"I'm on my own chopping block. If I lose to him, I'm quitting! I don't even deserve to be in there! There's not an easy fight. In the UFC, there's no easy fight. He doesn't deserve to be in there with me, and I'll prove it," Miller said.
Miller might be a little extreme to place such an ultimatum for himself but "Mayhem" seeks to use his upcoming fight with Dollaway as a form of redemption.
"I'll prove it in under a round, because, we see I tend to get tired in the second round (laughs). We're both in a similar spot in our career I guess. We're both on the chopping block. That's fine. I'm really happy with that," Miller said.
Miller's last Octagon outing was the infamous performance against Michael Bisping at The Ultimate Fighter finale 14. In Miller's first UFC fight since UFC 52, many expected a great bout pitting the two opposing coaches against one another.
What unfolded was a three round domination by Bisping, particularly from the second round onwards, as Miller fatigued quickly and eventually loss via TKO at the 3:34 mark of the third round. Miller's performance was criticized by many including UFC president, Dana White, who was unsure if Miller would ever fight again in the UFC.
"I don't get my ass kicked by sucky guys. I beat the Hell out of 'em. I just came up short that night. I'm not gonna make excuses for it. There's no point to doin' it. You know what I mean," Miller said.
For Miller's opponent, Dollaway who was once the golden boy for Rampage's team on The Ultimate Fighter season seven has been on a slump. Dollaway has dropped his last two bouts to Jared Hamman and Mark Munoz via TKO and KO respectively.
Will Miller retire or will "Mayhem" send Dollaway into a three fight losing streak? Miller vs. Dollaway is set for UFC 146 May 26 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
