Ricardo Funch (8-3 MMA, 0-3 UFC) has felt the pressure before. But this time, it's greater than ever.

Funch, in his second stint with the UFC, still is in search of his first win with the promotion. Friday, he meets Dan Miller (13-6 MMA, 5-5 UFC) at UFC on FX 4 and knows what is at stake.

"This is the fight of my life and it's the only thing I'm thinking about," Funch recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

Funch got a second chance with the UFC when he took a short-notice fight against Mike Pyle in his native Brazil this past January at UFC 142. But the Massachusetts-based welterweight didn't find any more success in Brazil than he had in his UFC fights in the States and Canada. Pyle stopped him in just 82 seconds.

Funch realizes that because he helped the UFC out when Paulo Thiago dropped out of the fight against Pyle, he has one more shot Friday in Miller's home state of New Jersey.

Funch hasn't won a UFC fight, and won't. It sucks he got faced up with three wrestlers and now a Former Middleweight contender who has great ground game. Back to regional shows for funchie.
