Cole Miller: “Fighting Cowboy Would Be a Step Down from Matt Wiman”


There’s no doubt that Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone has had only one name on his mind since moving to the UFC recently. That’s Cole Miller.

Following his last win in the WEC, Cerrone called for a fight against Miller because of a win the American Top Team fighter picked up over his close friend and training partner Leonard Garcia in the UFC back in 2007… and maybe a few words that were tossed around afterwards.

While both Miller and Cerrone are preparing for bouts against different opponents in the next few weeks, the pair could be headed for a showdown at some point in the near future. To hear Miller tell it, he’s sick of hearing his name come out of Cerrone’s mouth.

“I’m just tired of this guy and his same old song,” Miller said about Cerrone when speaking to MMAWeekly Radio. “Every time I see this guy he just wants to talk about how he wants to fight me, and beat my ass because I beat Leonard. Waah, waah, waah.”

Looking back at the fight he had with Garcia, Miller points out that he doesn’t even remember Cerrone, but he admits they’ve had a few words since then.

“I don’t even remember him being there,” Miller commented. “I saw him I guess about a year later, and he expressed to me that he wanted to fight me. So ever since, every time we see each other, we kind of have a little bit of a verbal battle.”

Miller isn’t sure why Cerrone picked him over anyone else that he wanted to fight just because he beat Garcia, but he’s certainly not backing down from the challenge.

“There really isn’t a lot of people that beat Leonard, but there’s several other people besides me, a couple of guys that have beat him, and I don’t see him trying to call those guys out, but whatever,” Miller said.

“This guy, he’s a bully. He probably sees me as being the easiest target or the easiest kill, so he can bring it on, come on.”

Miller is currently closing up camp for his Jan. 22 UFC Fight for the Troops 2 bout against Matt Wiman. If he’s successful, he’s not really sure Cerrone deserves a shot at him, but if that’s what the UFC wants, he’ll sign his name on the dotted line.

“I don’t think he’s horrible or anything like that, I really like his style as a fighter, but I think as far as the level, that he would be a step down from Matt Wiman,” said Miller.

“I’d be happy to fight Cowboy whenever, at any weight, I don’t care.”
