Miller (36-17 MMA, 25-16 UFC) has been eager to be part of the UFC’s historic 300th pay-per-view event in April, but many people have been worried about his inclusion after he was booked for a Jan. 14 bout against Gabriel Benitez at UFC Fight Night 234.
Miller has been part of UFC 100 in 2009, defeating Mac Danzig. He was also part of UFC 200 where he finished Takanori Gomi by first-round TKO in 2016. The 40-year-old, who has won four of his past five bouts, will get his wish, according to White.
“That is a great story,” White told TNT Sports on Miller. “I’ll get that done for you. I’ll get Jim Miller on the card for you. Consider that done… Text Mick (Maynard) and Sean (Shelby) and tell them we need Jim Miller on UFC 300 so I don’t forget.”
White has big plans for UFC 300. He promises a stacked card from top to bottom.
“The difference between a 300 is – listen, if you look at the card this weekend, this card is awesome,” White said. “You want to build these amazing cards that make people lose their minds, but there’s also so much more to it with a 300. There’s this whole what is the feel of the show going to be. We put on a live event and a television show, too, and what are we going to build around the event?
“What’s going to make 300 more special than this Saturday night, the last pay-per-view of the year. So, there’s a lot more that goes into it than just the card, but what you can expect is the first prelim of the night for you to be going like, ‘Holy sh*t, this is the first prelim of the night? This is insane. This isn’t even right. These two shouldn’t be on the first prelim of the night.’ That’s how good 300 is going to be.”
