UFC 124 Fight Card: Preview of Jim Miller vs. Charles Oliveira
Let's hit this one quick but probably painful:
Jim Miller and Charles Oliveira are beasts on the ground, and they aren't too shabby standing up either.
Miller's last bout was Gleison Tibau at UFC Fight Night 22, the same night as the last addition to Oliveira's unbeaten record -- a submission win that came at Efrain Escudero's expense.
The two-time Submission of the Night winner is a finisher if there ever was one, but Miller is tough to finish.
Even for the scary-good BJJ ace, Miller is the type of guy who knows his way around submission attempts and there's probably very little Charles can do to phase Miller.
Don't anticipate this being a stand-up war, but do anticipate it being one of the more exciting ground-based fights in the sport as each man tries their heart out to submit the other.
At the end of the bout, though, Miller's five fight win streak will be snapped but by a thread, as Oliveira proves that he can not only go three rounds with a man like Miller, but he can also make people believe that he won.
Whether you feel he does or not is your call.
