Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

LAS VEGAS -- Jim Miller was victorious at UFC 100 in 2009. He's now added a victory at UFC 200 to his resume.

The popular veteran lightweight from Sparta, N.J., made short work of former PRIDE lightweight champion Takaonori Gomi on Saturday, winning via TKO at 2:18 of the first round in the opening bout at T-Mobile Arena.

Miller (26-8, 1 NC) caught a Gomi kick, took him to the mat, got his back, and eventually worked into position to rain down punches from the back mount. Gomi took the punches uncontested until the bout was waved off.

With the victory, Miller, who defeated Mac Danzig back at UFC 100, improved to 2-2 in his past four fights.

"I've had a tough two years," said MIller, who was competing in his 23rd UFC bout. "To get an opportunity to fight on 200, I wanted to fight in front of these fans."

Gomi (35-12, 1 NC) has dropped three straight fights.
