Cowboy vs Miller Prediction
Miller was scheduled to fight Bobby Green in the July 2 UFC 276 card but Green withdrew from the fight for an undisclosed reason. Now steps up Cowboy Cerrone for yet another short-notice fight. At one point Cowboy was taking 4 UFC fights a year and even got a “red panty night” fight against Conor McGregor in 2020. Since then the old bucks’ luck has run out and a new generation of UFC fighters now rule the roster. One old-timer Jim Miller appears to be defying those odds and is on a two-fight winning streak with KO wins over Erick Gonzalez and Nikolas Motta.
Cerrone has always been a game fighter, with his odds being typically closer than the latest UFC 276 betting line. Over his most recent six fights, the Cowboy has been a betting underdog. It hasn’t been since he fought Al Iaquinta, that Cerrone opened as the favorite and closed as an underdog – it also being the last fight he won.
Jim Miller on the other hand is a tricker fighter for online sportsbooks to list odds on. Over his last fight against Nikolas Motta, Miller was a +160 underdog a fight he won by KO. Prior to that Miller was highly favored over Erick Gonzalez ranging from -250 to -300 come fight night.
Miller made his UFC debut back in 2008 at UFC 89 in Birmingham, England. Picking up a submission win over David Baron. The UFC vet holds notable wins over current UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, Thiago Alves, and Joe Lauzon. While he’s also come up short against Dustin Poirier, Anthony Pettis, and Beneil Dariush over the years.
When the UFC visited Atlantic City, NJ back in 2014, Cerrone stopped Miller with an infamous head-kick in the second round. The tables have turned for Cerrone and he is now a significant underdog to win at this point of his career.
Cerrone has a 2-inch reach over Miller and has historically more striking output. If Cerrone can keep the striking volume high from the opening bell, there is a real situation where he hurts Miller or more realistically wins by decision. That being said, betting on Cerrone at this stage of his MMA run is dicey, he is 5-1 NC in his last 6 fights. There will be an adjustment round and after that I see Miller setting the pace and mixing up his striking and wrestling to cause Cerrone some real problems.
Betting Pick: Miller by Decision
