And how it will help him....
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Jim Miller (22-4 MMA, 11-3 UFC) spoke about how his new approach to training will help him win at UFC 168 against Fabricio Camoes (14-7-1 MMA, 1-2-1). Here are the highlights...
On his time off: "It did me some good to heal up. I've put a few miles on my body and was a little banged up for the last couple fights. So it was good to do some physical therapy and stuff like that. I don't like spending time away and not be able to train and be in the gym and fight. But I used the time well, I guess."
On his work to get to the top of the lightweight division: "I've done the work to put myself in the Top 10 in this division, and it's going to take a bit to get me out of there. I'm still here, and as long as my body cooperates, I'll prove that I belong and prove I can beat these guys."
On how he's changed training: "I'm feeling better than I've felt in more than a year, and I'm ready to mix it up. I've made a lot of mistakes. I used to train like a 24-year-old and go in there and push hard and go basically as hard as you can go. But I've learned a lot of lessons and from the mistakes I've made in training. Now I focus on technique."
