After the two mouthy middleweights exchanged barbs yesterday via the popular social media platform, Miller opened fire when prodded by fans over the difference in their respective accomplishments. In short, he promised to "end Sonnen's career" -- just as soon as Anderson Silva was done "kicking his head in."
I love the MMA media's obsession with Fael. After the Brazilian kicks his head in, I'm going to end his career.
Sonnen actually defeated Miller via unanimous decision just over 10 years ago at the Hitman Fighting Productions "Rumble on the Reservation" event from the Cahuilla Creek Casino in Anza, California.
Miller is currently booked to face off against C.B. Dollaway at the UFC 146 pay-per-view (PPV) event on May 26, 2012 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. Shortly after that, Sonnen will try (again) to dethrone middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva at the UFC 147 extravaganza on June 23 in Rio.
It's not hard to imagine that if Sonnen loses and Miller wins, they could be paired off for a 185-pound grudge match at a future event. But would the results be any different the second time around?
