UFC 124 Predictions: Jim Miller (18-2-0) vs. Charles Oliveira (14-0-0)
UFC 124: As his undefeated MMA record indicates, Charles Oliveira has looked very good throughout his career, especially in his victory over The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 winner Efrain Escudero.
But he'll be facing Jim Miller this time around, and Miller's no walk in the park.
Miller enters this fight with an impressive 18-2 record and has won five straight fights.
Miller is known for his incredible stamina and submissions, but that may not matter in this bout.
Oliveira doesn't go the distance very often, and his submission ability is right on par with that of Miller.
This fight will go to the mat at some point, and whoever gains the advantage there should have the overall upper hand in this fight.
Though neither fighter is a slouch on the ground, Oliveira has the better overall game, which will help him pull out the "W" in this one.
Prediction: Oliveira via second-round submission.
