I think Miller is a borderline top 10 guy. He seems to have a better chin then Joe and he has better wrestling then Joe so he should be the one that dictates where the fight takes place. He is tougher to finish then Joe and he also knows how to finish. I don't like Joe's chances here at all.

Lauzon is a finisher if there ever was one. 22 wins and 22 finishes.

Yeah but Miller is not far behind him. with 15 finishes in 21 fights. Also he has only been finished 1 time, never been knocked out. Joe has been finished 6 times(3 sub, 3 KO). So they are both finishers but 1 of them is harder to finish then the other.

No doubt Jim has finishes. I'm not saying Lauzon is better than Miller, just that Miller isn't really above Lauzon or at least not by that much IMO.

I'll agree to disagree. I think Miller is in that class right below the elites and IMO Joe is in the class below that. But I might be underestimating Joe, some of his bad moments are stuck in my mind.

Maybe I am wrong but being a finisher could be Miller's mistake in this fight. Lauzon is better off his back and better standing, Jim's advantage is wrestling but he needs to put more weight on control and try and ride it out unless an opportunity presents itself, every time he goes for something he is risking giving Joe and opportunity.

Lauzon via Submission last in the fight for my money.

Joe Lauzon is one of my favorite fighters, I think he can beat any guy in the top ten, he can also lose to any guy in the top ten.

Jim Miller can pull any win out of his ass, so I would go with Miller by DEC.


Make the WW division great again

Leaning towards J-lo.

He continues to improve with every fight, whereas Miller seems to have hit a wall and may be on a decline.

In J-lo's last fight against Jamie Varner. He was being outboxed, got hit with a lot of good punches, had a ton of pressure put on him & just walked through it all & pulled off the upset sub.

He's looking borderline invincible.

This fight should be good and hard fought. I could see it going either way but if I had to bet on one of the guys I gotta go with Miller. My prediction is Miller wins a close decision.

Miller, he is prettier.

You just can not find good assassins these days!
I give this bitch a month before someone comes forth with better aim and does what must be done.
