Video: Jim Miller says 'no' to low blow from Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 45

The final word on this.

"No, it wasn't. It hit me right in the... I... like I said, the first knee he threw messed me up to the body pretty bad and then he kept hitting it. It was a solid shot to the body. I wasn't going to let it go, you know, let Dan... he didn't know it was to the body."

Jim Miller gives us the definitive word on the body kick from Donald Cerrone that referee Dan Miragliotta thought was a low blow at UFC Fight Night 45 last night (July 16, 2014) in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It wasn't. It was a hard shot to the gut that put Miller down but the rushing dog was called off before he could finish the job. It was odd, though, because Miragliotta didn't give Miller the full five minutes to recover, betraying the fact that he stopped the fight for the infraction. Miller seems to clear that up here as well, that he informed the referee it wasn't a low blow and they continued. Cerrone would ultimately use a head kick to knock Miller out (watch the finish here). So there you go.
