UFC 124 Results: Where could Jim Miller and Charles Oliveira go from here?
Jim Miller believes that he's now up there with the likes of Evan Dunham, Kenny Florian, and of course, The Answer and The Bully.
Charles Oliveira, on the other hand will have to take a step back with his loss to Miller.
All this loss means is that Oliveira has holes in his game that need plugging up.
It's tough to figure who you'd give Oliveira next, although if he trains his ass off, a fight with Jeremy Stephens may not sound too bad.
Then again, neither would a bout against fellow prospect and TUF 12 cast member Cody McKenzie, who faces a huge step up in competition in the form of Yves Edwards.
As for Miller, the most logical plan would be to wait out to see how Kenny Florian's injury holds up or wait for Melvin Guillard's fight with Evan Dunham to play itself out.
Then again, you could turn to Gomi vs. Guida at UFC 125 for Miller's next test.
Either way, a move to Featherweight -- while promising in terms of the fights that Joe Silva and Sean Shelby probably could make happen -- isn't all of a sudden the best move for the AMA Fight Club warrior.
