Dan Miller has been given a stay of execution by the UFC despite racking up three consecutive losses in the octagon.
Miller lost out by unanimous decision against Michael Bisping in the co-main event of last months UFC 114 show, following on from prior losses to Chael Sonnen and Demian Maia, which led to speculation that he was set to be cut from the promotion.
Miller has had rough time of it in his personal life though, losing his young daughter last year and now watching his newborn son battle a serious illness, which has attracted a great deal of sympathy from fans and may have led to the UFC giving him one more chance.
To be fair up until his recent difficulties the 28 year-old was on an impressive run, posting a record of 11-1 with 1 no-contest, and even adding in his latest three losses he’s still never been stopped inside the distance or been overwhelmed in a fight.
It does however appear from his recent performances that he is not firing on all cylinders and that’s a problem he’ll need to address quickly or he won’t remain on the roster for much longer.
