“This is my job, and it’s how I put presents under the tree and put food on the table. I don’t have much of a problem with it. My family is a food family and we make food, cookies, canning stuff and we do that for gifts to each other. That’s the hardest part, cutting during Christmas with all that food around, but it’s nothing I’m not used to. I’ve been cutting weight my whole life.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Don McPeak-USA TODAY Sports) “I still feel some of the pain that I experienced in that fight in my day-to-day training. I left my mark on him and he sure as hell left his mark on me. That was one of those fights that took a little out of each of us, you know? For this fight I’m focusing on getting better, staying in shape and keeping a positive attitude. As professionals we have to learn to work around things and just push forward.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports) “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.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports) “I don’t really contemplate it but I know it’s coming. You only have a certain amount of fights, especially at this level. There aren’t many guys with 20 fights, and I’ve got fifteen of those in the UFC. I know that sooner or later I am going to need to call it quits but I’m still not finished. I still have stuff I need to do in the sport and I still have things to prove to myself. I’ve made a lot of progress in the last few years, but I don’t think I’ve been able to show it inside the cage. It all comes down to the body. My mind is there. The technique is there. Sometimes some other things don’t want to cooperate and you just have to deal with it. You can’t fight forever.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports) “He’s got something to prove against me but I’ve got something to prove against him too. We are all trying to leave our mark and he’s going to try to leave his on me. I don’t sleep on anybody and I don’t want to be anyone’s stepping stone, so I’m looking to fight my fight and put him away. He’s good on the ground and he’s really good at taking guys’ backs. He’s a tough guy; there are no slouches in the UFC and he’s definitely not one. He’s very dangerous and has lots of experience. I have to fight smart and fight my fight.” (PHOTO CREDIT: Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports) 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 . Miller recently spoke to UFC 168 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.
