Miller vs. Doerksen Wiki Update Wiki

New Jersey native Dan Miller controlled Joe Doerksen on the ground for three rounds en route to a Decision win at UFC 124 from Montreal, Quebec's Bell Center. Though the bout ended in a somewhat surprising Split as opposed to Unanimous Decision, it was Miller who remained in control for the majority of the bout, which concluded with both men bloodied and thrashing at one another from the ground.

From the outset Doerksen was throwing the heavier blows of the two, but the strategy repeatedly backfired as Miller secured early takedowns in each of the three rounds. Miller spent most of each round in Doerksen's guard, where he only occasionally attempted to pass in contravention of his corner's instructions, electing instead to chip away at Doerksen with short elbows and fists from the top. Doerksen, for his part, attempted a series of unsuccessful sweeps but took no great risks of his own in attempting to scramble back up. Doerksen briefly held top position in the third round after a reversal of Miller's takedown, but Miller quickly scrambled to his feet and shot immediately into a double-leg that landed him in top position. Miller rode out the round to a mild chorus of boos. It ended as a workmanlike and bloody, but ultimately unexciting win for Dan Miller.
