Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

In his sixth appearance in the featherweight division, Miller used his significant reach advantage to control distance and score the eventual submission victory.

Opening up the main card on FS1 for UFC Fight Night 35, Sam Sicilia and Cole Miller faced off in a featherweight fight. Miller completely controlled the range in this almost wholly striking affair. He picked Sicilia apart from range before dropping him with a right in round 2. It didn't take long after that for him to lock on the fight ending rear naked choke.

Slow start through the first half of round one as both fighters struggled to find their range. Miller backed up Sicilia with a straight right. Sicilia responded by walking him down into the fence and alnded a big body shot that hurt Miller. Miller got back into his groove in the final minutes of the round, keeping Sicilia back with long straight punches.

Miller hit a slick 1-2 combination in the opening minute of round two had Sicilia rocked. A mouse under Sicilia's right eye shows the damage he's taken. Another straight right from Miller wobbled Sicililia. Miller took it to the ground where Sicilia gave up his back before submitting to a rear naked choke.

Cole Miller submits Sam Sicilia with a rear naked choke at 1:54 of round 2.
