Cole Miller won the first two rounds of his fight with Andy Ogle and demonstrated some nice jiu jitsu along the way, but the third round was entirely Ogle’s and saw Miller take a lot of punches before Ogle - for some reason - shot in to take the fight down to the floor and into the area where Miller excels.
Despite being hit a lot in the third, Miller’s post-fight speech was a piece of hubris which would cause even the irrepressible Chael Sonnen to blush. Not only did he give Ogle no credit, he slammed Ross Pearson and Conor McGregor into the bargain.
“I don’t want to talk about that,” he said when Joe Rogan asked him for a comment on the fight with Ogle. He had a message to deliver to the EU.
“I don't know what's going in with these judges in mixed martial arts, ruining my last fight. I don't know what's up with these European fighters, either,” he said.
“Ross Pearson couldn't beat me. Andy Ogle couldn't beat me. Dennis Siver can't beat me. And you know what? Neither can 'Colin McGoober,' so bring it.”
Miller got himself booed out of the Octagon on the way back to the dressing room but he doesn’t care one bit. He came into the fight off the back of a loss and now goes 2-2 in his last four, 2-3 in his last five.
