"I've been submitted once before against Nate Diaz but the circumstances leading up to the submission were the difference in this one. With Pat Healy it's the first time in my career that I've ever gassed. I've gotten tired before and I've slowed down because of the pace of the fight, but that was the first time I've ever gassed out. It's not a feeling that I like and sometimes it's one of those nights. I was in good shape but it was a different feeling. As I put more mileage on my body it's gotten tougher to fight at the pace that I have been. It's harder to fight every three or four months now. I need a little time off now. I feel the pain of having been a professional fighter and having fifteen fights in the UFC, but it's a feeling I'm addicted to; standing on the canvas in the Octagon is a feeling I'm addicted to."

UFC lightweight Jim Miller is 3-0 in December including last year’s epic encounter with Joe Lauzon over New Year’s Eve weekend. The 30-year old will attempt to add a fourth win to the record this Saturday night when he squares off against Fabricio Camoes at UFC 168. Miller recently spoke to UFC.com about his clash with Camoes while also taking time to reflect on how age has affected his approach in the Octagon, what it’s like to train during the holiday season, and why he has no interest in another war like the one with Lauzon.
