Here's an interview with Jim Miller (IFL fighter) from MMAFighting.com. Miller is a killer jiu jitsu/ submission guy that wrestled for a short period of time at Virginia Tech.
Most top shelf mixed martial arts fighters have the full repertoire of skills plus that one thing that sets them apart. In Chuck Liddell?s case, the thing that sets him apart is his striking power. In Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira?s case, it?s his submission skills. In Randy Couture?s case, it?s his patented ground and pound.
Thus, when attempting to find MMA stars of the future it would seem important to locate those guys that are well rounded with something that sets them apart. And when it comes to IFL lightweight Jim Miller, you?d have to be blind to miss what puts him above the crowd.
Let?s put it this way: Don?t hit the canvas with this guy and expect to keep all of your limbs intact. On the way to an 11-1 overall MMA record, Miller has submitted eight opponents and TKO?d another. And luck for us, he took the time to talk with MMAFighting.com?s Robert Rousseau about his recent victory over Bart Palaszewski, a near fight with Marcus Aurelio, and more.
