Now that he's dispatched Joe Lauzon, Jim Miller would like to fight the man who was supposed to be in his shoes at UFC 155. That's Gray Maynard, who previously handed Miller his first loss in the UFC octagon. "It will be four years ago in March," Miller told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio).
