Miller's latest fights in DREAM versus Jacare have been MW bouts at 185, no?


I think Miller takes this one via awesome ring entrance...

Anderson Silva's last two fights have been at LHW. Is he a LHW? I still consider him a MW. I still consider Miller a WW unless he is making a permanent move to MW.

Um, I hate to break it to you, but Mayhem Miller has been fighting at MW for a while now. Dude's a MW. He hates cutting to WW.

By the way, Shields wins a decision in a somewhat dull fight.

I didn't realize he had made a permanent move to MW. I have no doubt he hates cutting to WW, everyone hates cutting but the rule for the most success in MMA is "if you can cut, you do". If he can still make WW he'd probably be better off.

I agree that this will be a snoozer of a fight. Shields controlling Miller on the ground, but not enough to sub him since Miller is solid on the ground. Now imagine that for 15 minutes. Yawn.

I just want Jacare to come in and beat both Miller (Again) and Shields.

Wow, this is going to be an amazing fight! I think Shields can pull this one off but Miller is a real fighter with lots of heart and think his striking surpasses that of Shields.

Can't wait!

Another tough opponent for Shields. Mayhem is a tough fighter in the striking and ground aspects of the game, but I see Jake being able to capitalize on any mistake that Miller makes and finish the fight.

Make that 25 minutes for the title....I think.

Im hoping that this is the fight that Shields will show some improved striking in. I dont understand how someone who is so skilled and knowledgable on the ground can be so terrible standing up. Jake obviously is a very good student of wrestling and jiu jitsu, why doesnt he take that came approach to boxing or kickboxing?

well yeah he's a good wrestler. he's been wrestling since he was 9 and was a 2 time all american from cuesta college and got a wrestling scholarship SFSU, so why not use it? yeah his standup isn't the best but its not the worst since 10 of his victories have come by decision.
