Jim Miller still has plenty of gas in the tank after a record-setting 38 octagon appearances.
Miller took on promotional newcomer Erick Gonzalez on the main card of Saturday’s UFC Vegas 40 event in a lightweight matchup. After a back-and-forth first round where both fighters were wobbled, Miller came out in the second round and landed a blistering left hand — a punch that was gaining momentum towards the end of the first — that put Gonzalez out at the 0:14 mark of Round 2.
“A-10” surpassed Donald Cerrone for the most fights in UFC history (and is now tied with Maia for second-most UFC wins at 22, one behind Cerrone) and accomplished the feat in devastating fashion. Of course, Miller’s peers went crazy following the win. Check out how the pros reacted.
