WATCH: Jim Miller unleashes his inner Apollo Creed ahead of UFC 213

Happy 4th of July

Enjoy your Independence Day celebration by watching UFC lightweight Jim Miller reenacting Apollo Creed’s entrance from Rocky.

Miller filmed the reenactment at his gym, Miller Brothers MMA Academy in Sparta, New Jersey.

He fights former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis at UFC 213 on Saturday.

Apollo Creed was a fictional character from the Rocky films. He was played by Carl Weathers. He is a tough but agile African-American boxer, who is, as the series begins, the undisputed heavyweight world champion. The character was inspired by the real-life champion Muhammad Ali, having what one author remarked as the same “brash, vocal, and theatrical” personality.
