Jim Miller wants to find out just how good Georges St. Pierre really isPosted on July 23, 2011, 02:04 PM by Joey Santosus
In the division, in the UFC, there are quite a few guys I'd like to fight, including Clay (Guida) and Melvin (Guillard). I'd like the opportunity to fight the best and beat them. Outside the division, I'd love to fight Aoki. I have a level of respect for him because he's phenomenal on the ground but he's so disrespectful to other fighters, that I just want to beat him up. Overall, I'd really love to fight GSP, just to see how good he really is... I'm 27, just coming into my prime and if I'm putting on more weight and it becomes to much then I might move up. - For complete interview, visit MMAMania.com
It appears the 155-pound strap may not be the only title that could lie ahead for top Lightweight contender Jim Miller. Speaking in an interview with MMAMania, Miller revealed an interest in challenging reigning Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre, explaining that a move up to 170-pounds is not out of the question.
Fresh off of his seventh consecutive victory over Kamal Shalorus in March, Miller is currently preparing for an upcoming clash with former WEC champ Ben Henderson at UFC on Versus 5. If victorious, his place among the Lightweight elite will be undeniable, but is a future at Welterweight realistic for the AMA Fight Club product? What do you think LowKick'ers? Does Jim Miller have what it takes to be competitive at 170, or would he just be another name on GSP's long list of victims?
