UFC 124: Charles Oliveira ready to show Jim Miller what real jiu-jitsu is


Props: Houston Examiner


"Jim is a top fighter, and this will be a very tough fight for me. He has a complete game and a very good left hand. He is dangerous. He has been winning a lot of decisions, so I am hoping to push the pace and finish the fight within the three rounds. He can say what he wants. I am a real jiu-jitsu fighter. Jim does not compete in jiu-jitsu. I hope he wants this fight to be on the ground. I will make him tap, and show him what real jiu-jitsu is."

Undefeated lightweight sensation Charles Oliveira (14-0) is looking for yet another submission win when he tangles with the venerable Jim Miller at UFC 124 in Montreal for a spot in the promotion's crowded 155-pound division. "Do Bronx" is just 20-years-old and has already created quite a buzz for his performances and penchant for finishing his opponents. That's 13 subs in 14 attempts if you're keeping score at home. Scary stuff. Can Miller survive on the ground and grind out a win at tomorrow night's (Dec. 11) event?
