The main card of tonight's (Wed., Jan. 15, 2014) UFC Fight Night 35: "Rockhold vs. Philippou" event from the Arena at Gwinnet Center in Duluth, Georgia, kicked off with a featherweight showdown pitting the always dangerous Cole Miller against hard-hitting former Ultimate Fighter contestant Sam Sicilia.
The first round was largely a stalemate between two fighters who simply couldn't find the right opening. Miller was popping a stiff jab, effectively using his reach advantage. He found some success with a hard shot off a teep but Sicilia came back with a big right hand of his own to even the score.
The finish came in the second round when Miller blasted Sicilia with a hard combination that earned a knockdown and, not long after, a rear-naked choke submission victory.
