Miller vs. Siler Wiki Update Wiki

In the fifth bout of UFC on FX 2, Cole Miller took on Steven Siler in the featherweight division.


Miller landed a quick jab and then circled away, eating a low kick from Siler. Miller clinched up at the first opportunity but Siler was able to separate and land another low kick. Miller fell to his back but Siler had no interest in following him down. Siler was the more effective striker halfway through the round though Miller did land a bruising right hand late in the round, followed up by a nice low kick. Siler connected on a sweet combination in the final 30 seconds that had Miller wobbly on his feet. Siler than powered in for a takedown and top-side guillotine choke attempt to end the round.


Miller landed a nice combination early in the second but Steven Siler fought back through it with a more powerful series of strikes, appearing to be the stronger fighter. Miller worked hard for a takedown, finally tripping Siler to the ground but was not in a position to hold him there. Siler landed a string of jabs but then Miller connected on his best combination of the fight, snapping Siler's head back repeatedly against the fence. Miller landed again but then ate a big body punch from Siler. A competitive second round that neither fighter firmly took control of.


Miller's longer reach served him well at a few points early in the third round but Siler held the power advantage. Siler's nose trickled blood by late in the round and Miller had perhaps worn him down be the end, landing knees in the clinch and then wrestling him down with 45 seconds left. Miller landed a big punch, took full mount, and closed out the round strong.


The judges scored the bout 29-28 unanimously in favor of Steven Siler. Speaking to Jon Anik in the post-fight interview, Siler commented, "He's tough as hell and is definitely going to be a force to reckoned with the featheweight division... in the third round I left him get the takedown and I wanted to keep it standing."
