UFC FN 60: Cole Miller Says “The Good Days” Keep Him Motivated After Numerous Setbacks
By FCF Staff
When Cole Miller takes on Max Holloway tomorrow night at UFC Fight Night 30, the 30 year-old featherweight will be competing in his 17th bout with the promotion.
Yes, Miller made his official UFC debut back in 2007, and since then the well rounded fighter has posted a solid record of 10-6.
While Miller has recorded more wins in the UFC then many, and holds a winning record, the fighter has encountered numerous setbacks over the years. Not only has Miller incurred several injuries and underwent multiple surgeries, but he’s also had his well documented issues with how judges score fights.
Recently “Magrinho” spoke with UFC.com about his career, and discussed what keeps him motivated to keep fighting after all the setbacks. Here is some of what Miller had to say:
“It’s the good days,” Miller said. “When you get that glory and you do get that money, that’s nice. But honestly, being able to take what you work so hard for and take what your coaches and your instructors are instructing you to do and being able to apply it at this level against guys that know what you’re going to do to them, and you still do it anyway, that’s the payoff.”
Miller is coming off consecutive victories over Andy Ogle and Sam Sicilia, but hasn’t fought in over a year, due to a thumb injury he incurred last summer.
