If Miller can get him to the ground then yes Wiman will lose. He might be able to eek out a UD though. Wiman is tough. I had Edgar being abloe to outwork him for the UD, but now i don't know what to do. with the fact that if miler had more time I would definatly pick him by sub...............most likley will anyways.

I actually think Jim Miller is a tougher opponent than Frankie. I realize that Frankie beat Miller in 2006 but i think Miller has stepped up his game quite a bit since then and his jiu jitsu is outrageously good as shown by how he manhandled a world class grappler in David Baron.

Miller by 1st round submission



Thiago Tavares is a world class grappler and Wiman held his own on the ground with him, I'm still going with Wiman but I see this as a bigger challenge than Frankie Edgar who I think Wiman clearly had beaten on the feet.
