Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE
UFC Lightweight contender Jim Miller won't be satisfied with anything less than an utterly dominant performance against Joe Lauzon.
UFC Lightweight contender Jim Miller is looking to get back on the winning trail against Joe Lauzon at UFC 155. Miller had a 7 fight UFC win streak going until he ran into future champ Ben Henderson in August 2011 and dropped a unanimous decision. He rebounded by submitting Melvin Guillard in January but then he got submitted by Nate Diaz in May.
Miller is looking to re-establish himself at the top of the division's food chain by beating the tough Lauzon. He spoke to MMA Junkie and shared his lofty goals for the fight:
"I'm a fan of his, and I think it's an exciting fight and I match up well with (Lauzon). I'm excited to get back in the swing of things because even after I came back from the injury, I was having a tough time just getting back in consistently with everything going on. It's good to be back and going full-bore.
"I haven't been satisfied with a fight for coming up on two years now and it's really been eating at me. I want to get in there and do everything I'm capable of.The Guillard fight, I was happy I won and happy I finished him. But it wasn't a dominant two-minute fight. He landed a shot, and that's not what I want. I want to go in and make somebody look bad. I want to beat him up and be dominant from bell to bell. I try to be my own biggest critic and really push myself."
Miller vs. Lauzon will be the co-main event at UFC 155 on Saturday, December 29 live on pay-per-view.
