Some fighters feel an enormous amount of added pressure when they compete on their home turf. They are surrounded by the friends and family that don’t often get to be there when fighting at some away from home location, thus multiplying the expectations of a winning performance.
Jim Miller, however, isn’t that guy.
In a recent interview on UFC Tonight, Miller said that he feels no added pressure fighting on his home turf… he’s just excited.
He also talked in detail about his expectations of Nate Diaz and their fight at UFC on Fox 3, as well as whether or not he intends to brew a special celebratory beer if he leaves the Octagon with a win.
