Anyone know? Does he think he needs one more bout before he can step up? Is he scared? Is he injuried? Anyone know for sure?

I have no idea. All I know is that he refused to fight both Baroni and Lindland. I don't know why...they're great opportunities for him. He beats either one of them, he's knocking on the door for a shot at Busta's belt. My guess is that he doesn't have enough confidence to beat those guys.

I seriously doubt Miller is in good enough shape to face Baroni. He barely pulled off the win against Weir. That victory was total luck. There know way Miller could out wrestle Baroni, He's not stronger then Baroni, and doesnt have the boxing skills Baoni has.

Miller is smart. Mabey we'll see him back in a few months in better shape.

He looked like crap against Weir.

Miller is a tough guy and he likes to trade but he is not very technical. He will get own by Busta or any other top fighter. Weir lost that fight because of one mistake but before that he was beating miller.

Miller does have one hell of a chin.

You can't train a fighter to have a Fujita like chin
