Pettis win a win over Guida deserves it as its his shot to lose. Miller however deserves a big fight to compete for a title shot. Miller just keeps winning over and over him vs Guida or Sherk would be great fights.

yea too much BS. It was the same with bader-jones. I heard if bader won then he would have to fight once more but since jones won he got a shot right away. (due to evans injury) but still not fair for him to get a shot and not bader had he won the fight.

No, his level of competition is good but not outstanding. Guida vs Pettis is the next number 1 contender. Jim needs a top 5 opponent in his next fight.

No. It's time for Miller to start fighting top contenders. 7 fight win streak against lesser competition is not impressive in my book.

This is the nonsense that pisses me off... Cruz and Aldo got belts right off the bat and Pettis was told he'd have next shot... two fights later and the story is way off that.

A little honesty wouldn't hurt the UFC sometime.

Oliveira whilst inexperienced is one of the most dangerous 155ers in my book and in the future that win is going to look great for Miller. If Pettis wins he deserves a title shot but Miller is far more deserving than Guida. If Miller does have to wait he needs a guy like Sherk, Siver, Guillard.
