Cage Potato offers up an exclusive interview with Cole Miller during his cut to featherweight for his tilt tonight on FX.
He arrived in Sydney on his own dime earlier than the UFC flew out the other fighters on the card to acclimate to the time zone change and resulting jet lag. “You spend almost an entire day in the air, not eating the food you should, getting dehydrated. And then you land and it takes another day to get used to the time change,” Miller says.
Still, the 6-foot-1 fighter doesn’t seem worried about making the 145 featherweight limit Thursday. “This will be the first time in a long time that I’m cutting weight but I’m not concerned about it,” Miller tells CagePotato. “[Does it] suck? Sure. It’s shitty because weight cutting is shitty. But it’s not an extreme weight cut. There’s no sauna. It’s a smart weight cut. I’ve been doing things the right way, with proper weight training and proper nutrition.”
