Miller vs. Wiman Wiki Update Wiki

"Handsome" Matt Wiman progressively took control of his UFC Fight Night 23 bout over the favored Cole Miller, landing takedowns in all three rounds to score a Unanimous Decision victory. While the first round was closely contested the following two were not, as Wiman maintained top position and rained down strikes, including a series of Sakuraba-style Mongolian double-fist chops, into Miller's guard. The loss was a major setback for Miller, who entered the contest winner of two straight against Dan Lauzon and Ross Pearson, respectively, and hoped to land a title shot by polishing off Wiman and perhaps another contender. For Wiman, it was more than a return to form as he put on perhaps the best Octagon performance of his career in shutting down Miller's dangerous game.
