Bobby Green, UFC 300, Jim Miller

Bobby Green upsets and batters Jim Miller in dominant victory at UFC 300

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to us tonight, April 13, 2024, for the biggest event mixed martial arts has ever put on, UFC 300, going down live from the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.

Headlining the event is a light-heavyweight title bout between former UFC middleweight champion and current UFC light-heavyweight champion Alex Pereira (9-2), who aims to make the first defense of his title in tonight’s main event opposing no. 1 ranked former UFC light-heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill (13-1).

Co-headlining the event is also a title fight, this one going down at 115 lbs as UFC strawweight champion Weili Zhang (24-3) is set to battle no. 1 ranked Yan Xiaonan in the first ever China versus China title fight in UFC history.

Our feature fight of the evening comes in the lightweight division between no. 2 ranked Justin Gaethje (25-4) and former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway (25-7), who will slug it out for the BMF title in our third PPV bout of the evening.

The second bout to go down on the early prelims tonight also came in the lightweight division, this one between a pair of true 155 lb OG’s in Bobby Green (32-15-1) and Jim Miller (37-18).

Miller is the only man to ever compete at UFC 100, UFC 200, and now UFC 300, and he’d gone 5-1 with five finishes over his last six outings going in. Green on the other hand had gone 2-1 over his last three, picking up stoppage victories over Tony Ferguson and Grant Dawson last year in 2023 before losing to Jalin Turner in December.

Official Result: Bobby Green def. Jim Miller via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-25, 29-26)

Miller had a great start to this fight, opening up the bout with a nasty calf kick, soon after dropping Green momentarily with a punch after catching a kick coming his way. Green started to pick Miller apart as the first round went on, landing a few heavy left hands, but was wobbled with a hard right hand thrown by Miller in the final seconds.

Green really started to bust Miller up in the second, landing a number of punches that bloodied him up throughout the round. Miller continued landing his leg kicks, and landed a couple good punches himself in exchanges, but was ultimately pieced apart through the middle stretch.

Green landed a stinging one-two early on in the third and final round, Miller returning fire with a heavy left hand of his own. Green continued walking forward and picking Miller apart until Miller hurt him with a counter about three minutes into the third, Green of which tied up with Miller in order to recover.

From here Green separated and got back to his striking, where he badly hurt and dropped Miller with a combination, beating on him until the final bell sounded.

It’s surprising Miller didn’t shoot on one single takedown in this fight. After a good opening round, though two of the three judges didn’t score it for him, he just got out-struck and didn’t attempt one takedown.

What’s equally as surprising however he’s taking this kind of damage at 40 years old without being stopped. With all the wars he’s been in, all the top fighters in the world he’s fought, and how many times he’s done it (44, which is the record for most UFC fights ever), it’s just incredible.

Bobby Green on the other hand turned in one of the better performances of his career tonight at UFC 300.

I became a fan of combat sports when I was 12 years old. I was scrolling through the channels and landed upon Versus, where WEC was televised. Urijah Faber fought Jens Pulver for the second time that night. That's the first fight I ever saw, and I was immediately hooked. So eventually, I began covering the sport in the fourth quarter of 2018, and have since started writing about animals as well. If you'd like to see those pieces, be sure to check out!
