Cole Miller (18-5) was just one of the many men to receive a medical suspension following his winning effort against T.J. Oâ€™Brien (16-5) at UFC Live 5. Initially suspended for just 30 days, it appears â€œMagrinhoâ€ will see the sidelines quite a bit longer than a month: the American Top Team product reportedly broke his hand before the first round of the bout had drawn to a conclusion.
Despite breaking his hand early, Miller got to work right away in the second frame, battering Oâ€™Brien with a varied arsenal, before sinking a fight-ending guillotine choke midway through the round. The bout with Oâ€™Brien marks only the second fight Miller has notched in 2011. Unfortunately it will be his last.
Having just rebounded from a knee injury that left Miller out of commission for months, the news of the official diagnosis must come as a heart breaker for Miller, whoâ€™s failed to secure solid momentum and a steady fighting schedule for some years now; the manâ€™s fought just twice a year, each year, since 2007. Not exactly a fight schedule that affords major advancements in one of the most talent rich divisions in the sport, now is it?
