Round 1: Both fighters open orthodox with Herb Dean is the referee. Sicilia is winging shots, but can't land anything of note. Same for Miller, who is trying to counterpunch. Front kick-right hand combination lands for nicely for Miller. Two jabs now for Miller as well. Sicilia scores a body shot and loops a right hand around the glove of Miller that seems to temporarily stumble him. Outside leg kick for Miller as he circles out. Close round.

Round 2: Jab scores early for Miller and he's still moving. A right hand down the pipe absolutely drills Sicilia and he's rocked. Another one and Sicilia tries to take Miller down and can't as the ATT fighter gets his hips back. Miller scores again on the right hand, although slightly less potent. Then again and this time Sicilia is in huge trouble. Miller jumps mounted guillotine and Sicila escapes, but Miller's in side control. Sicilia tries to roll and Miller takes his back, snatches him off of his base and sinks the rear naked choke for the tap.
