He's planning to appeal...
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Cole Miller (19-8 MMA, 8-6 UFC) said that his fight with Manny Gamburyan (13-7 MMA, 4-5 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 26 should have never went to a judges' decision and he is planning an appeal. Check out the highlights:
On why he's seeking an appeal: "I've got no ill will toward [Lavigne] or want a rematch. I just want a little bit of justice for myself so I can get what I work hard for."
On what rules were broken: "I was obviously distracted with Ronda Rousey and (Jacob) 'Stich' Duran in my corner right behind me, helping this fighter, listening to the instructions that are given from my corner. That's not allowed to happen. If I wasn't penalized, then why does [Gamburyan] get a break?"
On why one single loss matters: "When it comes to contract renegotiations, it's not going to matter if there's an asterisk or what you websites said. It has to do with numbers and results, and how you can sell those numbers and results."
