    I'm surprised there hasn't been more talk about this fight. Personally I'm looking forward to this just as much as Cain / JDS.

    I'm a big Lauzon fan and as much as I want him to win, I can see Miller taking a decision or maybe even a KO.

    Gonna be a war.

    As a huge Lauzon fan, I have to say that Miller will likely take this. Lauzon will have to catch him early or the fight will be easy for Miller after a few minutes. Miller is also the superior grappler.

    This fight is gonna be awesome. I gotta give it to Lauzon. I think he wants it more.

    I am on the fence with this fight, I am having a hard time picking a winner. They are both very good grapplers so I think it will come down to who can out strike the other. Joe has the reach advantage there... either way this will be a good fight...

    For sure any Lauzon fight gets me excited, i think he takes this. Who would you say has the edge in the stand up?

    I really don't think either has an advantage on the ground. I see Lauzon being able to outstrike miller

    Miller will use his wrestling and submission defence to take lauzon down and control the fight en route to a ud or sub.

    I think a lot of people really under-estimate Lauzon's stand up. I'm hoping it'll be a war but I think Joe takes this fight convincingly.

    Just my opinion.

    miller. and i wouldnt be surprised if it was a total beatdown.

    but the ufc seems to really be pushing lauzon pretty hard here. its hard for me to consider it the co-main. dont get me wrong, love em both, awesome fighters, but hard for me to consider them top 10 in the ufc (based on accomplishments, not skills). boestch/costa is much more important of a fight, but could be not as explosive as lauzon/miller. man, im talkative..

    Miller.. and he may make it look distrubingly easy. rd 1 choke for jimmy

    probably Miller by UD but i'm rooting for Joe to pull off a sub or TKO.

    I am a big Jim Miller fan and like Lauzon too and I think people are underestimating Lauzon a bit. I am picking Miller to win but I don't think he's going to absolutely dominate him.

    Should be an epic scrap. Both guys are awesome to watch. I have Miller by decision.

    Miller doesn't have big power to KO Lauzon and I don't see Joe gassing. I doubt any will lose by sub, Lauzon will have the power advantage for sure. I feel Miller was gassed in the 2nd vs Nate. Lauzon TKO's Miller

    Though history wqould indicate that because Lauzon has momentum in this fight, that he would lose here; I think he take this by submission by being more dynamic. I think Miller will then drop to featherweight.
