Nope. He actually did the noble thing and got right back into the fight. he could have tried to plead a case for a longer pause or try to muddy the situation... but he got right back in once he realized the fight wasn't stopped and he needed to keep fighting.

Dan's fault, not Miller's.

Color text = attention whore. Come up with more interesting things to say rather than creating gimmick.

Mistakes happen. Everyone did the right thing after the screw up. This is no different than a bad call in other sports.

Miller showed why he has so many fans.

He admitted it was not low and fought through the pain without taking a break.

Obviously it was a shitty situation but I think Miller handled it better than most fighters would have.

A person can tell if they were kicked in the balls. Miller acted like he was kicked in the balls. Was he? Sure doesn't seem like it. These are facts.
He was hurt to the body from the kick. Did you see how Dunham went down? Was he pretending to be kicked in the balls too?

Miller took virtually no time for the foul even though he was clearly still hurt. That was the most honorable thing he could do in the situation.

It was a mistake by Dan, but the flack he's getting for it is ridiculous. Watching it live and seeing Millers reaction I thought it was a low shot too.

No it was shitty but it happens and the ref, Miller and Cerrone all handled it very well

yeah - IIRC, Miller reached for his stomach area, not his groin.

as for those saying Miller didn't say anything to the ref to confirm it was NOT low, what exactly did you expect under the circumstances? Miller was clearly very hurt, but should have waved off the ref and accepted a beating while he was incapacitated? LMAO

What was he supposed to say, "Oh, no, call it off, because you PROBABLY would have stopped it there, or stopped it soon afterward with follow-up punches, or Cerrone might have gotten a choke like he did against Barboza, I mean I was probably about to lose so I may as well quit now"?

Do people really think that would have made him look better? He absolutely did the right thing.
