Jim Miller Biography
He holds multiple records in the UFC, including the most bouts, most wins overall, and most wins in the lightweight division. Jim is also the younger brother of former UFC fighter Dan Miller.
In high school at Sparta High School, Jim participated in wrestling, and he also spent a year in collegiate wrestling at Virginia Tech. Although he initially didn’t plan on wrestling at Virginia Tech, he joined the team as a walk-on later in the season due to his growing desire to compete again. However, Jim’s time with the school’s wrestling program was cut short due to “disagreements” with the coaching staff and the program. He currently holds a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu under Jamie Cruz. Jim started his mixed martial arts training in 2005 at Planet Jiu-Jitsu in Sparta, New Jersey, alongside his brother Dan Miller.
Jim had his professional debut fight on November 19, 2005, at Reality Fighting 10, where he earned a unanimous decision victory against Eddie Fyvie. He continued his success in the promotion with two more wins, both by first-round submission.
These victories led to a title shot against Muhsin Corbbrey for the Reality Fighting Lightweight Championship, which Jim won by securing an armbar in the second round. In his first title defense, he faced future UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar at Reality Fighting 14, where Edgar controlled most of the fight but Jim displayed a tight guillotine late in the final round. Despite his effort, Edgar fought through the choke and won the unanimous decision.
Before Reality Fighting 14, Planet Jiu-Jitsu closed down, and Jim started training at AMA Fight Club in Whippany, New Jersey, with his brother Dan in January 2007.
Jim made his debut with the Cage Fury Fighting Championships on April 13, 2007, in a Lightweight Championship bout against Al Buck. It was the first time he fought on the same card as his brother since Reality Fighting XII, and both brothers emerged victorious. In the fight, Jim secured a rear-naked choke after a series of grappling exchanges to claim the win.
He defended his title for the first time at Cage Fury Fighting Championships 5 against Anthony Morrison, submitting him with a triangle choke in the first round to retain the championship.
Jim’s second title defense was scheduled for Cage Fury Fighting Championships 6 against Clay French, but the event was canceled a week prior when a primary investor withdrew.
In recent years, Jim Miller has been battling Lyme disease since the spring of 2013. The diagnosis took time, but he has managed to alleviate the symptoms of the disease by making changes to his nutrition plan.
In his most recent fights, Jim was scheduled to face Gabriel Benítez at UFC Fight Night 219, but he fought Alexander Hernandez instead, losing the fight via unanimous decision. He was then slated to fight Ľudovít Klein at UFC on ESPN 46, but the opponent changed to Jared Gordon, who was eventually replaced by Jesse Butler. Jim emerged victorious in this bout, knocking out Butler in just 23 seconds of the first round, extending his winning record to 25 wins.
