Phan vs. Miller Wiki Update Wiki

The sixth bout of UFC on FOX 4 saw Nam Phan take on Cole Miller in the featherweight division.


Miller landed a nice front kick to the chin as Phan came forward and looked to keep the shorter Phan at bay with his significant reach advantage. Phan got his timing down and landed a few nice combos, working in the body shots as he always does. A left hook to the chin on the end of another body combo stunned Miller, but Miller fired back with kicks that Phan blocked. Miller stunned Phan with a one-two combo but it was Phan controlling the center while Miller circled on the outside. Phan landed another pair of hard left hooks and rocked him with another pair before delivering a crushing overhand right, but Miller stayed on his feet. Phan really came on strong toward the end of the round, lighting Miller up with his boxing while Miller struggled to find his range again.


Miller landed some nice kicks and straight punches at the start of the second but Phan came in again and landed the better shots in the pocket. The exchanges throughout the first half of the second were much closer than in the first, with both men landing often. Miller snapped Phan's head back a few times with straight crosses and may have been edging Phan in terms of second round striking volume. Phan landed a few more of his patented left hooks before the horn to cap off a close round.


Miller came out aggressive in the third and landed a combo but Phan stumbled him with a punch and chased him across the cage. Miller waved off the strike and fired back but Phan was landing heavy leather in the ensuing exchange. Neither man would back down from the exchanges. Miller shot for a takedown that Phan easily stuffed, suggesting he was tiring of the bruising punches. Phan worked the body midway through the round, dropping Miller's hands, but Miller found new life on the feet and gave almost as good as he got, though he lacked the volume of punches Phan was turning in. Miller stunned Phan in the final minute but Phan would not back down and resumed his attack.


The judges scored the bout 29-28 Phan, 29-28 Miller, and 29-28 Phan, giving him the Split Decision victory.
