Jim Miller's next fight? Don't expect any call-outs or (expletive) talking ...

Because that's not Miller's style, according to his post-fight comments, even if it keeps him from the lightweight title for at least another year...

"I think I'm a couple wins away [from a title shot]. There's still a couple of guys that have the recognition at the top of the divsion even with a couple of losses lately so I gotta keep fighting. It hasn't even been two years since I've been with the UFC so I'm just trying to fight as often as I can and fight the toughest guys I can ... It's not my style to start calling anybody out, I just have a ton of respect for my peers and the guys that train their asses off to step in the Octagon with me. I just try to keep it at that, respect them and not talk shit."

Make it 7-1 inside the Octagon and 18-2 overall for Jim Miller, who took a unanimous decision win over the dangerous Gleison Tibau at last night's UFC Fight Night 22 event in Austin, Texas. The Sparta native has only one blemish on his stellar UFC resume, a decision loss to the still-unbeaten Gray Maynard. Does this win finally put him on the map? Or is the 155-pound division just too crowded to put Miller in the top five?
