The edge of Miller's sleeve is barely visible, because, you know, he got like two feet from Shields and into the camera shot. Then when Shields turned around and nodded, he jumped in and jammed his face into the camera and mike. His explanation seems mostly to differ in that he thinks that walking into the cage uninvited and "accidentally" putting yourself right into the shot during someone's interview means you should then simply take over the interview.
He didn't take over the interview until Shields recognized him. If Shields had finished his piece and then turned to Miller it might have gone another way. (Unlikely with Captain Gangsta and his little brother in the room). I'll admit Miller was very close to Shields. Maybe his memory is skewed or he just sees it differently than it actually went. I won't say he's infallible, but his reasoning for getting into the cage was to hype a rematch. And honestly, who else was worth fighting at 185 for Shields except the only guy to come close to finishing him on the ground in years?
So beating Saku is very meaningful but Frank is not? And aside from Shields (who beat Miller) who has Miller fought in his last ten that is higher caliber than Nick's last ten? The difference is Nick is winning consistently and defending a title.
I didn't call him a loser but he is over the hill.
Mike Aina - Nobody
KJ Noons - Forgot the most fundamental part of Boxing. DONT get punched in the face
Katsuya Inoue - Apparently doesn't know how to string wins together
Muhsin Corbbrey - Same as Inoue
Thomas Denny - Almost as many wins as losses
Frank Shamrock - Not quite as over the hill as Ken, but getting there
Scott Smith - average stand up, couldn't cut it in the UFC, or take 1 spinning back kick from Cung le
Marius Zaromskis - Oddly enough, this is the most winningest opponent (second to Sakurai) Nick has fought since leaving the UFC.
Hyato Sakurai - On a two fight losing streak when he fought Nick. But a pretty illustrious past.
Hector Urbina - Nobody with nobody dressing
Hiromitsu Miura - Another less than remarkable opponent
Tim Kennedy - Just fought for MW title
Katsuyori Shibata - Absolutely horrible fighter
Ronaldo Souza - MW champion, they fought an absolute battle, and Miller looked damn good on the ground with Souza
Kala Hose - Nobody
Jake Shields - UFC WW, former MW champion, Miller almost subbed him, but Shields was saved from the RNC by the bell
Tim Stout - Nobody, a recovery fight
Sakuraba - One of the greatest groundfighters ever. Maybe not who he used to be, but one who was and still in not even close to a slouch on the ground. Lost to Miller by RNC
Looking at this. They've both fought quite a few cans in the past 10. But I will give you, Miller has fought more by a small margin, but his opponents outside cans were far superior to Diaz's. (Shields and Souza vs Noons and Shamrock)
Lay off the weights and protein for a couple of months. I'll admit it would be tough to do healthily in three months but its not impossible, and it's just as unfair to ask nick to pig out and smash himself on the weights to add healthy weight (also pretty difficult) so he can get some what close to the 195-200 Mayhem will weight at fight time.
Another beautifully articulated nothing. The human body requires 80Fl oz of water to sustain body function, i.e. Lymphatic system, Endocrine system, as well as basic tissue perfusion. The body sweats 15-20FL oz of water per hour of vigorous exercise (some people more, some less). 16FL oz equates to 1lb. That means miller needs to be in a deficit of over 100FL oz of water. His body will not be functioning. He'll be vomiting, he'll be unable to stand, he'll have cramps that don't go away. He will fail to be medically elligable to fight. Also: Miller walks at approx. 203, meaning he only has about 143FL oz of water in his body on a regular basis.
Another tidbit, it takes days to recover from dehydration on this scale in a hospital with fluids being pumped into the body intra-venously. Miller will literally have to try to kill himself to fight at 179. This isn't an exaggeration. He will put his life, and chronic health in jeopardy to fight at this weight. Its impossible.
