Jim Miller is the true definition of UFC veteran.
The 37-year-old started in UFC journey at UFC 89 in October of 2008. Now nearly 13 years later, Miller is still fighting.
When Miller’s music hits the speakers and he starts the walk to the octagon at UFC Vegas 23 on Saturday, it will be the 37th time that he’s made that walk. Right now, Miller is tied for the most fights in UFC history with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, but on Saturday, Miller will have the record all to himself.
