UFC 200: Jim Miller is “Feeling Pretty Good”, Reconsidered Thoughts of Retiring
By FCF Staff
Jim Miller recently admitted he was thinking about making UFC 200 his last bout, but the rugged vet has reconsidered, after having a solid camp for the July 9th card.
The 32 year-old lightweight has been booked to face former PRIDE champ Takanori Gomi on Saturday, after dropping consecutive fights to Diego Sanchez and Michael Chiesa. After going 3-1, with 1 no contest in 2012 and 2013, Miller has gone 2-4 since. Recently the New Jersey fighter spoke to MMA Junkie.com, and while discussing his future, Miller stated:
“There was a side of me that was like, ‘Eh, maybe that’s (UFC 200) time to hang ’em up,’” Miller said. “But I don’t think that’s yet. I’ve been feeling pretty good throughout this camp.”
Gomi, meanwhile, has been stopped by Myles Jury and Joe Lauzon in his last two bouts. The 37 year-old has gone 2-3 in his last 5 bouts.
