Nam Phan defeated Cole Miller by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)

Nam Phan and Cole Miller decided to tussle on the feet for 15 minutes, and the result was pretty entertaining. Both controlled different parts of the fight, but an early flurry by Phan in the third was probably what swayed the judges into awarding the split decision his way.

Miller was using his length advantage early, throwing a variety of front kicks and jabs. Phan was having problems finding his range but was able to land to the body a bit. Phan landed a couple of solid left hooks, and another. Phan started pouring it on against the fence with lefts and rights over the top. Miller was cut under the right eye. Nam finished the round with a nice combination.

Cole started the second much like the first, controlling the range and landing a bunch of strikes. Phan responded with a nice combination. Both men were getting their licks in, but Miller was getting the better of the first three minutes. Miller was doing a much better job of circling away from the cage which kept him out of danger. Miller landed two solid straight rights. Phan finished with a solid left hook of his own.

Phan stung Miller with a left early in the third and turned it on. Nam just missed with a big head kick. Phan was really bringing it, take Miller out of his gameplan. Miller had a takedown attempt easily stuffed. Miller turned it around a bit midway through the round but was still eating far too many shots. Miller landed a nice uppercut inside. Miller really poured it on over the last minute, making the third round very tough to call.
