Through all of the great fights and storylines at UFC 228, very few were talking about Jim Miller cementing his legacy. He may not be a future Hall of Famer or ever hold UFC gold, but his longevity in the world’s most elite organization speaks for itself. Jim Miller just surpassed Michael Bisping by competing in the most fights under the UFC banner. Yes, you read that right. Jim Miller just competed in his 30th UFC fight. Dating all the way back to UFC 89 (which ironically was headlined by Bisping) in October 2008, Miller has competed at the highest level against the best in the world.
Now, let me remind you of the competition he’s faced. Anthony Pettis, Dustin Poirier, Thiago Alves, Joe Lauzon, Diego Sanchez, Donald Cerrone, Nate Diaz, Benson Henderson. I can keep going but I want to be considerate of your time. Regardless of wins or losses, this shows that he has never shied away from a fight. Jim Miller owns three “Submission of the Night” and six “Fight of the Night” awards. I think we all owe “A10” our appreciation.
Jim Miller defeated Alex White via rear-naked Choke to earn a victory in his record breaking fight. Miller dropped White with a shot, pounced on him to continue the relentless ground and pound, bloodied him up in the process, and submitted White with a rear-naked choke less than a minute and a half into the fight.
