to get the submission victory at 1:59 in the very first round.
Oliveira, the youngest fighter in the UFC, was previously undefeated through 14 fights. His last two fights in the UFC both earned him Submission of the Night honors. He is a young kid with tremendous tools who just needs more experience under his belt to become a great fighter.
Jim Miller already has that distinction. He has won his last six fights. He is 8-1 since joining the UFC. His only two career losses came at the hands of current UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar and to the No. 1 contender, the only man to defeat Edgar, Gray Maynard. Both losses came by way of decision.
So what happens next for each fighter?
