Miller (28-11 (1) MMA, 17-10 (1) UFC) holds the record for most victories in the history of the lightweight division and sits in a three-way tie for sixth place overall with former champions Anderson ‘the Spider’ Silva and Rafael Dos Anjos with 17 wins, three places back of top elite fighters in Georges St-Pierre, Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone and Michael Bisping.

When he steps inside the octagon against Dan Hooker, he’ll once again draw level with Michaels Bisping for most octagon appearances with 29. However, despite of these accomplishments, Miller has no intentions of hanging the gloves.

“I feel like I’ve left a mark and I’m not done yet; there is still more to come,” said Miller, who will celebrate 10 years in the UFC this October. “I’ve been in quite a few good fights, I’ve taken pretty much every fight that has ever been offered to me and I’ve never pulled out of a fight.

However, Miller seems to be failing to find a groove as he is on a three-fight losing streak against Dustin Poirier, Anthony Pettis and Francisco Trinaldo resowctively, after being on a three-fight winning streak.

“Three in a row sucks,” said Miller, who acknowledged that he was battling an illness in Brazil. “Let’s be perfectly honest: it sucks and there is definitely added pressure being on that skid coming into this next one, but what frustrates me and kind of pisses me off is that I had a fight with Poirier where if I had thrown three more leg kicks, he couldn’t stand up and I win that one.

“The fight with Pettis, I made a tactical error in trying to guide him up so I could take his back. If I had fought more conservatively – which isn’t my style – I could have won the second and then it’s one-to-one going into the third and hopefully I bled on him enough that he gets a little desperate.

“I’m not taking anything away from Trinaldo, but I performed way worse against him and those last two guys would have finished me if I fought them like I did Trinaldo, given how dangerous they are,” he added. “That’s what gets me because it was just bad. It was just bad.

“That’s the frustrating part and the whole plan is to take it out on Dan in Atlantic City.”
